I wanted to cook a double portion of chicken tikka masala so did two pans of one portion as not sure if doubling spices in one pan would work. I don’t normally cook big portions and did not want to make a mistake. Would doubling spices be okay in one pan? Sorry if this seems silly I just did not want to make a mistake with the dish. I did not add any green chilli as my friends children were eating. Thank you

Thanks @Hari Ghotra it’s so much fun. I know a bit silly two tikka masala’s on the go but will go up by half next time. All eaten in a flash!

@traceyross I totally understand - the way you are cooking you will soon start to add spices instinctively. Spices go a long way so they don’t need doubling up as @Jo dunn said I usually go up by half. Keep at it!!

Thank you @Jo dunn for the tip it just seemed a bit scary to do as you say but at least I’ll know. I just need to try it.

That's great to hear about the pans, thank you @traceyross . Re the doubling of quantities: Hari advises to double the ingredients but not to double the spices, only one and a half times the spices. You can't go wrong with two pans though! I find it a bit scary doubling up, but "Courage Mon Amie!", if it goes wrong at least you'll be learning!!!! 🙊🤔🙌💕

Loving the red Aldi Crofton enamelled cast iron pots. A bargain, been using a few weeks now and no complaints. Heat up lovely, so delighted with them. I’ve bought two pots and a pan, love cooking with them. They don’t cost a lot so worth a go for a novice.
