So could this be used in a tikka masala or are we talking about completely different items here?

The masala is pretty much the same, tikka is usually referred to the little chicken pieces. When someone talks about Tandoori chicken they likely mean large piece. To keep authenticity tandoori chicken is cooked in clay oven but it's not necessary, it's not a common to have it, i don't :)
You can also have lamb tikka, which is small lamb pieces (often on skewers) and you can use tandoori masala on it

Tikka = small pieces

I might just steal your recipe ;)
I'll have to dry some mango's first though. That shouldn't be a problem as we grow them here.
Just a query: how much difference isvthere in taste between black and green cardamom?

Haha I would love for others to try these recipes. This forum has many professional level chefs, i'm just an experienced homecook so i love to hear what the pro's think about what i make!

There's a little difference between the cardamoms. Green cardamoms can also be used in sweet dishes, where both have a floral (if you will) taste, the black cardamom is a bit more peppery, bit more stronger so it suits more spice dishes than sweet. Sometimes if i am cooking a spicy dish and i have black cardamoms already added but i feel like there is a bit more missing, i may use green cardamoms. It wont work other way with sweet dishes because the black is more peppery.

I hope this helps!
