Chicken Tikka MasalaI have never tried to prepare an Indian dish on my own but I can sure say that I'm a fan of Indian food. Tikka Masala is always one of my go-to menu choices at Indian Restaurants and it was time to try it out on my own. After finding this recipe here I felt inspired to give it a try and I have to say that it worked out great.
It's such a blessing to live in a country and state so culturally diverse that you'll have no problems to find all the ingredients. One of the main ingredients of course is Garam Masala, which I was able to pick up at the International Market around the corner but you can also order it online if necessary.
Can I just say that I love the huge rice bag with the handle? Very convenient!! We got Basmati Rice, Garam Masala spice (which you can also mix yourself), Yogurt, Diced Tomatoes, Half and Half, Chicken Tenders, Onion, Garlic, Butter, Cumin, Ginger, Ground Coriander and Turmeric. Adding peas and turmeric to the rice turned this into a colorful and appealing dish with great taste.
I'm amazed on how well it turned out the first time considering my frustration with Asian dishes. I highly recommend that you try it out if you like this kind of food. It's just as good warmed-up! Do you like Indian Food and have you tried to prepare it at home yet? Any good recipes you'd like to share?
