I grew up eating Indian food with my parents from a young age. I absolutely love the flavors and spices used in Indian cuisine and have stocked my own pantry with every Indian spice known to man (check out Kalustyan's in NYC for all your spice needs - they ship around the country too!). I realized I haven’t eaten or cooked Indian food in quite some time, so I decided to try out a recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala.
Usually when I go to an Indian restaurant, I always order the Chicken Tandoori. I have attempted to make Chicken Tandoori at home a few times, but you really don’t get the flavor that restaurants with a Tandoor oven do. So I figured I’d try another dish, and went with Tikka Masala.
This recipe came out AWESOME! Great to pair it with some kind of starch like Basmati Rice and/or Naan bread (which you can now find in most supermarkets!)
