After a week spent outside in the beautiful sunshine and warm weather (in mid-February!), the temperature has taken a nose dive this weekend. That makes this a perfect time to make a hearty curry for (maybe?) this last venture into winter.
Chicken Tikka Masala is a spice-filled, tomato-based Indian curry full of delicious tender chicken.
I use a Tandoori spice blend from Spiceology to marinate the chicken before roasting it and adding it to the curry base. You could also use a prepared tandoori paste, or a mixture of garam masala, turmeric, coriander, and Kashmiri chili powder.
Serve over rice with naan bread, if desired. Recipe for homemade Naan Bread:
