We love Indian food! Who doesn't. So to really test my cooking skills I decided to make Chicken Tikka Masala. Now Garam Masala really is just a combo of some normal spices. If you wanted to be thrify you could attemp to make it. But I figure I want to get the right portions. So I splurged and bought a few spices. Let's be honest, it was a pretty penny...like $15 for about 4 different spices but I figure now I can make some indian dishes at least a dozen times. I found a great recipe that was so simple and not too messy.
The results we're this...

DOesn't this photo just make you salvatate all over your keyboard!! Head the call of that grumbling stomach and try it. I'm a bit lazy today so to find the recipe check out the Pioneer Women. Enough said right! You know it will be great!
For a vegetarian version just gently steam (grill, boil etc) some potatoes and cauliflower and substitute it for the chicken. We cook every week with some youg women from church and they are vegitatirans and still loved it. It will be your Aloo Gobi Masala!!
Note: If possible, season the veggies as you would the chicken to give it extra flavor. I think on the grill, boiling or saute would be best!
