Chicken Tikka Masala

I love Indian food, but I must admit I’ve rarely attempted to make it.  This Chicken Tikka Masala from Jane Deere looks fabulous, and might be a good first foray for me into the world of Indian cuisine!

chicken tikka masalaI was a little stumped to begin with because there are so many ethnic cuisines out there that are challenging and complex.  I finally decided to go with Indian cuisine.  I really like all of the layers of flavor and heat that makes up a lot of Indian recipes…the catch is that I have never made any before!

After some suggestions from good friends, I settled on a traditional classic, Chicken Tikka Masala, which is a delicious dish, that I imagine is a soul warming Indian comfort food.  Marinated pieces of chicken are grilled and then added to a rich, spicy cream sauce. The combination of Indian spices, saffron and grilled chicken add a smokey flavor to the dish. I served it over steamed rice along with warm Naans, which are South Asian flat breads, particularly popular in India.
