I guess we won’t be ordering Indian take out anymore.. because this tikka masala was fantastic!!  This recipe was seriously restaurant-quality with the added bonus that you actually know every thing that is going into it.

I always associate Indian food with being heavier than I normally eat (probably because I always get samosas) but this dish is full of flavor and also health friendly.  Will probably add chickpeas & potatoes next time I make it too!
