Chicken Tikka Masala

I got the  privilege  to  explore the Indian cuisine through the Chicken Tikka Masala spice blend that I received from Love With Food.  My husband love Indian food but I have never tried any so I was excited when I saw the  mix  included in the box.  The recipe  was very easy to  make and I had fun   cooking with my daughter.

Here is the step by step for Arora Creations Chicken Tikka Masala:

You will need:
  • 3/4 cup olive oil (I only used one table spoon)
  • 1 medium onion minced (I used half)
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless  chicken cubes (I only used two pieces medium size of chicken breasts)
  • 1/2 cup minced ginger (I used 1 teaspoon)
  • 4 cloves garlic minced (I used  a little bit of Garlic Gold Nugget as I am not fond of garlic)
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce (I used my homemade tomato sauce)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (I used dried parsley)
*Just ignore the changes I made to the ingredients, I cooked  based on what I  have  available in my kitchen.
How to Cook:
  • Heat oil in a sauce pan over medium heat for 1 minute.
  • Add onion, ginger, garlic,  and cook until light brown.
  • Add Arora Creation Chicken Tikka Masala spice blend and stir constantly for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add chicken cubes and cook stirring frequently for 8-10 minutes.
  • Finally add 3/4 cup water, stir once, cover and cook for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with cilantro (I used dried parsley on mine).

You can served this over hot  rice or Indian bread.  We ate ours with  steamed rice.

I have a very sensitive sense of smell and because Indian  foods has a lot of different spices, it made me nauseous.  I love how it tasted though despite the smell.  The kids love them and  so is the husband.  Over all, we had a success on our first Indian cuisine adventure.  I may or may not cook Indian food again but we will see.
