Chicken Tikka Masala
Truth: Up until I made this dinner, I have never tasted Indian Food.
Not that I haven’t wanted to, in fact, I have been begging my hubby to take me out to an Indian restaurant for years. My husband, however, (don’t tell him I’m telling you this) is kind of a wimp when it comes to spices. Shhhh! He doesn’t like to admit to it :) I on the other hand, think the spices add FLAVOR! MMM! Well after hearing my cute sister-in-law, Sarah, rave about one of her favorite dinners, I decided to make it and not tell my husband what it was until he tried it. She actually got the recipe from our mutual friend, Meg at Big Red Clifford, and now it has made its way into our family rotation.
As I was making it, I started to become a little nervous at how he would respond to this recipe. Seasonings are definitely a HUGE part of this meal. However, after tasting the sauce, it was like I could hear bells ringing in my head at the incredible flavor explosion this dish presented. I knew he was going to like it.
After eating it, he kept telling me how great it was… and thats when I laid it on him- that it was actually an Indian dish. Needless to say, we will be visiting an Indian restaurant asap to try out other yummy recipes.
Do any of you have a favorite Indian dish I need to try out?! I am in new territory here and can’t wait to dive into this new found flavor :)
