I’ve not made much Indian food, but one night I was majorly craving a sweet and spicy sauce and Tikka Masala was it. To be fair, there is a Indian restaurant around the corner and the smells coming from that block were extra delicious. Spoon this amazing sauce on rice or roasted veggies.

Tikka Masala Sauce

2 tablespoon butter (or ghee, if you’ve got it)
1-2 chicken breasts or pork chops
1 onion, minced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 “knuckle” fresh ginger, minced (about 1″)
1 tablespoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon curry powder
16 oz. tomato sauce
1 large tomato, chopped
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas
1-2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup whipping cream
sliced almonds, for garnish

Melt butter in large skillet and just brown the meat. Add onion, garlic, ginger, and spices, stir about 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce and tomato, bring to a boil and add chickpeas, sugar, and whipping cream. Simmer 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Spoon over rice or roasted veggies (cauliflower or Brussels Sprouts are quite delicious) and top with sliced almonds.
