Chicken Tikka Masala

This favorite Indian curry is actually considered one of Britain's national dishes because it's so popular. Chris fell in love with curries while living in Scotland (think of Indian curry shops in Scotland as what Mexican restaurants are to America).

Here's an really good recipe on-line for Chicken Tikka Masala, but we don't usually use the cilantro garnish.

It's most tasty over rice (white or brown) and served with naan bread, an Indian flatbread used to dip in the sauce or eat in between bites to calm the intense curry flavor in one's palatte. :)

Here's also the recipe for dhal bread, another Indian flat bread, that I usually make to go along with it. It's WAY yummy and super easy to make. This flatbread recipe is basic, which makes it very versatile for savory meals or sweet treats like jam on top!
