Anyone have a source for a good recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala?<br><br>
I had some last week and it was absolutely declicious. It tasted similar to a Persian Khoresh dish made with eggplant. But this one was spicy and made with chicken and Indian Spices.<br><br>
I had forgotten how much I liked Indian food.

Chicken Tikka is absolutely divine! I don't know if Masala is different in some way. The Tikka my SO makes uses plain, non-fat yogurt, no cream. It's from one of Madhur Jaffrey's cookbooks, I think it is "A Taste of India" but I'm not certain.
