well after postponing it all weekend i finally started making the Chicken Tikka Masala at 5pm on Monday, only to discover it had to marinate overnight! ooops!
so last night I finally cooked it up. it was good, though the recipe definitely needs tweaking (it had too much lime juice for a start) like the Butter Chicken did. This recipe is a perfect recipe for the Thermomix (other than the grilling of the chicken and the marinading i did all the rest in the TMX) so when i've had a bit more of a play with the recipe i'll post a conversion.
we had it with rice (of course lol), some more of tenina's naan's (last of the freezer stash), a lentil and beet chard dish (ryan said "oh YUM, i LOVE lentils!! when he saw it lol) and a vegie dish which i thought would be a disaster, but was actually quite nice. no recipes today, but i will note down spice combos so i have them for another time...
black mustard seeds
garam masala (need to find which recipe i used and make more!)
sugar snap peas
aagh can't remember the other spices... will have to come back later
and flickr isnt cooperating with uploading photos this morning either :(
