Today we cooked Masterfoods Mild Chicken Tikka Masala – using the packet spice mix/ recipe base and I thoroughly enjoyed it, so far as to say, I have added it to my cook again list.
I cooked the rice in the Thermomix, a little disappointing as I have cooked rice in it before and it has cooked beautifully, this time there were patches of rice still crunchy. I put it back on to cook for a further 2 mins, turned out ok, but not overly happy
I made the recipe as is on the pack but would tweak a little next time and add onion and red capsicum.
I cooked the chicken in the pan on the stove, however, had Grumpy not been hovering I would have cooked it in the Thermomix and put it in the Thermoserver.
We both really enjoyed it.
I have not wanted to make curries, in fact never made a curry that is not with beef mince and curry powder and when we have that type of curry, we have condiments on top, peanuts, sultanas and dessicated coconut.
