So, when I make dishes that are not familiar to me, I Google them so I know of what I speak …….
I found Tikka Masala to be an interesting story, why you ask??? It was created by accident……sorta how I cook!
The story goes that a Bangladeshi chef served a dish of traditional Chicken Tikka only to be asked by a British diner, “Where’s the gravy?” The miffed chef tossed in can of creamy tomato soup and spices and responded, “You want gravy? I’ll give you gravy!” The results were spectacular and the Indian/British Chicken Tikka Masala dish was born.Continue reading “Tikka Masala Naan Pizza”
The weather might be trying to keep a foothold in winter but, I am ready for Spring!!! This winter has been sooooo long, cold and snowy. I am not a huge winter weather lover, but this year was about more than a girl could stand. I will be putting my boots and winter coat away and no matter what happens, I will not put them on again until November!!!!!
Now, my rant is over, on to Spring talk…….I am ready to grill again. I know…….you can grill all winter if you want too, but, I don’t like to be cold ,so I AM NOT going to stand outside in the cold to grill. Sorry I think that was a rant again…….
Burgers, they beg to be grilled. I did not grill this burger, but will most certainly be making the Tandoori Chicken Burgers again very soon…… on the grill….did you hear that Mother Nature?
I have seen these burgers made with lamb, beef, or chicken, but in an effort to begin eating better, I chose chicken. The bread is Naan, an Indian flatbread, instead of a traditional bun. I am sure you can make the bread yourself, but I have found it readily available at the grocery store.
The Tandoori Chicken Burger is flavor packed, and topped with cucumber, red onion, cilantro and a cool yogurt sauce. Wrapped in the Naan, it makes a healthy alternative to a regular burger.
