Chicken Tikka Masala

We have one Indian shop in our town in comparison to the 10 Chinese restaurants and 82 hairdressers (seriously how does a town of 1000 need 82 hair dressers, small town mysteries). Now that I think about it, I honestly couldn’t tell you if they are still open. Indian definitely isn’t at the the top of Mr 7s list and unless husband has control of the amount of spices that go in, it doesn’t rank very high on his dining out/take away choices either. Which leaves me alone and mostly craving anything and everything with all the heat. While this dish doesn’t have much heat when made as written its easy enough to add more chilli or garam masala to your liking.
