Tonight Scott and I made The Kitchen Bible's Chicken Tikka Masala recipe that he found through Cookstr.com. Had I taken a close look at the recipe initially, I probably would have realized that though it was pretty tasty, it wasn't too authentic. The final dish had a very acidic taste, probably from the boat load of lime juice involved in the sauce and marinade. It was also lacking in the spice department. It contained plenty of cilantro, some red chili, and a bit of turmeric and cumin. A classic Garam Masala spice blend would have been a better choice. Anyway, the final dish was pretty tasty, but hardly a knock-out, and not all that much like what I expect Chicken Tikka Masala to taste like. Next time I try for Tikka Masala, I think I am going to try Pioneer Woman's version, which came highly recommended by my littlest sis, Cait.
