Chicken Tikka Masala

Remember the leftover Chicken tikka from the other night?! I saved some to make chicken tikka masala to go with home made naans. My family enjoys this dish very much. And once the tikka is done, the rest is so easy to prepare. I can't wait to make this dish once mom and dad get back here with us. They both love it as well. And for my vegetarian friends, you can prepare the same dish with paneer, making it paneer tikka masala. I tried to make tofu tikkas, didn't taste good! May be I should start a yucky!(!) section on my blog and dump dishes like that there! And to be truthful and honest, not every new dish we try out comes out tasty! We are not Food Network chefs who would just prepare the best of the dishes for the shows!

Chicken Tikka Masala
About 1 lb Chicken tikkas
1 large onion,finely chopped
2 tbsp garlic paste
1 tbsp grated ginger
Salt to taste
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp or more(to taste) tandoori masala powder
1 medium tomato, chopped

Cubed green pepper for garnish

How to:
Heat oil in a sauce pot. Fry onion till golden brown. Add tomato puree and chopped tomato and cook till tomato pieces are soft.
