This widely loved North Indian curry is a rich blend of tomato, yogurt, and warming garam masala spices like cumin, cinnamon, and clove. Simmer with chicken for an authentic Chicken Tikka Masala. Or let its bright citrus notes complement shrimp, paneer, or vegetables. Simmer with chicken, meat, seafood, tofu or vegetables for a quick delicious curry. Spoon over Rice or Noodles, use as a marinade, or mix into Soups.
