Yesterday, I baked a couple of pre-packed battered haddock for my baon to work later in the evening. I also brought a couple of tangerines and strawberry yogurt for my early morning snack. Only to know that I will not be having any of it.
I went doing the routine work when Babitha, our Indian co-worker who was there in the kitchen cooking up her chicken tikka masala, offered to give me some. Absolutely! Although, at the back of my mind, I was a little bit skeptical, hmmm, I heard that it is good but I haven’t tasted Chicken Masala ever or not even any masala dish. I also thought masala was a dish but Babs said it is a spice, a regular in every indian kitchen. She let me smell every spice she has in her little bag and from there, i knew that i would like masala, i would like indian food.
So she gave me a complete dinner, jasmine rice with fried chicken masala and sauteed chicken tikka masala. First bite was absolute HEAVEN! It is so yummy that I just wouldn’t want to stop eating. My nose was running because it is quite spicy but I LOVE IT! I can tolerate spicy foods well. It sort of tasted like crab aligue (crab fat)+coconutty hot and spicy curry!
I definitely want to know how to cook this dish!
