My recipe of the day is with Foodie Extravaganza as we are posting recipes to start off the new year 2020 for National Curry Chicken Day which occurs on January 12th. But since we only post each month on the first Wednesday, the actual day will sometimes follow afterwards.

Special chicken tikka masala is the name given to this dish by a local eatery (Dushmesh) in Cincinnati. I am not sure if it is the official name or not.

I was given this one time by accident when we picked up some take-out and I had ordered something else. But having already left the scene of the mistake, I gave it a taste and decided I liked it, whatever it was. Upon examining their menu I deduced the name.

This recipe is very similar to chili chicken. Except for that one in particular, I think it uses plain chicken, whereas this one has the addition of tandoori masala spice. I didn't notice the addition of any yogurt as you might get with chicken tikka masala. Which is boneless tandoori chicken in something like a butter curry sauce. At least locally.

I will probably get around to posting the chicken tikka masala. But that will be sometime after I post my recipe for tandoori chicken. As I have been refining my spice blend and have that recipe waiting to post.

Until I do post that recipe, you can feel free to use any commercial tandoori masala- Rajah is one brand I prefer (and I have based my personal spice blend on that one). If you can't find it locally, it is sold online.
