Chicken Tikka Masala

Today was not in a mood to have usual chicken for lunch so thought why not try something different, made Chicken Tikka Masala...totally worth spending my time making it and also taking in the extra calories :-) This one is pure indulgence because it has lots of cream, almonds, cashew, butter and curd but then once in a while we can be indulgent. If you are in  a mood for some rich food then do try this Chicken Tikka Masala. It is worth it!
