If you are checking out at the store and realize your only buying raw and fresh ingrediants to make EVERYTHING yourself, including salts, breads, etc, Have you fallen down the foodie rabbit hole? If so am I alone? Good addiction or crazy?
This is a question I pose to anyone willing to answer. Am I alone ??? I for the last ten years have watched foodnetwork EVERYDAY !!!!!! But now I feel a great hole in my heart when I turn it on. I feel I need more. The recipes seem easy and overdone. Been there done that comes to mind. I owe everything to Foodnetwork. But I now I crave more. I want to grand tasting, the second note flavor, the whole body experience. Am I alone or a snobby viewer ????
The secret to our Chicken Tikka Masala is a salty yogurt-based mariade followed by intense charring on a hot grill. We purposely undercook our chicken so it can simmer in a creamy spiced tomato and cream sauce before serving. When done right, the sauce should be a multifaceted affair; A balanced blend of intense spice flavors with a gingery kick rounded off by the richness of cream and butter, with a splash of freshness and acid from tomatoes and citrus. As you bite into a chunk of chicken, the smokey char should work its way though to the forefront, to be slowly replaced by a new layer of spicing, this time intensified by its time on the grill. The chicken chunks should be juicy, moist, and tender.
