Chicken Tikka Masala

As I have already mentioned before, there will be curries a plenty coming your way this year but I have to say, it will be hard to move past this one.  It was amazing!!  So much flavour and every bit of sauce was mopped up with the naan bread (which by the way was made by my husband - the non cook!!).  Now if you are the type of family that doesn't like HOT food then leave out the cayenne pepper but if you LOVE hot food add more.  The measurements in this recipe suited my family perfectly.  My kids have become incredibly tolerant to spice and heat by gradually adding more chilli to the curries but this one I would consider a mild curry.  I see a fight at lunchtime today over the leftovers!!!  Enjoy.  Eb x
