Easy Indian Style Okra
I wasn't expecting this to taste like a dish from the Indian rest. around the corner. I still expected a little bit of flavor to it. Even after doubling the spices and sprinkling cayenne pepper on it, nada. It just wasn't for us. I had to doctor it up to where it was a completely different recipe for it to be edible for us. I did read the other reviews and soaked it in vinegar and added garam masala. My okra wasn't slimmy. It was just bland for us. We ended up with a nice spicy Okra after adding cayenne and other Indian spices we had in the pantry.

Chicken Tikka Masala
Oh yum! Thank you for a wonderful recipe! I reduced the salt significantly to 1/4 tsp for the marinade and 1/3 tsp for the sauce. I broiled the chicken (turning once) since I live in a condo, and I don't have a grill. The second time I made it, I added some frozen peas and carrots to the sauce (before adding the cream). Also, I used low-fat yogurt for the marinade, and 3/4C fat free half and half + 1/4 skim milk for the sauce (it didn't separate and I didn't notice much difference, if any, in taste). Additionally, I added some Garam Masala to the marinade. Now, about the Cayenne, even if you *THINK* you can handle heat really well, please consider reducing the amount at least a little (to perhaps 1 1/2 tsp) and work up from there (maybe take it easy w/ the hot pepper too). This turns out VERY hot and that may make it inedible for a lot of people. Next time I make it I think I'll leave out the frozen peas and carrots :) but it was a fun experiment. It was good, but it's better sans the additional veggies, IMO. I served this with Basmati rice and homemade naan (recipe from this site).
