Trying to figure out chicken tikka masala seasoning
After eating chicken tikka masala for years, I've finally decided to try to make it from scratch myself. I've never cooked Indian food before and my biggest hesitation is every recipe I see has a different blend of spices that goes along with the garam masala. Most times those spices are already part of the garam masala spice mix. My particular version has coriander, clove, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, and black pepper. If I use 2 tsp of this garam masala, what else should I include? I was thinking equal parts turmeric and chili powder, but would love to hear suggestions from people who know how to cook Indian food. Thanks in advance.
