Tikka Masala (Food Is Memories)

I didn't grow up eating any type of Indian food, but when Haley made Chicken Tikka Masala for us one time when I visited their apartment, it was one of the most delicious and nourishing meals. Warm and spicy, yet also sweet in a way, it's a great meal for a snowy day.

I'd never made this recipe before this last week, but as soon as I tasted it, the flavor brought me right back to Caleb and Haley's little Chicago apartment on Mozart St. They live in Colorado now, but as the quote from The Hundred Foot Journey goes, "Food is memories."

This meal reminded me of memories with Caleb and Haley here in the city, and I look forward to making it again with them when I go visit them one day!

Find the recipe here: Chicken Tikka Masala.

Note: I used almond milk instead of heavy cream, and also added a slurry of starch and a bit of milk to make it a little thicker because of that swap.

I don't have anything special to say about Valentine's Day today, except that the Father's love is so so deep for his children. Soak that in amidst all else that is going on in life. It's a sweet promise and reality.
