Tofu Tikka Masala

Tofu Tikka Masala

There is something about Indian food that I find extremely comforting. Just having a big pot of warm curry with rice and some naan makes me pretty happy, especially on these colder days. We have had about a week of winter with snow & colder temperatures here in Germany, but it has gone back to fall now with about 8°C and rain.

This rich & creamy curry was pretty easy to make and tasted awesome with brown rice. I also made some mango lassi and garlic naan with it. You can find the recipe for the garlic naan here.
