    You have done a great job with the tikka masala. I agree that Indian food/spices names can be overwhelming and the list is usually long, if you are not used to using them, but once use them you will realize almost all the recipes use the same spices in most of the dishes. But this is one of my favorite!

    Chicken Tikka Masala is the national dish of England! It was created in England, where there is a significant population of Indian descendants. Thought you might enjoy this interesting tidbit. Your picture looks great!

    I've made this recipe from Cook's Illustrated several times and love it! It tastes almost exactly like the Chicken Tikka Masala at my favorite Indian restaurant, which is, unfortunately, 800 miles away….

      Emily, I've never used a broiler that allowed you to select a temperature. Most of the ovens I've used just have a “broiler” button – sometimes they allow you to choose between “high” and “low” – I used “high.”
