Organic Tofu Tikka Masala

Hello everyone,

On a recent grocery store trip….I was looking in the spice isle to try something new. I discover a organic low sodium seasoning packet for Chicken Tikka Masala. Since I love this dish….I thought why not give it a try but with tofu and that’s just what I did.

The packet gives you all the directions on what additional items, you will need to prepare the dish on the back (which I didn’t pay attention to until I got home). I zoomed right in on the nutritional fact’s and into the cart it went. So i had to improvise (we will get into that in a second). The packet serves 6.

I didn’t follow the packet directions exactly, so here’s where I improvised….. it calls for 3/4 Cup of Olive oil. I used 1/4 Cup Grape seed oil and 2/3 Cup of low sodium chicken stock (I just didn’t want that much oil in my dish). I also omitted the Cilantro (since I didn’t read the full label in the store I didn’t know I needed any) so I decided to used1/4 Cup of red, yellow and green peppers (I could have chosen to not use the pepper’s but I love them and just decided to add them). The packet also called for 8 oz. of tomato sauce….. I was out of tomato sauce and tomatoes…..so I used 1 Cup of Marinara sauce instead. I used organic tofu instead of chicken which was my initial twist on the dish. If you decide to use tofu as I did make sure it really firm. All and all this dish turned out really well.

Improvising turned out to be one delicious experiment!!!

Until Next Time,

Sewloveable ☺
