Homemade and fresh is certainly better but ive found a few items that are not bad with simple additions. MTR brand has several prepacked meals and a excellent Sambar powder. Rajah's Garam Masala is also quite good for those that want to keep it simple.
Today's meal is a mix of...
MTR Paneer Tikka Masala and MTR Paneer Makhani
Onions (im using 1 small white onion. Reds are better for this imo.)
Swad ginger garlic paste http://store.patelbr...r-garlic-paste/
A little turmeric (about a half tsp)
3 maybe 4 rotisserie chicken thighs (skinned and deboned) Leftover Tandoori chicken works great too.
Rajah's Garam Masala http://www.ishopindi...h-garam-masala/
A little cream or fat free half and half
Fresh chopped cilantro
Cook a couple teaspoons of ginger garlic paste in ghee for a minute or two till aromatic.
Chop the onions and cook in the same ghee until starting to soften.
Add a little turmeric and continue cooking the onions a couple more minutes
Add both packages of MTR single serving masalas to the pan
Add about a 1/4 cup of fat free half and half and simmer, Use a bit less if using cream.
Once its up to temp add about a handful of your peas and chicken. Take care not to shred the chicken when you stir it.
Just before your peas are done cooking add some fresh chopped cilantro and about 1/2 tbs of garam masala. Add some addition mirch now if you wish. Or add fresh peppers while cooking the onions. MTR brand is not bland so i suggest tasting it first.
Garnish with remaining cilantro and serve with Jasmine or Basmati and/or naan. Im using Jasmine today because im out of Basmati and its freaking cold outside.
Gunna have to wait on pics. My rice is soaking atm
