“Healthy” Chicken Tikka Masala

Low Fat Chicken Tikka

Chicken Tikka Masala, No Cream

This restaurant style dish is lower in calories and lower in fat, besides being packed with protein and flavor. Ingredients have been thoughtfully chosen to bring out the restaurant style flavor. The thick gravy does not contain cream or a ton of oil, but a nice tomato puree that blends in with the sauteed onions. Enjoy with a bowlful of salad and whole wheat roti or phulkas, since it does not contain fiber. Mint-yogurt chutney complements this dish very well. I will post the recipe of the chutney soon. Do send me your comments if you try.
