This comforting bean and beef tikka masala sauce is a complete meal in itself, served with rice, pasta, or warm crusty bread for scooping up the hearty deliciousness.
Hi! Welcome, I am glad that you are here. This is my first post, and I am in utter shock!
As humans, we are often afraid to fail, thereby hindering our chances to take individual steps in life. I have been holding off on blogging for the longest time.
For starters, I had zero ideas of what and how to go about sharing what I love with the world. I've always had support from family and friends but never wanted to forge ahead to a more prominent platform like the inter-web because of fear of the unknown. You know, what if I fail? What if I don't?
I let fear hold me hostage. Wish me luck! Well, I am here, ready to cook up a storm to satisfy your appetite.
Now that we've got that out of the way let's talk about this healthy, hearty, and profoundly satisfying bean and beef tikka masala sauce.
Tikka masala sauce is a creamy bright-colored curry sauce often made with coconut cream, cream, tomato purée, and an array of continental spices.
The sauce might look intimidating at first glance, but it's easy to make at home. Although chicken is the number one animal protein of choice that people lean towards when preparing a dish with tikka masala sauce, you can make it with whatever you fancy. I make the beef version more than I do any other animal protein. So, play around and see what sticks.
Today, I am making a quick and easy dish with a store-bought tikka masala sauce.
Don't judge me! This is for my ladies and gents who want a prompt and effortless option for a weeknight meal. All you need is 30 minutes from prep to finish.
You can find Tikka masala sauce online here or any big chain grocery stores (be sure to check the international product aisle)-affiliate link. It's essential to get a good quality sauce as there are many diluted versions in the market.
