I love Indian food and I love it even more when I can whip it up in  a little over 30 minutes. This is an easy, delicious, and healthy dish that you are sure to enjoy. Feel free to adjust the “heat” according to your taste. Masala is already mildy hot, as the word masala literally translates to heat/hot. If you’d this chickpea tikka masala spicier add an additional Serrano chile. Wooo! Cue the 80’s song, “Some Like It Hot!”

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
