My take on Tikka Masala

Prepping tonight’s tummy pleasing delights:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Red & Green Bell Peppers
Diced Red Onion
Coconut Milk
Salt & Pepper
Tomato Paste
Garlic
Cilantro
Lemon Juice
Coriander & Paprika

  • Simmer the above ingredients in a sauce pan for about 30 minutes. Whilst that is cooking, place some chopped chicken breast & diced red onion on a cookie sheet, drizzle with EVOO along with a few pinches of salt & pepper, and bake in the oven (at 375 degrees) for 20 to 25 minutes. Then combine the two as you see in the picture above and simmer for an additional 15 minutes.  Pour this atop of a mound of cooked yellow rice and serve it with some freshly baked naan bread.

Time to test this out🍽

Finally making some eggplant Parmesan for dinner:

EVVO
Eggplant
Clove of Garlic
Basil
Parmigiano Cheese
Marinara Sauce
Italian Bread Crumbs (place in a bowl)

1-2 Eggs (place in a bowl)

  • After peeling and slicing the eggplant, place it in the egg batter and then the Italian bread crumbs before baking it on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes (be certain to flip the pieces of battered eggplant 15 minutes into baking, so that each side becomes nicely toasted) at 400 degrees. Then take a few dollops of marinara sauce and place it in the bottom of your casserole dish before creating layers of baked eggplant, sauce, chopped basil & garlic along with a healthy showering of cheese. Repeat until you’ve run out of ingredients and then bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 400 degrees.
