Many, many moons ago I lived in London which had the most amazing Indian restaurants in the world. This is when I developed my love for curry. At the time I was a vegetarian and my favorite was this creamy curry dish with potatoes, peas and chickpeas, I would crave this dish. Thankfully I could walk right down the street at any point and grab it to go. Once I moved back to the states, any chance I got to head out to a Indian restaurant I would. Fast forward 15 years later with a husband and kids in tow I don’t have as many of those opportunities so I’ve resorted to making curry dishes. I have to say my husband hasn’t been the biggest fan of curry, let me just say this…it’s been hit or miss with my curry creations. So when I had an opportunity to try out a new local brand of Indian sauces I jumped at the chance to try something new.
The Sassy Indian sauces created by a local mother captured what makes Indian food so appealing to many. Made with all natural ingredients and best of all no genetically modified ingredients. The Sassy Indian sauces come in Red Curry, Tikka Masala, and Rogan Josh varieties. The Sassy Indian also offers a duo of natural infused olive oils including Tandoori and Jalapeno which my hubby would love and is great for marinades and to spice up salad dressings.
I personally tend to make Indian inspired dishes more so in the cooler months, to me it’s considered comfort food. Reminding me of those carefree London days…Ahh! But, with this heat here in Philadelphia I was NOT turning on my oven or using my stove. Grilling was a must! I used the Tikka Masala sauce for my chicken and it was a hit even with my picky eater. Here is my grilled chicken curry recipe, hope you like it.
- 1 jar of Tikka Masala Sauce
- 6-8 Chicken Tenderloins
- Optional: Sprigs of oregano or cilantro
- Using a glass dish with lid place chicken and half of the Tikka Masala Sauce, let marinade overnight or at least a few hours before you start cooking
- Heat grill to medium/high heat
- Grill 5-6 minutes on each side - do not overcook
- Serve with rice and grilled vegetables
My husband LOVED it and I was actually pretty surprised that my little picky eater liked it too. He is the child that smells his food and anything with a tiny bit of spice he turns his nose up to. Two thumbs up from the O’Boy! Crew. Wondering where to purchase The Sassy Indian sauces and oils? They are available at regional Whole Foods, Giant, Ingles, and Shop Rites across the East Coast.
