Chicken Tikka Masala (Aarti Sequeira Recipe)

Ever since I attended Aarti Sequeira's cooking demo back in March, I had wanted to try some of her recipes.  Indeed, this was one of my goals for the summer.  I finally had the opportunity to do so last week when I tried her Chicken Tikka Masala, and all I can say is WOW!  It was by far one of the best things I've ever produced in my kitchen (and I've never made Indian food before).  Probably even better than what I've had at Indian restaurants, and R. was equally blown away as well.  The curry sauce was absolutely the perfect blend of tomatoey-tangy goodness with hints of ginger, garlic, and peppers.  Aarti's directions are also easy to follow.  Really, this dish made me feel Indian!  I can't wait to try more of her recipes...or make this one again.
