Hot Chikka Masala – Winter Glow

My version of a tikka masala curry is a real winner on a cold winter’s night. This recipe from my Winter Glow Cleanse is packed with the golden thread spices you’ll notice in many of the recipes: turmeric, ginger, garlic, and fresh chili – all highly beneficial for boosting the immunes system.

This recipe uses chicken but you can substitute it with fish or even chickpeas or eggplant for a meat-free version.
