Featuring Mashalls Creek Spice of the Day: Garam Masala Blend

You CAN make your own blend of Garam Masala. But you will save a lot of time & money purchasing ours. We’ve already pre-mixed the most popular flavors of the best Indian food including: Cumin, Cloves, Black Pepper, Coriander, Cinnamon, Salt, Cardamom, Ginger  Most of all,  because we only use pure high grade spices, the taste exceeds store bought varieties.

Serves 4
Ginger Knob
1 1/2 in. Whole Ginger*
4 Garlic Cloves or Marshalls Creek Minced Garlic
1/2 Yellow Onion
1 1/2 lbs. Chicken Breast🐔
1 1/2 tbsp Garam Masala blend*
2 tbsp Olive Oil*
1 tbsp Tomato Paste
1 1/2 tsp Paprika*  We have a variety of paprika to suit your taste and fit this recipe. Sweet paprika, hot paprika, Hungarian paprika
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper*
1 (28oz) can Crushed Tomato🍅
1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp Lemon Juice🍋
1/4 cup Cilantro*
Cooked Jasmine/Basmati Rice for serving 🍚🍚
  • Pulse ginger and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. Add onion and pulse until finely chopped. Toss chicken with 1 1/2 tsp garam masala and 1 tsp salt. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, rotating halfway through cooking, until cooked through, about 6 – 7 minutes total. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  • Heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion mixture and saute until onions have softened, about 3 minutes. Add tomato paste, remaining 1 Tbsp garam masala, the paprika, and cayenne and cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds. Add crushed tomatoes, season with salt to taste, and cook stirring occasionally until mixture is hot, about 2 minutes (you can let it simmer longer if needed if the canned tomatoes used were watery. If the canned tomatoes were thick you can add a few Tbsp of water if needed to thin the sauce mixture). Return chicken to pan and cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat, stir in Greek yogurt and lemon juice. Serve warm over rice topped with cilantro.
