This meal felt decadent and the flavor profile was impressive. I did not have garam masala on hand, much to my surprise, so I improvised based on a few google searches. I substituted: 1/2 tsp. curry powder, 1/2 tsp freshly ground coriander seeds, 1 freshly ground allspice, and 1/2 tsp smoked spanish paprika and it worked beautifully.
I also served it over quinoa instead of rice, which worked really well since it doesn't get soggy under the masala sauce. Fantastic recipe!!
