If you want a quick and delicious Tikka Masala recipe for dinner tonight, then this recipe is the one you should try....but with changes. After reading the reviews, I substituted the spices as follows: 1 Tblsp minced ginger, 1 Tblsp minced garlic, 3 tsp garam masala, 2 tsp coriander, 2 tsp ground cumin, 1/4 tsp chili plus the salt and pepper as listed. I followed the recipe exactly except for the changes in the spices and it was a delicious dinner that I would make again.

This recipe is just awful. They call for way too much tomatoes, it turned out bland and just overall disappointing. Nothing close to the taste of tikka masala from even a mediocre Indian restaurant.
This recipe is terrible, and does not have any pros. I made a huge pan of it tonight for dinner and literally threw the entire thing out.
Follow these revisions to a great recipe!
Only use 1/4 the called for amount of tomatoes so 1 14 oz can with its juice.
Do not put ginger in this!!! I am sure that is why this recipe was said to be "off."
Also add juice of about 1/3 of a lemon.
When finished with recipe lightly salt and sprinkle with basil..
This recipe is just off. It is something with the tomatoes because I tried the tofu after the initial cooking and it was great. I cooked it way longer than it said too....hopefully the leftovers tomorrow taste better.
