HELPFUL TIPS! VEGETARIAN TIKKA MASALA
- Gently cook chickpeas in your home. Simply boil them for several hours and cook till tender, yet firm. You may use canned chickpeas alsojust be certain that they aren’t that soft to crack easily. I use my Immediate Pot to cook raw chickpeas. It requires 5-6 minutes to cook if chickpeas are high and about 30 minutes otherwise (without soaking).
- Use fresh berries for producing the tikka masala sauce. It provides a great refreshing flavor to the dish.
- This dish is milk vegetarian or free. But you are able to cheat and put in a little cream in the end of cooking if you’d like.
