My husband's birthday is October 13th, and I'm beginning to plan the birthday dinner party for him and his family. There will be six of us, and when I cook for six or more people on a weeknight, I generally like to do a one-pot meal (like gumbo, or chicken stew, etc) that I can possibly make ahead. For Chip's birthday dinner, I'm thinking about making Indian food.
I have a few go-to Indian dishes that I make regularly. I really like these Chicken Kebabs with Cilantro-Mint Chutney. I have two tomato-based chicken curry dishes that I go back and forth on, both from the All Recipes website: Indian Chicken Curry II and Fragrant Chicken Curry. Both are good, but neither of them really blow my socks off. So, I thought I'd ask you guys! Do you have a "blow-your-socks-off" chicken curry recipe that you can recommend?
So far, I am leaning towards this Chicken Tikka Masala recipe that was featured on one of my most favorite blogs, Posie Gets Cozy. It is by no means a healthy recipe (see that butter? that heavy cream?), so I probably won't be adding it to my regular rotation, but it might be good for a special occasion.
Chip's family all love Indian food and aren't scared of spicy dishes at all, so bring on the curry recipe recommendations!
