Chicken Tikka!

Chicken Tikka Masala

I have a love for Indian Films, I love Bollywood movies, they're just so cool. The breaking-into song and dance in the middle of a conversation, the colors and outfits, it's all wonderful.

When it comes to Indian food, I eat it and not make it, so I decided to research some recipes and find something that was simple and delicious. I made a couple of tweets to the recipe, so take a load of and watch a fabulous Bollywood movie with this dish

2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1/2-2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
2 Tablespoons of paprika
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
