My husband and I went on a dinner date with our friends at Jewel of Himalaya which is an Indian restaurant in Yonkers.
I’ve never been here before but I heard great things about the food so I was excited to give it a try! I ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala and Garlic Naan which are two of my favorites! The food was so delicious, I left the restaurant completely full and satisfied lol! The staff was very attentive, friendly, and made us feel super comfortable. If you’re in the area, you should definitely check out this restaurant!
So last weekend I decided to try out 2 new recipes that my friend provided for me!
The first is Chicken Tikka Masala! I used boneless chicken breasts and cut them into cubes. I seasoned them with garlic powder, pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano, and basil. But what made the dish were the 2 sauces that were added!
The sauces were Tikka Masala Simmer sauce and Mango Ginger Chutney sauce! You can get both of these sauces from Trader Joes. They both smell so delicious on their own! I used about a cup of masala sauce and about 1/4 cup of the mango chutney sauce.
I cooked the chicken in a medium sauce pan until no more pink was visible. Then I added the sauces into the pan and mixed everything together. I covered the pan and let all the flavors simmer together on low heat for about 5-7 minutes. Once done cooking, I served over white rice, squeezed a little lime juice on top and garnished with fresh parsley.
The next recipe is for Thyme & Parsley Roasted Carrots! I shaved about 3-4 carrots and cut them in half. I seasoned them with salt and pepper and tossed them in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. I organized them on a baking sheet and put in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. Once the carrots were tender and began to get a little charred, I removed them from the oven. I tossed the roasted carrots in fresh thyme and parsley and squeezed juice from half of a lime over them. And that’s it! They’re ready to eat!
I actually didn’t have all the ingredients from my friend’s recipe so I improvised and it still turned out really tasty! Here is my friend’s recipe if you wanted it give it a try!
