    This is from the show Throwdown with Bobby Flay, Episode: Chicken Tikka Masala. I posted this to go with the Masala Sauce(Bobby Flay), which I posted separately. I am trying to replicate a recipe I tried up in Conn. Enjoy!

      I left out the salt, other than that made as written. Made for a perfect side with one of my chicken recipes. Very easy to throw together, we all devoured it. Made for PRMR tag.

      Fantastic and delicious rice! This is now my go-to Indian rice. Even DH likes it! And so easy to make, too. I used yellow mustard seeds, no salt, and brown basmati rice, which required about 10 extra minutes to cook. Thanks, Sharon123! Made for Newest Zaar tag game.
