I don´t think I know anyone who doesn´t like Indian or Nepalese food. I have been trying to capture the real Indian taste by searching for Indian recipes and this one comes rather close. "It smells like India!", I shouted when I came home from zumba in the evening. Easy to cook and easy to eat. Makes even a kid happy.

4-5 chicken breasts cut in small pieces
5-6 rkl/ tblsp Tikka Masala paste (medium)
4 rkl/ tblsp natural yoghurt
Leave for some hours in the fridge, or the whole night.

2 dl/ 0,8 cups heavy cream
5 cm raastettua inkivääriä/ grated ginger

1 tsp brown sugar

Let the sauce cook slowly for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Take out the chicken from the fridge and put it in the oven on the highest level for 5-10 minutes. Pour the chicken in the sauce. Basmati rice and cooked vegetables to go and your lunch or dinner will be just perfect.
