Spicy Tofu Tikka Masala

So this Tofu tikka masala was made two months back, I think it was something we were celebrating, I don’t remember exactly but we did have a wonderful feast. I made the naan on the stove top but as here we don’t have the open flame cookers, they did not turn out as good as they should be.

I don’t normally make it often as it is kind of like a festive dish or you can say a little time-consuming. But let me tell you all the time and effort you put into the dish are all worth it when you get to taste it with some hot garlic naan.
