I love to have it with roti. I have prepared it couple of times but addition of chickpeas totally new. next time, will try this too.

Curries are notorious for lengthy ingredient lists to achieve the richly spiced sauces and punchy flavours. And while we’d all love to be able to whip up a from-scratch Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken whenever the craving hits us, it's not easy. Curry Fayre
