    I picked up a package of refrigerated chicken tikka masala at Trader Joe's, and it was pretty good. Anyone have a good recipe for making this at home? It would be great to have for lunches at work.

    Hi Peachesncream,

    I did use ghee, which I got in a small jar from Trader Joe's. It is clarified butter. I think olive oil would work well, too.
