Are you a foodie, and do you love to try all different types of ethnic food? In the small town that I live in there are not too many restaurants with ethic foods. We basically have a fast food burger place, two Mexican restaurants, and a few coffee shop type restaurants that serve basically sandwiches, burgers and breakfast food.

So, I was excited about the offer to try some Indian cuisine from Tandoor Chef. Tandoor Chef has a very large variety of food, everything from appetizers, breads, entrees, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free meals. My local Safeway store only had a small sampling of Tandoor Chef items, but I noticed you can order most of their items on Amazon.com (with really competitive prices).
I was able to pick up three different Tandoor Chef entrees, including Chicken Tikki Masala, Chicken Curry and Chicken Tandoori with Spinach. All 3 varieties are found in the frozen food section and cook in about 5 minutes or less.
My definite favorite of the 3 was the Chicken Tikki Masala. The sauce was spicy, but not hot, and was nice and thick. The basmati rice cooked up light and fluffy, not sticky at all. If you haven't tried basmati rice before, you will love the taste and the texture of this rice. It has a nice grainy flavor, but smooth texture. As you can tell by my empty plate, I loved the Chicken Tikki Masala!

I'm still on the hunt for the Masala Dosa from Tandoor Chef. These are crepes stuffed with spiced potatoes and sautéed onions. This sounds amazing! The Tandoor Chef Tandoori Chicken Wings sound like a great snack for the upcoming football season, and their varieties of Samosa (crispy pockets filled with meat and/or vegetables) look really appetizing!
Tandoor Chef even has a tab with glossary on ingredients, so you know what tastes you are experiencing, as well as a drink pairing tab to let you know what beverage goes best with your entree or appetizer. Tandoor Chef also carries some yummy vegan and vegetarian entrees, including noodles and burgers! Tandoor Chef also has gluten free offerings for those with dietary restrictions for gluten.
Awaken your palate with the great taste of India from Tandoor Chef!
