Creamy Pumpkin Tikka Masala

Warm, fragrant, spicy sauce covering morsels of tender lamb. Some will say traditional tikka isn’t really Indian. True and false. Tikka masala has all the makings of Indian cuisine with creamy tomato, thick yogurt, and aromatic garam masala spice, but it really evolved somewhere in Britain-ish. Substitute tomato sauce for pumpkin and you have a spicy fall dish that will satiate your Indian food craving and pumpkin obsession. Which really is just a love for a versatile vegetable. Think of this as another food evolution.
