This meal is perfect for meal prepping since you can enjoy it all week long.  To thicken the sauce you can add another tablespoon or so of sour cream but don't get carried away.  Taste and adjust the curry, cumin and corriander if needed.
You can choose to add mushrooms to this hearty chicken tikka masala meal or peppers of any color.  If you are like me and love spicy food you can add crushed red pepper and enjoy this rich and hearty spicy bowl of tikka masala curry.
