This is the official first chapter in the Cameron Neibaur family. Family members include myself and my husband Cam. We have been married for about a month and we just moved to Salt Lake City, UT. Being from a small town, scouting around the city is amazing. It's hard to navigate without my GPS on, but I can make it to WalMart successfully now without any help. We moved from Logan and can I say that I feel SO sad we can't be by my favorite restaurant Tandoori Oven. Located in Logan, it's a small gas station/restaurant. Don't let the exterior fool you. Inside there is a small piece of India. The colors are vibrant and rich, the waitstaff kind and pleasant. The food... oh the food alone is worth the trip! My FAVORITE ever is the Chicken Tikka Masala served with basmati rice and a piping hot piece of garlic naan. Wowee! What a treat. The tikka masala is rich with a tomato cream sauce and sauteed peppers and onions. The chicken is cooked to perfection with traditional exotic Indian spices and the flavor is packed in each bite.
Now this leads you to the nostalgic part, my first attempt to bring this dish from the past, to the present in my tummy. Did I mention that Cam and I went there at least once a week? Today I will attempt to make my own homemade garlic naan and Chicken Tikka Masala. Forewarning you that we are newly weds and on a budget, I've tried to make this work. If my dinner is successful, I will post my recipes and notes to share with the world, because hey, who wouldn't want to take a trip to India and get to stay in the comfort of your own home?
