Tikki Masala

my  friend was coming over for lunch and I didn’t have much time to fix something so I threw this in a pot and I was pleasently surprised by how delicious it was!! well I guess I used 2 pots to make some garlic rice- yum my favorite! A family that I ate with on my mission would make this garlic rice that I died over every time! They make it a lot in brazil…so I guess it’s not Indian to go with this dish but you can add garlic to about anything right? The recipe for this delicious garlic rice will be coming soon!!
