Cafe Spice Chicken Masala at Costco

This Cafe Spice Chicken Tikka Masala is seriously good-not just the chicken masala, but the rice as well.

I recently ate at Chauhan Ale and Masala House in Nashville, a wonderful new restaurant by Maneet Chauhan, and one of the best things was the rice. I kept exclaiming: this rice is great! this rice is great! how do people make this rice? But I was ignored, (maybe because by then we had each had a couple of the fabulous house cocktails). 

Anyway, Cafe Spice rice has the same taste and consistency.

Cafe Spice claims to be restaurant quality, and I agree it is very, very good, better than some of Nashville's Indian restaurants. The tikka masala was so good that, if Costco carries only the tikka masala, I may have to look for other Cafe Spice products in the regular supermarket (shudder).

One package fed two of us.  Spiciness is medium and might be too hot for most children.

I did not see this product today (May 5, 2015) at my local Nashville Costco, hopefully it will be there soon. I was sent the product for review, but wasn't compensated otherwise.

  1. Indian people use basmati rice. The ratio is 1 cup of rice 2 cups of water. A pinch of salt 1tsp ghee.
    Bring to boil. Cover and simmer 15 min. Let rest on stove 5 min
