Grilled Cheese Tikka Masala- Quickie Lunch!


2 slices of hearty white bread (I use Pepperidge Farm)
1/4 of a small onion- cut into rainbow strips
2 teaspoons Tikka Masala paste (I use Patak’s Brand)


Spray skillet with PAM and set on medium-low heat. Add sliced onions and black pepper. Saute until translucent and soft.
Spray one side of each slice of bread with PAM. On the un-sprayed side put a thin layer of tikka paste on each slice. Place 1 slice of cheese on each side. After the onions are finished, place on only one side of the bread. Put the other side over to make a sandwich.
Spray your skillet again, and place on medium-low heat. Place the sandwich carefully, and toast until the cheese is melted, flipping only once. Each side should have a nice golden brown color.
Serve with reduced-fat kettle cooked chips and a coke zero, and you have yourself a healthy and hearty meal!




Got a few minutes for lunch but don’t know what to make? Try my Indian take on a classic American sandwich- Grilled Cheese. It’s fast, CHEAP and oo soo satisfying!
America is a melting pot full of different cultures, ethnicities, foods, religions, people- you name it! The Indian population is growing rapidly, so much so that Indian ingredients AND products are available at my local Stop & Shop grocery store! I feel that everyones life can use a little but more spice, and by adding the tikka masala to this American classic, is a symbol of how Indians are integrating their culture and traditions into the American lifestyle. Give it a try, let me know what you think!
