Easy Meatball Tikka Masala

A classic Indian dish loved by families, this easy meatball tikka marsala is a perfect dish for camping.

For quick and easy preparation there is a wide range of pre-prepared meatballs available or you can use leftovers from a batch you made or make a batch specifically for this recipe.

Unlike the cliche perception of curries, many are not hot, this recipe is an example of this, with it being spicy as in a wide range of spice flavors, yet no heat and a sweet undertone. Partners well with simple rice preparations and Indian flatbreads.
