        Aurelio, hope you try it. You can certainly pair it with tortillas which are very much like Indian bread.

        Looks like even I can make this. Can't wait to try this with some tortillas, which I know isn't Indian but it's the only "bread" I have in the house at the moment.

        Thank you! This is a very timely recipe Rajan. We had Salmon tikka the other night from a takeout restaurant and it came with a tomato gravy. I am going to try to recreate that dish at home using your gravy recipe...of course, I don't have a tandoor :-)

        I like this recipe. The captions in the video made the recipe easy to follow, and even without the captions, the video showed each step very clearly. Excellent.

        We usually keep cottage cheese in the house but I never would have thought to flavor it like this. It really sounds good! Thanks for your recipe.
