CI Chicken Tikka Masala - Lightening it Up

brian874 | Jan 21, 2008 08:58 AM

Hi everyone,

I made the Cook's Illustrated CTM last night and boy, was it FANTASTIC!!!

I was looking for some ways to lighten it up a tad.

I know I could use lowfat yogurt but truthfully, that doesn't save you that much.

Do you think I could safely:
1. Omit the oil from the yogurt coating?
2. Substitute light cream for heavy cream?

What do you think?

I know it won't be as good or as rich, but will it be any less satisfying really?

From a Weight Watchers perspective, that will cut out 13 points from the recipe, or about 3 points/serving...not chump change!

Thanks.
