I really want to make murgh makhani (aka butter chicken). There are a few other Indian dishes I'd like to try my hand at as well, but it is best to try to tackle one dish at a time.

But what do you need to make such a dish? Spices I don't typically stock. Namely, tandoori masala and garam masala.

So after receiving some awesome direction from awesome twitter people, I headed out today after work to India Town. The guy there was very helpful, pointed me in the right direction, and had a super tasty smelling store (it is probably the restaurant next door).

I picked up a few spices and off I went. My intent was to get something started tonight for a tasty dinner tomorrow, but as soon as I got home I couldn't find the original recipe I'd found and there are a ton of variations with all kinds of other requirements.

I think I need another trip to the grocery store.

Anyway, in the rush of the day I only took a kind of crappy photo of India House. Its more awesome than those white bottles let on, I promise.
