This Little Pig has been introduced to the most wonderful human and her name is Shaheen. Shaheen is the brains behind “Spice Mama”, a local business that sells the most glorious spice mixes this world has seen. As the weather heated up this week, This Little Pig rolled up its sleeves to try its trotters at Spice Mama’s Chicken Tikka…and lets just say…mind blown.
Now although this fine swine was confident it would be delicious, it was blown away by the incredible taste of the dish and was left dazed and confused with spices smeared on its snout and the whole dish completely devoured in minutes. So piglets, don’t hesitate and think “oh I’ll just Google how to make a spice mix for this chicken tikka instead of buying a whole packet online from Spice Mama”. No, no, no, don’t reinvent the wheel. Just jump aboard spice mama’s bandwagon HERE & support an amazing local business. Pop online and buy her beautifully packaged spices and follow the perfect ingredients and recipes she has listed. This one is ideal for an entrée amongst friends over summer. Oink.
