Sorry if I'm being too lazy to search through past forums here...

I saw a recipe for Tempeh Tikka Masala http://www.freepantsonline.com/?p=1202 but its not vegan.
it looks yummy and i certainly haven't had tikka masala in a long time so I thought i'd give it a shot.
I was going to just switch things out with what I had (earth balance for ghee, silk for heavy cream, tofu for tempeh because i just don't like tempeh) but thought i'd see if there was another recipe out there that everyone loves. I don't want to end up with a watery curry from not using heavy cream or something (and would rather not buy a silk creamer if it can be tasty without it). I'm not very good at this customizing recipe thing....
does Isa have a recipe in one of her books? I didn't check but I dont remember seeing one. What recipes do you use?

i've never had this before, but you could just make a thick cream with cashews or coconut milk?

I would try a cashew cream. Silk is pretty sweet. I don't even bother sweetening my coffee when I use that stuff.

i use a veganized version of this recipe, subbing soy yoghurt and either full-fat coconut milk or cashew cream made from 1/2 cup of cashews. (also i use seitan but i am sure tofu would be nice, too). http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/chic ... kka-masala

I would def make cashew cream. Ever since silk changed their recipe even the unsweetened tastes vanilla-isj and has a sweetness. Cashew cream will thicken up nicely.

I wonder if a nut based cream cheese such as Parmela would work?

I use the Tofu Tikki Masala recipe from Happivore (the author of which is on this forum.) I would suggest halving (or even just using 1/4) the amount of tofu, adding some fresh veg, and serving over rice. Mine also turned out to be very hot but I did use a different pepper and I'm unsure how the spiciness of the peppers I used compare to the spiciness of the peppers he used. So I would add a bit of pepper, blend, and taste until I got the desired hotness level.

edit: I forgot the link http://www.happivore.com/recipe/tofu-tikka-masala/
