Choose your heating method
Our favorite method for this dish is the microwave.
- Stovetop | 5–6 minutes
Transfer the rice pilaf to a small sauce pot and stir to break apart. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons water, cover, and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes, until heated through. While the rice pilaf is cooking, transfer the tikka masala to another small sauce pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes, until heated through.
- Microwave oven | 9–11 minutes
Remove the plastic from the tray of tikka masala. Transfer the rice pilaf to a microwave-safe dish and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons water. Place a damp paper towel over the tikka masala and the rice pilaf. Microwave the tikka masala for 5 minutes. Stir the tikka masala, re-cover, and microwave both the tikka masala and the rice pilaf 4 to 6 minutes more, or until heated through.
- Conventional oven | 25–30 minutes
Heat the oven to 425°F. Remove the plastic from the tray of tikka masala. Transfer the rice pilaf to an ovenproof dish and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons water. Cover the tray and the dish with foil and bake both for 15 minutes. Stir the tikka masala, re-cover, and bake both the tikka masala and the rice pilaf for 10 to 15 minutes more, or until heated through.
Season the tikka masala to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the rice pilaf to individual plates or bowls, top with the tikka masala, and serve.
