If you’ve ever eaten Indian food in a country outside of India, odds are you’ve tried chicken tikka masala. It’s a slightly spicy, slightly sweet and creamy tomato curry with chunks of yogurt-marinated chicken, and if legend is correct, it is about as authentically Indian as 7-11.
Britain has claimed it as it’s true national dish, Glasglow thinks it comes from a tried and true Scottish recipe, and a few believe it originated in Punjab in the 1950s. Authenticity aside, CTM is a delicious dish I couldn’t wait to tackle.
The recipe and food porn a-plenty after the jump.
