Chicken Tikka Masala is a great dish, however, whilst it has an Indian heritage it was created in the Uk for British tastes, making it the most popular curry across the UK.

Such great feedback, Peter Russell , thank you! I love Chicken Tikka Masala. So interesting to know more about its origins! Delicious. Donna John
On the positive side, this recipe did steer me towards a source of Masala seasoning. On the negative side, its has too much liquid which dilutes the seasoning. I've switched to another recipe that does NOT contain any chicken broth and uses yogurt instead of heavy cream.
