The Curry House Indian restaurant style recipes  

chicken tikka masala
Chicken tikka masala is the all time most popular dish on the Indian restaurant menu. It is widely credited as being the invention of British Asian restaurateurs but, without a traditional recipe to fall back on, each restaurant tends to have its own style for the masala sauce. So what the restaurant diner really needs to know is whether the restaurant is providing a good example of the dish. And what is a good example? Well, the chicken tikka pieces should be aromatic and slightly smoky from the tandoor. The masala sauce should be well spiced but not hot, rich and creamy and have a hint of coconut. Tikka masala usually has a bright red colour, gained from the use of artificial food colouring.
