Try Making this Chicken Tikka Masala




I have never tried making Chiken Tikka Masala but this is an easy recipe I 'd like to try. I will perhaps add a few more spices.
This dish has replaced fish and chips in the UK, it has become its national dish. Here is what Wikipedia says-
Chicken tikka masala Hindi: चिकन टिक्का मसाला; Urdu: مرغ تکہ مصالحہ is a curry dish of roasted chicken chunks (tikka) served in a rich-tasting red or orange-coloured sauce. The sauce is usually creamy, lightly spiced and contains tomatoes. The origins of chicken tikka masala are disputed. An Indian expert on street food from Delhi, Rahul Verma, has stated that the dish originated (probably by accident with subsequent improvisations) in Punjab during the last 50 years[1] Another view is that it originated in the first Indian restaurants in Soho, London, during the 1970's.[2] In 2009, a Glasgow MP suggested it should be given EU Protected Geographical Status as a Scottish food. No application for such status was actually made.[3]
Surveys have found chicken tikka masala to be the most popular dish in British restaurants and it has been called "Britain's true national dish."[
