Sauce Facts
Tikka Masala is thought to be a British invention, but its true origins are firmly rooted in India as the restaurant favourite, butter chicken.
The chicken itself is normally marinated in a lovely spiced yoghurt base before being cooked to smoky perfection in a searing hot tandoor. It is then shredded and stirred into the masala.
The masala is a harmony of sweet, tart tomatoes and mellow spices, with hints of garlic and ginger. It is loved by all Indians, and is known to be the king of North Indian sauces.
