Compiled by Darasbir

They say that now Chicken Tikka Masala has become the national dish of Britain, so popular is this dish nowadays. I think, this dish is the westernized version of butter chicken, which is so very popular in Punjab , the northern province of India and Delhi, the capital city of India. This dish can be described as chicken cubes barbequed in Indian earthen oven and served with a tomato sauce cooked with herbs and spices.
