This recipe has much disputed origins, nobody is quite able to get to the root of where Tikka Masala came from, be it the UK, Bangladesh, Pakistan or India. Whilst it is one of the most popular dishes in Britain, it most certainly is not traditional Western food, nor is it traditionally Southern Asian.

Its warm and spicy tones will rescue any dreary weeknight dinner, so make the paste now for a free pass next week.
