The Ideal Cozy Meal: Tikka Masala

While many Tikka Masla enthusiasts enjoy the meal in the company of others, the dish is also best devoured in the comfort of one’s home. With its freshly roasted spices and creamy tomato sauce, Tikka Masla is the ideal cozy meal. Whether you prefer yours with chicken, shrimp, or paneer, here are some additional things you may not already know about the Tandur-favorite food.

  • Tikka Masala is one of the most popular Indian meals, but it seems the beloved dish originated in the United Kingdom and is declared the unofficial dish of England.
  • The word ‘Tikka’ means bits or pieces of marinated meat while ‘Masala’ means a mixture of spices; thus, Tikka Masala was born.
  • The fragrant meal fuses spices, such as Coriander, Paprika, Tumeric, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Cinnamon, and Cumin, to create a delicious blend of flavor. The dish also incorporates fenugreek leaves and a tomato cream sauce, creating the infamous orange color.
