Shropshire Lad's Tandoori chicken tikka masala

In stock


Shropshire Lad is a self-taught chef cooking fantastic dishes, which you can check out on his YouTube channel here. The Chicken Tikka Masala is without doubt the most popular curry in the UK, and hailed by some as our National Dish. The brilliant smoky charred flavour of the chicken cooked in a tandoor combined with the tangy, creamy tomato based masala sauce is an absolute winning combination. It really is such a delicious dish, and surprisingly easy to make yourself with spectacular results and without the added colourings and tonne of ghee you are likely to get in a takeaway version. If you don’t have access to a tandoor, the chicken could simply be cooked on a barbeque, or even under the grill.

Our kit serves 4 and costs £1.75, and you can check out the recipe here
