Hand my spice story

Some flavours combinations are classics for a reason. The combination of intense tomato flavour mellowed with a little creaminess and reincarnated in India with some subtle spicing and flavours, is what makes this dish one of Britain’s favourites. It certainly gets our vote at least once a fortnight!

There are rumours that chicken tikka masala came to life when diners asked a local Indian chef for some sauce to go with their tandoori chicken tikka pieces. The chef added a standard tomato masala and some cream and created this delicious new dish. Despite Indian food moving towards regionality over the last 2o years, it remains one of our preferred curries!

Anjum’s Top Tips

Cut the meat, fish/seafood, vegetables or paneer into generous pieces 

If you don't like whole spices,powder these in a pestle and mortar and add them in at the end of step 3, alternatively if left whole remove them with a spoon before serving.

Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan, add the spices and cook for 20 seconds.

Add the meat, prawns or paneer and brown lightly. Add the base sauce and simmering for 1-2 minutes.

Stir in the main sauce and more delicate ingredients (i.e. fish) and bring to boil. Cook for 3-6 minutes or until main ingredient is cooked through.

OUR PERFECT Original Tikka Masala

Use these handy tips to customise your dish:

Delicious with fish, seafood, duck and pork

Also great with paneer, mushrooms and lentils

Marinate skinned chicken thighs in the base sauce, grill for 8 minutes until charred shred or chop up and finish off in the main, sauce for a grat smokey flavour.

Add some green chillies and green peppers for a karahi style dish.

We had your Original Tikka Masala last night and what can I say. It was absolutely delicious!!! I've never had a home cooked curry that tastes so good! Thank you so much for creating such a great product, easy to cook and the best tasting curry I've ever had! You've gained a customer for life!

I bought your Original Tikka Masala this weekend. This stuff is delicious. Even better than my favorite local Indian restaurant. Unlike every other Indian simmer sauce or spice mix for curries, yours is restaurant quality and beats every other brand hands down!
- Aleksie from Australia
We've just enjoyed your Original Tikka Masala for the first time - and WOW! This is the very best home-made tikka meal we have ever tasted - and l can say this in all honesty. I have to give you my praise. You have managed to produce a taste that is perfect!
- Paul from the UK
I can’t get my children to eat meat or veg unless “hidden” in their foods. I constantly have to make a different meal for the kids because they are so fussy. The only meal - other than pasta - that we can eat together is your Original Tikka Masala. It tastes and smells amazing and the kids all love it
- Jodie from Australia
Just tired your Original Tikka Masala. It’s delicious. Genuinely unreal. By far the best ready-made Indian sauce I’ve ever tried - and Tikka Masala is normally my least favourite curry
