Bengali Chicken Curry
We Brits love a good saucy curry! Rumour has it that the Chicken Tikka Masala was invented when an English punter in a Glaswegian curry house complained that his Tandoori Chicken was too dry. The disgruntled chef supposedly solved this by pouring a can of tomato soup over the chicken pieces, and garnished it with yoghurt and spices.
If you’re looking for a good curry sauce recipe, you’re in the right place! My recipes take the most popular curry house dishes back to their roots, adding back in traditional flavours that may have been lost in curry house culture.
I love to use a Naan or Chapati as a spoon to scoop up my saucy curries. There’s something so satisfying in assembling these little mini bites of meat, sauce, rice, bread and chutney. Indian food is one of the most sensory cuisines out there and this is definitely the best way to eat it.
