Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala is a mouth-watering dish that combines yogurt-marinated chicken and vegetables in a creamy, flavourfully seasoned tomato sauce. Like most curries in Britain, it is typically served over rice and often with naan bread.

There is some debate, but Tikka Masala is commonly believed to have been developed by Indian expatriates living in Glasgow, Scotland. It is considered, by curry enthusiasts, to be the national dish of Great Britain.

Rogan Josh

Rogan Josh is another staple on takeaway menus throughout the United Kingdom. It was brought to the Kashmir region, of Northern India, by the Mughal Empire. Rogan Josh was a Persian term that referred to the technique of cooking in hot oil.

It is a meat dish, usually lamb or chicken, cooked in oil and served in a fragrant, often yogurt based, sauce infused with spices. The dish tends to have moderate heat. The red colour of the sauce may be derived from the use of dried chilis, paprika or tomatoes, depending on the recipe. Interpretations of the dish vary widely.


Korma is a word that refers to a slow cooking method, much like brazing. Because it refers to the preparation, Korma can involve any number of ingredients and is open to interpretation.

The meat is often marinated in yogurt before cooking. The sauce is usually mild, but is always infused with savoury, fragrant spices. The dish may include almonds, cashews, raisins, cream and coconut.

These dishes are common on Indian menus but this article barely scratches the surface of what is available. It’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Outside of Indian restaurants, tourists will find curries on pub menus and see curry sauce drizzled over chips at the neighbourhood fish and chip shop. Everywhere you turn, the British obsession with curry is evident. It’s an exciting cuisine and a delicious addition to anyone’s travel experience in the UK.
