Tikka masala is a curry dish chunks (tikka) of chicken or meat in a spicy masala sauce. The sauce is usually creamy, spiced and orange-coloured.  Tikka masala has been found to be the most popular dish in British restaurants and it has been called "a true British national dish”.

Rahul Verma, an Indian expert on street food from Delhi, has stated that the dish originated, probably by accident with subsequent improvisations, in Punjab during the last 50 years.

There are also claims that a Pakistani chef Ali Ahmed Aslam, proprietor of the Shish Mahal restaurant in Park Road in the west end of the city in Glasgow invented it by improvising a sauce made from yogurt, cream and spices.  In 2009 Pakistani-born British MP Mohammad Sarwar tabled a motion in the House of Commons asking that Parliament support a campaign for Glasgow to be given European Union Protected Designation of Origin status for chicken tikka masala.  Others lay claim to the origin being Birmingham and Newcastle. Some people have drawn comparisons between chicken tikka masala and butter chicken, another Indian dish including chicken and gravy which was probably invented in Northern India.

  The article below is courtesy of The Antigua Curry Club Ken Veronda, from his filed trip to Scotland to investigate the claim.

(also spelled or Daal, or Dhal) is a preparation of dried lentils, peas or beans which have been stripped of their outer hulls and split. It also refers to the thick stew prepared from these, a mainstay of Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, and Bangladeshi cuisine. It is regularly eaten with rice and vegetables and a flat bread. Dal is a ready source of proteins for a balanced diet containing little or no meat.
