Britain's National Dish? Tikka Masala?

Jump to last reply

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_tikka_masala

Went out to an Indian restaurant last night and on the menu was what it said was "Britain's national dish" - Tandoori Tikka Masal - a dish supposedly created for British tastes by Bangladeshi or Indian cooks.

The menu also said that there was no tea in India before the British took over.

But back to Britain's national dish - tikka masal - REALLY!

I would have thunk it were Yorkshire Pud or Fish and Chips or Spag Bol - is there any such thing considered Britain's national dish - is it really Tikka Masala?
