    What the hell this has got to do with Spirituality I don't know, but where's all this anti-British rancour sprung from all of a sudden?

    For your information, only France and Italy have more Michelin starred restaurants than the United Kingdom. It's impossible to get a better curry even in India than in the better quality British outlets. Frankly, the worst aspects of British cuisine are those we've imported from the US - a hamburger can be a thing of beauty and wonder, how the hell do American chains turn them into cardboard with additives?

    Surely there's enough to argue about based purely on all of our ridiculous spiritual beliefs without resorting to ignorant, ill-informed bigotry?

    while i agree with your sentiments, one rarely gets an authentic curry from British
    outlets unless one specifically asks for a staff curry. There is no such thing as a tikka
    masala, its a purely Indian invention for the European market, chicken tikka is in fact a
    portion of chicken , marinaded in spices and cooked dry in a tandoori oven. This is
    compounded by the fact that in a restaurant every curry has the same base
    ingredients and is simply a variation on a theme, add cream and its a korma, add
    mango chutney and tomatoes sauce and its a pataya, etc etc For authentic Indian food
    ones needs to marry an authentic Indian lady 😏


    but yes, what have our American friends given us but blandess!

    There absolutely is such thing as a chicken tikka masala. It's an Indian invention. What an odd thing to seek to do, divesting Indian people of their culinary achievements, their inventiveness and adaptability, and their international impact! 😉

    What makes cooking it in a tandoori oven any different than cooking it
    in a regular oven?

    a tandoori oven is heated with wood and charcoal and thus food cooked in it it has a smoky flavour.

    no, a tandoori oven is closed over and the pieces of chicken are put into on a large
    metal spit, a grill is different and the method itself is different and i think produces a
    different kind of texture. You can also make nan breads in a tandoori oven, which
    itself is quite an art form, for it means literally getting the dough and slapping it to the
    side of the clay oven whilst it is hot.

    Thanks for the info. I guess I never had anything cooked like that then.
