It is also said that the dish presented to the customer was inspired by the common north Indian dish butter chicken. According to some, they have also observed, chicken tikka masala is the earliest well-recognized example of fusion cooking. In Britain, this dish has gained a major cultural significance, and one of the British cooks praised chicken tikka as a representation of modern multicultural Britain.
Later on, he also explained that Chicken Tikka is an Indian dish and the masala sauce was added to fulfill British people’s appetite for their meat to be served with gravy.
Sub-continental cuisines have a different image in the vision of food historians because these cuisines are so rich and full of historical events that these food historians and researchers cannot stop themselves from knowing more about them.
When the origin of chicken tikka was researched, it appeared that this dish again belongs to the only rich in-cultural and traditional country India. As this dish was discovered during the times of the Mughal era. Tandoor oven-roasted chicken is the foundation of chicken tikka masala’s rich flavors. Over 5,000 years ago, the tandoor oven was invented, while the tikka dates even farther back to the 16th century.
The story goes that Babur, the first emperor of the Mughal empire believed that eating chicken carried a risk of death,. since one could eat the bones and die. So instead of using complete chicken parts, boneless, bite-sized pieces of chicken were marinated in yogurt and curry seasoning, placed on metal skewers, and grilled in the tandoor.
And from that time, not just the Mughal emperor but all the classes of the Mughal empire loved eating chicken tikka and now it is one of the most common and favorite desi snacks that has taken many names and shapes such as chicken tikka wrap, chicken tikka naan wrap, chicken tikka paratha roll and much more.
