Specially marinated creamy paneer cooked in a classic tikka masala sauce served with pilau rice

Chef Cooked. No Artificial Additives. Vegetarian. 

A delectable culinary wonder, The Tikka Masala is considered British-Indian cuisine’s most famous creation. There’s many myths associated with its origin, the most famous being that in 1970 a Glasgow-Pakistani chef named Ali Ahmed Aslam added a touch of tomato soup and a sprinkling of spices to some tandoori chicken skewers that a customer complained were too dry. Perhaps it’s only a story, and in any case Indian cooking’s focus on spontaneous improvisation means that there will never be a definitive, original recipe.Though most famously made with chicken, our vegetarian take on the dish is equally as delicious. Our buttery, melt-in-the-mouth paneer acts as a blank canvas for the creamy, vibrant sauce infused with dynamic, Indian spices.
