Before We Get To The Recipe Here Are Some Things To Keep In Mind

From Where Did Tikka Masala Originate? 

The story of how tikka masala originated is as fascinating as the dish itself. Most people strongly believe that the dish originated from the southern part of our country. Others credit the dish to migrant chefs from Britain and Bangladesh. 

There is an intriguing version that states tikka masala actually originated in the kitchen of a hotel all the way in Glasgow, Scotland where chef Ali Ahmed Aslam created the recipe using spices, curd and cream. 

Which Cut Of Mutton To Use When Making Mutton Tikka Masala? 

You want to opt for a cut that is velvety, rich and has some fat left on the pieces. This will prevent the meat from burning and adds flavour to it. Our Goat Boneless is ideal for this dish because it has succulent pieces of meat that come with a moderate to strong flavour. These juicy pieces of meat come trimmed with fat and will add a buttery flavour and silky texture to the curry. 

What Can You Serve Alongside Mutton Tikka Masala? 

If you plan on serving mutton tikka masala, you must first bear in mind that a dish this flavourful will always be the highlight of your dinner table. Chapatis, naans and jeera rice make for the perfect accompaniment because these dishes will not overshadow the mutton tikka. 

Serve this tikka along with some chapati or butter naan. Plate with a pudina based raita, cut onion and lettuce.
