Chicken tikka masala Ali Ahmed Aslam, owner of the Shish Mahal curry house in Glasgow, has a strong claim to be the inventor of chicken tikka masala. He created the dish in the mid-70s using a tin of tomato soup to make a spicy gravy when a customer complained that his meal was dry. The rest, as they say, is history.
A SCOTTISH curry house which has claimed credit for cooking the world's first ever chicken tikka masala has been recommended as the best place on earth to try the dish. The Shish Mahal in Glasgow has been named in Lonely Planet's new book The World's Best Spicy Food, as the best place on earth to eat chicken tikka masala
