Well, there seemed to be a general consensus that if England had a "national food" it would tiki marsala...


Tikka Masala and Chips. (You call them "fries")

Alrighty, here's how it turned out. I'm glad I have a rice cooker, makes making rice brainless.



There was a ton of sauce, I kind of forgot to spoon more over the chicken before I put the chopped cilantro on top. I had a hungry customer waiting on her dinner!

a reply to: MystikMushroom looks pretty good, you need some naan bread and lime pickle just for extra authenticity, but good effort

Have you tried cooking rice in the slow cooker? It comes out very nice, but it takes ages. (1Hr 40 minutes)

I didn't think about the naan...they sell garlic naan at the grocery store bakery. Maybe I'll freeze the left overs and have it with some naan for lunch next week!

W-w-what's a lime pickle?

That's a good idea. Lime pickle is a spicy pickle that goes great with curry and popadoms. I love the stuff, an essential addition to my curry. I wouldn't have a clue how to make the stuff

Chicken Tikka Massala was invented in Glasgow, Scotland.

No matter. It's yummy.

I'll try that recipe, I love Tikka Masala!
Though I really wish I could get some Major Grey's Mango Chutney to go with it.

this is the first time I thought about ordering it online instead of whining.
I'm off to work on it!

What people do not know is the British actually invented curry while ruling over India and the Indians adopted it as their national food thus making folk believe they invented curry.
In fact you will find the British have invented most things.



Mushy peas!! I like minty mushy peas also.

Ah, yes. You gave us the enthralling game of Footie where we can be captivated by a thrilling score of nil to nil spread over the course of two leisurely hours.

Thank you Brits, thank you very much.

And then the Americans basterdised it and started playing football with their hands....Just like girls games rounders (Baseball at least our boring game only lasts 90 mins
) and netball (Basketball).

Personally, I would most likely pass on calling a 300lb dude who can run the 40 in less than 5 seconds a chick.

It could prove detrimental to my constitution.

I believe the popularity of "mushy peas" comes from the fact that the peas served in fish-and-chip shops were necessarily overcooked. There's no need to buy them specially. Just put a saucepan of peas on the stove and forget about them for a while.

P.S. Yes, I have a "stoneware" crockpot, Prestige brand, inherited from my parents' house.

The H.P. Sauce you purchased is i am afraid not " The Real Stuff"

H.P. sauce was invented in 1895, and was produced in Aston Birmingham. Heinz acquired the brand and in 2006 production was moved to The Netherlands.

The sauce they produce there is nothing like the real one. In fact it's rank in comparison. Another great British institution sold down the river.

Thank your friendly government Food Nazis.


Since 2011 HP sauce has been manufactured with a new reduced sodium recipe 0.8 g per 100 ml. The traditional recipe was 1.2 g sodium per 100 ml. This was a direct result of Government policy with regard to salt levels in food. Consumers report that the taste is now more sour or even tastes "off", which has led to complaints to Heinz.

Well I was harsh on the mushy peas.

With the right condiments and main course it's pretty sweet.




HP over ketchup all day though.

If I have a Fry Up, brown sauce is what serves up a better meal.

And there is nothing better than a Full English breakfast.




Right Oh! A Full English Breakfast!

Lets wait till our American friends realise we smoke fags and eat faggots and the gay crowd over here doesn't even bat an eyelid


It seems like us brits like more sauce which is probably why it got invented, its like the bhaji in india its made using many ingredients but once they came over here they just used onions as it was so cheap.
