Probably one of the most well-known and well-loved Indian dishes, Chicken Tikka Masala has a lovely blend of tomatoes with creamy coconut milk. Ballymaloe Relish adds an extra layer to the dish, with our carefully-balanced blend of tomatoes and specially-selected spices. Mild yet moreish, a Chicken Tikka Masala is also a great way to introduce children to the wonders of fusion food!
