disputed and argued for many years.
It is commonly believed that it originated from Bangladeshi chefs
situated here in the UK with many establishments claiming its
creation but none of these claims has ever been convincingly
There are many theories about how the dish originated, probably
around the seventies, the late sixties, or even earlier. Some say the
chef tossed together a tomato gravy when someone returned a dry tikka.
The most convincing of these claims is from Glasgow's Shish Maha
restaurant (the first and oldest Indian restaurant in Scotland) and was
recently backed up with a citation on the quirky quiz programme QI on
