Britain's favourite dish-Chicken tikka masala- is all set to turn sixty this month.
The dish was first made at a restaurant in New Delhi in October 1947.
The owner made the first industrial version of the tandoor Indian stove and prepared a type of butter chicken that became famous as tikka masala, reports the Sun
After the dish became an instant hit in Indian eat outs, the food came to Britain in the fifties.
Tikka masala was officially declared UK's No 1 meal in 2001.
