There's nothing like the robust flavors of Indian curries, and Chef Sati Sharma of Brick Lane Curry House in New York City wants to help you bring the vibrant and developed flavors of India into your kitchen. The restaurateur is sharing his Cornish Hen Tikka Masala recipe, putting a twist on the traditional Indian dish.
Sharma surely brings his mastery of Indian cuisine to the table. Serving Britain-style Indian food, curries of all spice levels can be found in the Brick Lane Curry House dishes, and all are inspired by the curry houses of Brick Lane in London.
Chicken Tikka Masala is traditionally served with small pieces of boneless chicken, but Sharma switches it up and uses the whole Cornish hen. This recipe goes to a new level, pleasing not only your taste buds but your sense of smell and sight.

“I love serving the Cornish hen whole, which allows the meat to develop a deeper flavor and is juicier than smaller pieces of chicken," Sharma says. "The Cornish Hen Tikka Masala is our newest dish at Brick Lane Curry House and has become extremely popular. Our curries are a great way to warm up this winter!"
Wow your palette and that of your guests with this authentic Indian dish. You won’t have to worry about a possible lack of flavor with this one.
