The English-Indian Frozen Dinner
Iceland, a British supermarket chain, recently launched a “meal-for-one” frozen dinner that may make you cringe: Chicken Tikka Yorkshire Pudding.
It’s described on the package as “cooked, diced chicken breast pieces in a tikka masala sauce in a Yorkshire pudding.”
Yorkshire pudding, an English dish, is made from eggs, flour, and milk, and traditionally served with roast meat and gravy. Yorkshire pudding, also known as batter pudding, is also used to make desserts.
Chicken tikka masala is extremely popular in Britain, so it’s perhaps inevitable that it would find its way into other dishes. After all, chicken tikka pizza is already a favorite around the world, and it won’t be long before we see products such as “Stouffer’s Chicken Tikka Lasagna” and “Marie Callender’s Spaghetti with Chicken Tikka Sauce.”
