Nouveau produit: Le Kit Tikka Masala

Just in time for Christmas we are launching our new kit. Tikka Masala. The restaurant classic can now be made and enjoyed at home with ease. Follow the step by step instructions for a perfectly scrumptious curry. The combination of tandoori spice marinated meat or fish and the mild creamy tomato based sauce is a modern classic,  once tasted an immediate delight.
