The UK's most popular Indian dish, Tikka Masala was created in the UK. The Aagrah Foods Tikka Masala cooking sauce recipe lets you stick to the traditional method of making this dish - by first grilling the chicken. The dish consists of grilled chunks of chicken cooked in a creamy, spicy sauce.



Take 2 dessert spoons of the sauce and marinade 400g of your chosen meat/vegetables. Refrigerate for at least an hour or ideally overnight. Grill the meat/veg under a medium heat until thoroughly cooked. In a pan, empty the remaining contents, add 125ml water to the jar, replace the lid, swirl and add to the pan. Stir in 40g of cream (optional, add more for a creamier dish) and bring to the boil with the lid on. Add your grilled meat/vegetables and stir through until cooked and sauce reaches a desired consistency. Serve with rice, naan bread or chappati's - exquisite!

Aagrah Tikka Masala Cooking Sauces - 270g

  • Our story starts in 1977 when Mohammed Sabir opened the first Aagrah in the small Yorkshire town of Shipley. His idea was simple; to recreate the food cooked in the home and in the villages in his native Kashmir. 

    The Executive Chef

    As the family grew, the business grew and Sabir's brothers Aslam and Iqbal helped to take the business from strength to strength. A notable achievement was Aslam winning the "International Indian Chef of the Year" award in 1996. 

    Award Winning Success

    The business grew to become one of the largest chain of Indian restaurants in the UK; with delicious recipes at the heart of our success. Both Sabir and Aslam received MBE's for charitable services and services to the catering industry. Aslam also received a lifetime achievement award at the British Curry Awards in 2013.

    The birth of Tarka Cooking Sauces

    In 2011 we launched our Tarka Cooking Sauce range; our most popular recipes as favoured by thousands of loyal customers over the years. These sauces take us back to the roots of the Aagrah vision - allowing you to create scrumptious Kashmiri "home-style" dishes in your own home.

  • After a year of searching, we have finally found a stunning and traditional range of Kashmiri sauces. 

    Developed by multi-award winning chef's Sabir and Aslam, each sauce delivers a unique and powerful punch of flavour and just the right amount of heat.

    ​Each sauce is created using the traditional technique of tarka, a process that involves adding the spices to very hot oil in order to achieve an intense aroma and flavour. 

    ​These sauces will remind you of just how good Indian food can be (and how average high street sauces are)!

    And yes, we do think these sauces are priced too low!
