A newspaper article a couple of years ago announced that the national dish of the UK was chicken tikka masala but I think that was a little tongue in cheek.
Tongue in cheek? Not at all! Chicken Tikka Masala
originated in Glasgow and these days is universally agreed to be Britain's favourite dish. If you haven't reached Britain yet in your cooking quest, you could cover Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland with a single dish, but you'd better hurry because Britain is currently coming apart at the seams with their Brexit vote.
(Do you find it odd that the recipe originated in Glasgow? There's an entire class of Subcontinental cooking called Balti
that originated in Pakistan, but thrived so well in Birmingham and Manchester that it has been exported back to India/Pakistan and is all the rage.)
