It's such a delight to see Rodney now devouring his food with gusto instead of stabbing it murderously with his fork.

CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA - Britain's true national dish. Yep, it's not Fish & Chips!
Hubby and the boys were fighting over the last piece of naan to sop up the buttery gravy!! Mmmmm! But my Indian cousin-in-law insisted my Chicken Tikka Masala tasted more like Murgh Makhani (Butter Chicken)!
Whatever it was, it was heavenly! Apparently, there's a story behind this famous dish that is loved the world over.
It is thought that butter chicken was hastily prepared by a Delhi eatery chef post dinner time for a harried VIP customer who wanted "some" chicken dish. A chef named Simon Mahli Chahal first prepared this when he only had half of a Tandoori chicken which he tossed with liberal amounts of butter, tomato, and garam masalas to improvise for an delicious delicacy he was supposed to make for the ruler of Mareelun. He forgot to buy enough ingredients so he ended up with this dish!
