This is my absolute favorite Indian dish - be it authentic or not.
I actually had versions in Mumbai and Goa (and Dubai) and they were all fantastic. In general the mix of spices used in India is more interesting and has more of a bold, fresh taste.
Anyone know of a good spot for this in Chicago proper?
I've been to Tiffin on Devon, which the hounds have recommended before. I didn't like the Tikka Masala - it was very thin and a little on the bland side (it tastes like the dish that is sometimes referred to as Butter Chicken)
Also, I've seen Kababish of London recommended for Desi food. Has anyone tried it (or is it even available) there? No website yet.
