Chris has gotten closer than ever to his dream of making ‘proper’ chicken tikka at home thanks to the grills where we live getting up to 600F/315C. If you have a grill and want to try it yourselves:

Having something underneath it caused a different effect, making it closer to what you get in an Indian restaurant in Britain.
