|Chicken Tikka Masala|
National dish of Britain? Debatable. There seems to be more claims that this dish was invented in Britain rather than India. However the name doesn't sound very British. Technicalities aside, this is delicious.
Going through various recipes, I discovered there are two approaches for preparing chicken tikka masala. One approach involves marinating the chicken, grilling it and then dousing in sauce. Sounds great but too much effort. I preferred the second approach, cooking everything together.
I’ve already posted a recipe for butter chicken/murgh makhani. Chicken tikka masala does not seem to be too different, except for the origin of the dish. The recipe is available here.

Too much tea caused tooth loss and other bone problems for a 47-year-old woman. The article didn’t say how much she drank but it was "astronomical amounts" of highly concentrated tea, drank for nearly 20 years. This caused her fluoride levels to spike to more than four times the normal amount. As a result, her bones had become so brittle that her teeth had to be extracted. Her bone density was seven times denser than normal, it was like steel.
The tea addict was prescribed a tea-free diet, and has since recovered.
In the US, brewed tea contains high amounts of fluoride.
This shows that too much of anything, even something healthy, can be harmful.
