    Random question I know but google search came up with no answers. I ask because I tried a chicken jalfrezi from my local Indian a few weeks back and enjoyed it, however they've now updated their menus and it's called chicken tikka jalfrezi. I don't like tikka sauce so I'm wondering if it's the same thing? I could always call and ask them but don't want to sound like an idiot.

    One has plain chicken cooked in a jalfrezi style. The other has dry chicken pre-cooked in a tikka style (spiced-yoghurt marinated and oven baked chicken) added to the jalfrezi style spices as a replacement to the plain chicken. NB It's only the dry chicken-tikka pieces added to the jalfrezi sauce, leaving out the tikka sauce.

    Chicken Tikka is dry, no sauce.

    Chicken Tikka massalla has yoghurt/chilli/tomato puree (or at least the house variant on this) poured over it

    Chicken tikka jalfrezi will have grilled marinated chicken used in the curry, whereas the chicken jalfrezi will use plain chicken.
