We challenged resident Bon Appétit super taster Chris Morocco to recreate Madhur Jaffrey's chicken tikka masala recipe using every sense he has other than sight. Was he up to the challenge? As a bonus, we're joined by the legend herself, Madhur, to review Chris's reverse engineered dish.

i feel chris was more authentic to the recipe than madhur. She used olive oil(you indian woman, use ghee!) and some spices like mustard and fenugreek.

When Mrs Jaffrey said "your chicken's texture is better" my eyes nearly popped out. that's a class move if somebody is meant to replicate your dish to just flatout say that something is better. I like that lady. But better is not the same, ain't it. And what I really like is, that she explains what the purpose of the things are chris did "wrong" or different. like that hing is a digestive originally. Does she have a youtube channel? Like we had cooking in school and it would not have been the most hated subject after maths, if Mrs. Jaffrey was the teacher.

Chris: “I’m not an expert in this field.” Also Chris: "There might be oil in it. But let me fix that for you - we use Ghee. Also a bit of Asafoetida should do the trick - boom, made it even better"

This guy is amazing!... Time after time he comes SO close to getting it exactly. here, with the MANY ingredients of Tikka Masala (which he guesses correctly as the dish even before going shopping), he shows really impressive know-how and pretty amazing faculty of taste and smell. I do find it odd that, in his first blind investigation, he smelled cardamom, because unless there is some cardamom in the Garam Masala (certain versions of GM do have cardamom), Tikka Masala usually never has cardamom. But how he got the ginger and garlic in the yogurt marinade is beyond me!

Good for you Chris. Not even kidding. To have someone give you a 92% about a meal that they have made millions of times and James actually ate in her house.... Unreal. I'd lose my mind. What a special episode. Smiled for your prowess like I smile for Brad, in a different way, haha. But seriously.. Amazing.

Just a tip for Chris as an Indian, maybe for future recipes - if there's onion in the dish, there's usually no asafoetida.
