Tikka masala, anyone?

The Oxford English Dictionary and the BBC have teamed up for a wordhunt.

"The OED seeks to find the earliest verifiable usage of every single word in the English language—currently 600,000 in the OED and counting—and of every separate meaning of every word...

"...The fifty words on the OED's BBC Wordhunt appeal list all have a date next to them - corresponding to the earliest evidence the dictionary currently has for that word or phrase. Can you trump that?"

Tikka masala is on the list: "Restaurant menus and reviews start to show chicken tikka masala from 1975, according to the latest research from the OED. Despite the dish's claim to be a great British national dish, the first recorded evidence comes from America. Something wrong here? Or not?"
