There nothing better than sitting round the table with loved ones and all enjoying one of the nation's favourite dishes. With a wonderful selection of dishes including a Korma, Madras, Jalfrezi, Vindaloo and many more, we don't need much persuasion to indulge in a sneaky takeaway or meal out!
National Curry Week involves curry restaurants, caterers and curry lovers across the UK celebrating the dish with diners, record breaking attempts, raffles, auctions and all manner of events designed to help combat poverty across the South Asian continent and worldwide.
With such a massive selection of spices and dishes just make sure you're near a jug of or milk! Why not try something new off the menu and really set those taste buds alight? Lets face it, with the amount of dishes on the menu in any curry house you could use National Curry week as an excuse to try a new curry recipe every day of the week!
Dishes can be made with chicken, lamb, beef, fish and vegetables. They can come from a wide range of countries and each region has different tastes, but not all curries are super hot and spicy. Some can be as simple as making a roast dinner. Choose your meat add some main vegetables such as tomatoes, onion, garlic and some spices and bobs your uncle!
Curry is so delicious and it can be very aromatic. It can also be used as the food of love (Date night!). It can have great health effects on your bodies and is even a brilliant way to induce babies (so they say!!).
If you're one of those people who are terrified at the very thought of a curry, mainly because you think it is going to be so spicy it is going to burn your mouth or that you will end up on the loo for many an hour the next day, why not use the opportunity to dispel your fears and seek advice on the best dish to suit your individual tastes.
As for the curry lovers among you, make sure you attempt many of the side dishes to accompany your meal from naan bread, chutney, poppadums and rice to name a few and you can always wash it all down with Cobra beer!
