For years it was well known that a chicken tikka massala was the UK's favourite curry dish. For many, it was the perfect blend of spices (with a little bit of heat but not so much that it knocks your socks off!), creamy sauce with chunks of chicken that stolen the hearts of people the length and breadth of the country!
But move over tikka massala... there's a new hot favourite in town!
And can you even guess which one it is?!
Let's do a count down of the top 5...
The Biryani is one of those dishes that just keeps on giving! Not only does it already come with rice, so there's no need to order any as a side dish, but it also comes with its very own vegetable curry which is delicious on its own or indeed with the biryani itself. It's one of the firm favourites at Bay Spice in Hastings with its aromatic spices providing a real tasty treat.
The jalfrezi is a fairly hot curry that's cooked with onion, green pepper, chili & garlic, all blended with a selection of spices. As with most other curries you can select your meat of choice - lamb, chicken, king prawn - or remain vegetarian and then sit back and enjoy!
Again choose your preferred meat and then enjoy the sauce flavoured with garlic, ginger and aromatic spices (cloves, bay leaves, cardamom, and cinnamon). Some restaurants also add onions or yogurt to the dish.
And it comes in at number 2! Knocked off the top spot by...
Yes. It seems the korma has become the nation's favourite curry, and has been since 2018. It seems that here in the UK we prefer the slightly milder curry, and the korma fits the bill. Mild on heat but packed full of flavour the korma is a creamy dish that delights! Served at Bay Spice with a whole range of options you really can choose your absolute favourite. There's chicken, lamb, chicken tikka, prawn, king prawn, vegetable or even their new option: keema (minced meat). You can also choose to add extra garlic, mushrooms or sag.
So there you have it! Which one is your curry dish of choice... do you agree with the top 5?!
Why not head down to Bay Spice and try them all out!
