Try our Curries – A Great Tasting Frozen Ready Meal

Popular Cooked Meals.

October 9th – 15th is the chance to celebrate one of the UK’s favourite cooked meals – no not roast dinners – curry! Curry is now so popular in Great Britain it contributes more than £5 billion to the British economy. In 2001 the then foreign secretary referred to Chicken Tikka Masala as a ‘true British dish’. Although apparently currently the Korma is the most popular British curry.

At the moment more people are turning to home delivery. So, if you or a loved one are worrying about venturing out with the new Covid restrictions – don’t worry. We can deliver great frozen ready meals to your door – including curries.

Here are a few facts about the Great British Curry!

According to a survey by a well-known British high street supermarket. An approximate £30,000 is spent by an individual on curry during their lifetime.

Estimates suggest that there are 10,000 curry houses in Britain – accounting for two thirds of our takeaway restaurants!

The first curry house in Britain was called Hindoostance Coffee House, which opened in London in 1810. Londoners are now such big fans of curry there is believed to be more curry houses in London than there are in Mumbai, India.

Curries can be very healthy and some spices could even have medicinal properties. It’s believed that the yellow spice Turmeric, as well as adding flavour and colour to curries, can also help ease stiffness, pain and inflammation associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  

 

Chicken Curry.

Most of our curry ready meals contain chicken. This is not because we have a bias but it does tend to be one of the more popular styles. There is the deliciously cream Chicken Korma, with a hint of fruit and some toasted almonds to give it some crunch. Then there is the highly popular Butter Chicken Curry – this is still mild and creamy, but the spices are stronger than the Korma. Apparently, this  dish was made “by chance” by mixing leftover chicken in a tomato gravy, rich in butter and cream. As with many curries they have become Anglicised over the years but we like to think that our curries do have an authentic taste to them.

As well as the milder curries we do a Chicken Tikka Masala. This is a slightly spicier meal and is low in salt and sugar, which means it is a good choice for those looking for a healthier option. Our last chicken curry is the hot and spicy Thai Red Chicken Curry. This curry is full of delicious flavours that linger on your tongue. It is also dairy free and like all our other chicken curries it is wheat free.

Other Curries.

For the vegetarians we have Potato and Cauliflower Curry, this is a one pot dish as it doesn’t come with rice. Our final curry Lamb Curry, quite rich and slightly spices and smells divine!!
