Celebrate National Curry Week!

Did you know that National Curry Week is fast approaching?  

This year’s events run from 10th to 16th October.  National Curry Week originated in 1998 and aims to promote curry while raising funds for various charities concerned primarily with battling hunger, poverty and malnutrition.

During the week people are encouraged to visit their local curry houses or partake of the dish at home, whilst engaging with fun challenges and events, and making donations.  Asda have been announced as the lead sponsor and official retailer for the 2016 campaign.

Events arranged include a world record attempt at constructing a tower of poppadums, samosa and poppadum speed eating contests and the Great British Curry Quiz

Some people are so excited by the idea that they challenge themselves to eat a different type of curry each day!  While that won’t suit everyone, I would encourage you to take the opportunity to try a new dish – you might surprise yourself!

For some of the best Indian food in Gloucester, give us a call on 01452 300615 or explore our extensive take away and eat in menus at

The Vegetarian Option!

I am especially proud of the diversity of the vegetarian dishes we offer on our menu.

There has always been a wide variety of vegetarian dishes in India and trade over the centuries encouraged this to increase.  It was only when the Portuguese came, for example, that potatoes and chillies were added to our culinary repertoires. 

Here are just a few of the vegetarian specialities we offer:  

•Madras Vegetable Smaba – this comprises a selection of mixed vegetables cooked with lentils, fenugreek, coriander and a selection of spices.  It is sweet and sour and fairly hot to taste.

•Shabji Jafroni – a much milder dish, this features mixed vegetables cooked in Chef’s own special sauce, an enticing blend of spices, almond and lemon.  It does contain nuts.

•Aloo Begun Balti – a delightful mix of aubergines and potatoes cooked in Chef’s selection of fresh herbs and Balti spices.  Served up for you in a Balti dish.

•Shobji Bhar Poneer – at the request of our customers we use Cheddar cheese rather than the traditional Indian Poneer cheese.  Mixed vegetables are cooked together with fresh herbs, spices and the cheese.

•Shobji Bhar Tatul – the vegetables are cooked in a tasty chilli and tamarind sauce, together with onions, peppers and pickled chilli.  The result is a sweet and sour delight.  

We don’t just serve vegetarian dishes, of course.  You can explore our extensive take away and eat in menus at or give us a call on 01452 300615.

Bhindi It Like Beckham!

An Indian restaurant in the Longsight district of Manchester was recently surprised by a late night visit from none other than England football legend David Beckham.

Becks had been to the Stone Roses concert at the nearby Etihad Stadium with his seventeen year old son, Brooklyn.  Following the gig they and their chums felt peckish so popped in to the Paradise restaurant.

They didn’t arrive until nearly 1:00am but all the staff were happy to serve them a selection of curries and poppadoms.  The former England captain spent half an hour there and was happy to pose for photos with staff and later with fans outside the restaurant.

If Becks ever ends up in Gloucester he will find that Baburchi Cuisine is one of the best modern Indian eating experiences available in the city.  Give us a call on 01452 300615 or explore  to view our eat in and take away menus.

Why Not Try an Indian Wine?

Looking for something a bit different to accompany your Indian take away?  Why not try a bottle of Indian wine.

Fiona Beckett, the wine writer for The Guardian, recently reported on a wine tasting organised for the launch of a new book called The Wines of India: A Concise Guide by Peter Csizmadia-Honigh.

Of the reds she tried, she was most impressed with Misfit 2013 from Myra Vineyard which she described as a “really gorgeous blend of cabernet and shiraz”.  It is from the Karnataka region, one of the premier wine growing areas in India, and will shortly be available from Premia Wines.

220 Year Old UK Cookbook Contains Curry Recipe!

A recipe for chicken curry has been found in an English cookbook dating back over 200 years, proving our obsession with the dish.

The Daily Telegraph recently reported the find of the handwritten recipe with ingredients including chicken, rice powder, curry powder and veal gravy.  It is one of 142 recipes in the book created by a cook at Begbrook House near Bristol in 1793.

The cookbook came to light when it was found by monks in a donation of a book collection to Downside Abbey at Radstock in Somerset.  It is believed to be a working kitchen cookbook, rather than one used for meals for special occasions.
