Celebs Love Their Curries!

You and I really enjoy our Indian food but did you know that a number of top celebrities do too?  And I am talking mega stars here!  Plus David Cameron.

·         Lady Gaga – the pop icon has gone on record saying she loves Indian food so much that she “could go into an Indian food coma”.  We are still trying to find out if she recycled the meat from her infamous dress for a biriyani.

·         Tom Cruise – Tom was spotted in the Veer Dhara Restaurant in St Albans when he was in the UK a couple of years back filming  All You Need Is Kill.  Embarrassingly, he only had US dollars and an American Express card on him, neither of which the restaurant were able to accept as payment for the £220 bill.  Luckily a member of his team was able to pay and left a very generous £80 tip!

Camerons Enjoy Their Curry While They Still Can

Camerons Enjoy Their Curry While They Still Can 

David Cameron and his wife Samantha took a break from the recent Tory Conference to enjoy and Indian meal in a south Manchester restaurant where they sampled chicken Balti and chicken korai.  Government policy may make such meals somewhat harder to find in the future, however.    

An unfortunate side effect of the current furore about immigration is that there is now a shortage of Asian chefs in the UK and the Indian restaurant industry is especially hard hit.

The Spices of Life

The differing climates of the Indian subcontinent have led a variety of spices being grown.  In addition, many spices have been imported and are now part of the Indian culinary range.

Spices in Indian cooking are primarily to add flavour, not heat, and result in some wonderfully aromatic dishes.  Each spice has its own unique flavour but can also be combined with other spices to excellent effect.  Many spices also have medicinal or health benefits.

How “Indian” is our Indian Food?

Most people know that the ever-popular chicken tikka masala served up in many Indian restaurants actually originated here in Britain.  However, did you also realise that these are not original Indian foods?

Samosa.  Bite into the tasty flaky pastry and taste the meat or vegetable filling and you would think this is the ultimate Indian speciality.  You’d be wrong, though, as it originates in Persia and was brought into India by Persian traders in the Middle Ages.

Spicing Up or Cooling Down Curries!

The versatile dish that is a curry can cater for all tastes.  Let’s face it, we do not all like the same thing; some prefer something tasty and flavoursome while some like it hot.  Whatever your personal preference, you can make a dish hotter or cooler by employing these simple suggestions:

Never Too Hot!

•It is chilli that usually gives a curry it’s heat, be it crushed, dried, powdered or whole.  If you’d like it hotter, add more chilli.
