It’s National Curry Week – so I thought I’d share some of the curries I’ve tried and enjoyed and shared with you guys. It was only when I started looking through the blog that I realised quite how much I love curry – and have told you about it!
I haven’t included all the pictures – that would be a blimin’ long post – but I’ve included some to whet your appetite. If you want to read more about the meals, take a look at the individual blog posts.
Obviously, some of my local Indian restaurants feature on the blog. One of our regular haunts is the Masala Lounge in Rugby. Good food, good service, and usually a massive feast.
A recently discovery in Dunchurch, just outside Rugby, is Omar’s. So good I went twice in a week! Mr M stuck to his lamb pathia, as he always done, but here’s the fab meat thali my mum ordered, my sizzling fish, and possibly the best saag bhaji I’ve ever had.
Given the simplicity of my experiments, I sought professional help from the cooking school at Chaophraya Thai in Birmingham and managed to rustle up this beef panang curry, with the help of my glamorous assistant Mr Manning.
Just down the road in Brum, some work colleagues and I tried Milan Indian Cuisine, recently announced a finalist in the 2015 English Curry Awards. Here’s some of our meals, including my Rahra Lamb.
I’ve ventured further afield in search of curry too. A pal of mine took me to the Shimla Palace in Wolseley Bridge near Rugeley and I’m still gagging to go back. Their Benghi poppadoms are something I’ve never seen before, and my Ayer Shatkora with lemon and coriander rice was great.
I’ve even gone down to the big smoke on my quest, and got a taste of Bombay in King’s Cross courtesy of Dishoom.
From a Bombay cafe to a Midlands food festival – you can’t beat a bit of street food. Check out these samosas from Spice Fever that I tried at Rugby Food Fayre recently.
Well, I reckon that’s enough. Hope you enjoyed the little curry fest!
What’s your favourite curry or Indian restaurant. I’m always looking for new ones to try!
