It’s no secret we Brits love curry. In fact, there are over 9,000 curry houses to feed our appetites across the UK. And for 20 years, National Curry Week has celebrated our relationship.
This year, October 9th-15th will mark over 200 years of Indian restaurants in the UK and is the perfect time to indulge in some spice from your go-to curry house or takeaway.
But what will you all eat? We quizzed 2,000 Brits about their favourite curries, and found out the essential sides and sundries we can’t live without.
While the street food craze in recent years has produced some weird and wonderful curry creations, it seems the old classics still reign supreme.
The jalfrezi came in third place, with 7.6% stating this was their favourite, while the korma was second with a respectable 15%. But, the nation’s favourite curry with an extra-large portion of the votes was the tikka masala, with 18.5%.
Brits were also quite clear about their perfect sides. Pilau was the most popular rice dish at 44%, and 35% of people favour the garlic naan over its rival flavours.
Here at Wren Kitchens, we believe you can tell a lot about a person by their curry choice. So we’re asking everyone, what does your curry say about you?
