Tikka Masala Is No Longer The U.K’s Number One Curry

October 17, 2017

Of all the foods that have been adopted into the British menu; none are so popular as the humble Curry. Brits love a curry so much we are never far away from a great Indian or Pakistani restaurant, and Curry is one of the most popular takeaway choices.

For a long time, the Tikka Masala stood as Britain’s most loved Curry.  But that mantle has been passed lately after a poll in preparation of National Curry Week has placed the Chicken Korma as Britain’s new favourite Curry.

The news hasn’t gone down too smoothly, however, as spice fans and curry aficionados across the land are fired up at the choice; seeing it as bland and boring replacement of the much-loved Masala.

Korma is a popular choice amongst women and children in the U.K who tend to veer away from spicy curries. It’s popularity stems from its creamy and sweet taste; more suited to a child’s taste buds.

The survey from JustEat threw up some surprise results. It doesn’t seem surprising that korma came out on top when you consider that half of brits can only name a total of 2 curries. Needless to say, we weren’t off to a good start.

Even more surprising is the fact that a third of people admit to choosing the same dish every time they choose a curry; two thirds of people have never been brave enough to try a vindaloo; another third had never even tried an onion bhaji! To complete this horror story the survey discovered a quarter of people admitted steering clear of naan bread.

The top ten list is as follows:

  1. Korma
  2. Tikka Masala
  3. Rogan Josh
  4. Jalfrezi
  5. Biryani
  6. Tandoori
  7. Balti
  8. Madras
  9. Dopiaza
  10. Bhuna

We are worrying for the future of great curries, and not taking anything away from Korma, but we think the U.K needs to stretch its spice taste buds and be more adventurous with their curries.

Your curry needs you, so get yourself down to your nearest restaurant. Manchester’s Royal Nawaab have a wide selection for you to sample – including korma.
