New product development : thinking curries?

Aug 2nd, 2017

If you are thinking about adding a curry to your menu offer, from a traditional jalfrezi to a bespoke signature dish our new product development team have vast experience in developing mouth-watering curries for all tastes.

  • Data shows that one in seven curries sold in the UK is a chicken tikka masala – making it the UK’s most popular Indian dish.
  • The world’s hottest curry is believed to be the widower curry which is made with 20 infinity chillies which are exceptionally hot.
  • But according to a poll carried out by BBC Radio 2, the Nation’s Favourite British Indian curry was the Jalfrezi.
  • In the UK, we spend over £250 million a year on Indian food and is home to around 9,000 curry houses and restaurants.
  • London contains more Indian restaurants than Mumbai and Delhi combined.
  • There are two Indian restaurants to every one Chinese restaurant
  • We crave a curry mainly due to the fact that the spices arouse and stimulate the taste buds.
  • Two thirds of all takeaways in the UK are Indian food.
  • Vindaloo isn’t actually the hottest of curries – it’s Phaal, which is rarely served in Britain because of its heat.
