To celebrate National Curry Week I was given the opportunity to try some of Sainsbury's delicious curry range, We have been trying to cut out meat, so we opted for the vegetarian variety. With so much to choose from we were spoilt for choice, I chose some tasty Vegetable Biryani, Pilau Rice, Indian Snack Selection, Bombay Potatoes, Garlic & Coriander Naan.
Sainsbury's Indian curry range starts from £0.75p upwards, I love that you can have some of your most favourite Indian foods instantly, perfect for an evening in, Sainsbury’s reveals how the nation’s love of Indian cuisine has evolved since its introduction to the UK to Britain in 1747. The nation has fully embraced and continued to evolve classic Indian cuisine throughout the decades. With popular dishes such as Tandoori and the Balti.But as UK tastebuds become increasingly sophisticated and with a greater demand for authenticity, more flavoursome and exotic varieties are becoming available, further establishing Indian food as the nation’s favourite.
A recent survey, commissioned by Sainsbury’s, revealed that alongside cupboard favourites such as chilli, ginger, paprika and cumin, we are also opting for more exotic ingredients when it comes to cooking curry.
