I've decided to avoid all the trouble and get a Thai today instead.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

This is horrible, everyone is debating what the person didnt say and nobody is debating what is. Clearly the media got hold of this and started projecting, but what was originaly said has got me thinking...

Ive never thought about it, but what is curry? Is curry literally what we call curry? Is a Korma a curry or is it just a Korma? Does it have to be something from India with indian spices to be a curry? If not then is corination chicken a curry?

Actual curry that we call curry, did India invent that or did we? If looks like a curry but from a different country, is it still a curry?

I am not saying any of this to be a pain in the ass, I genuinly dont know the correct answer, but that instead the media grabbed keywords and built "They are trying to cancel curry..." from it.

And frankly, the question "What makes a curry a curry?" is way more interesting than any political dross people have attached to it...

Curry itself is actually a recipe that originates in India. The Indian food we eat over here is very different to what Indians eat over there as genetically they are able to tolerate spicy hot dishes better than what we can in the UK.

Curry essentially was created in India but when the Indians came over to the UK and set up their restaurants they gave us curry to suit our palate. Over time things have evolved and Vindaloo and Phal have come into existence over here. As curry was the main dish here at first the terms has just stuck so that is why we hear the term curry house but as you know when you visit an Indian restaurant there is much more than curry on the menu.

Hope this helps and explains it a bit for you.

On toast for breakfast the next morning. Marinaded even more in the fridge overnight. Yum.

Come to think of it all curry tastes better after a night in the fridge.

this thread has too much argy bargy and not enough onion bargy. So the white working classes, the last on the list where state hand outs and positive discrimination are concerned, are once again being slurred as prejudiced and racist for their refusal to be educated about the word 'curry', and now off they go making their assumptions without deferring firstly to the originators of this cuisine. So in defence of ordinary working purveyors of the Indian takeway (or sitty downy) here's one for all the liberal wokes out there with their snobby agenda ... they don't call it 'curry' bcos they're prejudiced, it's because they're bleedin' ignorant.

Isnít curry an anglicised version of the sauce used to cook different ingredients? The curry served in England isnít much like that eaten in India - nor are things like fish and chips served in Asia much like ours.

there's a no-no, ever tried Steak and chips in an Indian restaurant? the ignorant bast*rds don't know how to cook it, so they've come over here and clearly failed to integrate properly, sometimes there's not even any ketchup ffs.

India have sauces and rice or no rice but the sauces are different and hotter and not called curry. Never were. Some sauces (gravy) are similar. And they donít all eat meat, and if they do, it isnít just chicken breast.

For your view to truly matter on this subject you have to be a poc (person of curry). And as it's tasty, I'm confident we all fit that criteria :-D.

The only thing you are likely to get eating in India is food poisoning. 90% of India is a s*** hole.
I once lived next door to an Indian restaurant and out the back was disgusting. The smell at times was horrendous at times.

30 years ago, I once accompanied a hygiene inspector around a number of restaurants, some of which were Indian. One Indian I remember had a filthy toilet cubicle, with no door, actually in the kitchen where food was being prepared. Quite shocking.
I shan't name it, but it was in Beckenham. I had eaten in there on a number of occasions.
For balance, I also saw a restaurant kitchen in Peckham which was not Indian, that was beyond belief in terms of its appalling state.

In short, I'd be more worried about the s*** we are served up for extortionate prices rather than terminology.
