|The Scarborough News got into the swing of National Curry Week with this excellent feature|
Curry Capital 2012 sponsors Hungry House are doing their bit by teaming up with Action Against Hunger. For every Indian takeaway ordered through their site during National Curry Week, 10p will go toward the Love Good Give Food campaign, which is aiming to provide sustainable solutions to hunger in Liberia, Niger and Burkina Faso. For more details about the initiative, head here.
So it's all for a good cause, but there seems to be a real emphasis on fun, whether it's attempting to break the world poppadom-stacking record, writing poems about curry or taking part in a spicy pub quiz. So if you fancy getting involved, or finding out what's going on near you, head on over to the National Curry Week website to see what's what. Not surprisingly, each of the four restaurants representing both Glasgow and Edinburgh are down on the list of participating curryhouses, so if you were waiting for an excuse to check them out, next week would be a good time.
If you were considering celebrating National Curry Week at home for at least one night, it's also probably a good time to get on board with Cracking Curries, the new web cooking series from broadcaster Aasmah Mir. It launched a couple of weeks ago with a simple, easy-to-follow recipe for Tarka Daal that we would embed below if that was possible, but this screengrab gives you a flavour.
Episode two has already gone live, with ep 3 on the way in the next few days so it looks like one to watch. And the fish curry recipe on the Cracking Curries website looks especially tasty.
So, how will the Tramps celebrate National Curry Week? A special TATTGOC outing? A home-made curry spectacular? A date with the Kismot Killer? Probably a mixture of all of these things. Enjoy!
