Time’s up for tikka... curry No1 is korma

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY STEPHEN HAY­WARD

MOVE over tikka masala... korma is the new king of cur­ries.

Nearly a fifth of peo­ple now say the mild creamy dish is their No1 In­dian.

To­mato-based tikka masala – once named our na­tional dish – fell to No2, fol­lowed by madras, jal­frezi and vin­daloo.

One in three of us now chooses the same In­dian dish ev­ery time, ac­cord­ing to re­search by King­fisher beer for Na­tional Curry Week, start­ing to­mor­row.

Nearly two-thirds ad­mit they’ve never tried a vin­daloo. Boss John Price said: “Many are miss­ing out on in­ter­est­ing dishes. Curry Week is a chance to try some­thing new.” ■
