THE man­ager of a Chel­tenham take­away has hailed his mother’s se­cret recipe which he be­lieves sets the busi­ness apart from its com­peti­tors.

Ec­static Josh Krori re­vealed why he thinks the Ro­gan Josh in Winch­combe Street won big at the English Curry Awards 2019.

The pres­ti­gious cer­e­mony, held in Birm­ing­ham on Mon­day evening, saw the lo­cal eatery win the re­gional ‘Take­away of the Year’ cat­e­gory be­fore scoop­ing the na­tional prize as well.

Mr Krori, 40, said: “We feel ec­static, it’s a dream come true.

“We are very proud of pro­duc­ing fresh meals from the best pro­duce.

“Our chef, Mo­ham­mad Rauf, has been in the busi­ness 22 years. We aim to pro­vide an amaz­ing ser­vice to our loyal cus­tomers.

“I’d like to thank them, our staff and Oceanic Con­sult­ing for hold­ing this pres­ti­gious event.”

Asked what dish im­presses cus­tomers the most, the man­ager said: “Josh’s House Spe­cial is very good - an aro­matic curry pre­pared us­ing freshly ground garam masala, herbs and other sun dried spices. “It’s my mother’s se­cret recipe.” The take­away was set up in Chel­tenham nine years ago and its cus­tomers have given it four stars out of five on rat­ings site Trip Ad­vi­sor.

There is an­other branch in Newent, which is cur­rently closed for re­fur­bish­ment.
