This great new venture, Curry on Cooking, recently appeared on Channel 5’s “Bargain Loving Brits”, the TV show that gives an insight to the Brits who exchanged their UK lives for sunnier climes. This cooking project was born when Nilam Wright moved to Costa Calida on the mainland and discovered unlike the UK, with its historic ties to India; curry is not on the menu in Spain, Spain has no longstanding links to South Asia and the 300,000 Brits who live there miss a good curry.
Spotting a business opportunity, the Spice Sisters (Nilam and her sister Veena Josh) produced a range of six curry kits. The flavours reflect what’s on offer in high street curry houses back in the UK. The names are instantly recognisable – Madras, Korma, Tikka Masala, Bombay Potatoes, Jalfrezi and Balti – and their motto, KISS – Keep it Simple, Sister, is printed on every pack,
TOTN had the pleasure of trying out these wonderful curry kits and can happily confirm that not only is the quality second to none, they are also incredibly easy to cook with. The kits come with a shopping list and an easy to follow recipe; they are free from sugar, gluten, dairy, nuts, additives, preservatives and suitable for vegans. Veena says: “We want to conquer as many tastes buds as possible but also to bust the myth that Indian food is unhealthy.”
As you cook with the kits, the authenticity is obvious. This is ‘real Indian food’ as well as a healthy alternative to jars.
Nilam Wight says “although curry is available in Spain – it’s not very nice, it’s expensive to eat out, the right spices are hard to find and everybody was lamenting how they missed a decent curry. As a result we created Curry On Cooking.” For a curry night that will not fail, we urge you to give it a try!
You can buy these kits via their website curryoncooking.com. One kit is just €3.50 and shipping is free for orders over €10.
