Nothing says ‘Dinner Is Ready’ like the smell of a hot, delicious curry made with love.

We’ve seen this dish evolve over the years, but one thing remains true: this traditional dish will be with us for centuries to come.

Kitchens around the country recognise this authentic dish, and it’s inviting aromas have been a part of many memories at the dinner table.
