National Curry Week is upon us yet again! While this favourite fiery dish is loved by Brits all year round, many people see National Curry Week as an excuse to be more adventurous with their curry eating and a great time to try some dishes that are perhaps a little outside their comfort zone.
With this thought in mind, MyDish have decided to rank some well known Indian curries according to their perceived “heat” factor. To make this more interesting, we have produced an infographic to help our readers decide which curries they might be game to try this week! Enjoy! :
Don’t worry, all of the the curry recipes featured in our infographic are fit for human consumption! Although the swelteringly-hot Phall has achieved notoriety as the hottest available dish from Indian restaurants, it won’t leave you hospitalised like some of the dishes did to contestants in last week’s chili eating contest.
As you can see from our chart, there is a curry to suit all tastes (and tolerances!), so there is no excuse not to participate in this week’s National Curry Week. Just remember to do your bit for charity too, by donating to one of the many worthy causes that are supported by the event. Also remember, if you are stuck for a great curry recipe, MyDish have so many fantastic recipes that you could easily be eating curry every night of this week and beyond!
Enjoy Curry Week!
This year National Curry Week takes place from the 9th-15th of October and was established to help raise money for charitable causes, with a focus on starvation, malnourishment and poverty. Help support the event by heading to your local curry house to participate in various festivities and challenges or by cooking your favourite curry at home and donating money to this worthy cause.
