Long ago, back in the dark ages Before Curry, the British diet consisted mainly of turnips and coal. BC Britain was a joyless place because not only were people curryless but also because they were unable to think of puns involving popular song titles and the names of different curries.
While older Brits still shudder at the memory of a world where there was no Korma Chameleon or Say Aloo Wave Gobi, today’s population know that there will always be a restaurant where they can scan the menu and turn the different items into curry songs.
Glasgow’s Curry Leaf is a great place to start. Specialising in modern Indian cuisine, the popular restaurant on Byres Road uses only the finest spices and ingredients to create dishes like the ginger lime chicken and the lamb chasni. You can finish off your meal with some kheer, an Indian version of creamy rice pudding. The Big Deal price of £13 includes a large glass of wine and a whisky and mixer.
Remember the wise words of Diana Ross who sang You Can’t Curry Love. However, at the Curry Leaf on Byres Road you can have a vegetable pakora starter followed by any main course (excluding chef’s specials and seafood) accompanied by rice or plain nan. There is kheer for dessert. A large glass of wine and a whisky and mixer are all part of the Big Deal price of £13; a 52% discount on the standard £27.35.
