Finally just before i leave this country, i decide to try out the famous ‘curry’ supposedly Indian but no Indian would ever agree it tastes anything close to our curry. I have found a variety of such things like Vindaloo and Madras (yes there is a curry named just Madras) and such stuff in here which the British do consider spicy and hot. I ve had a lot of Baked Potatoes and Chips (Fries) with Curry Sauce on top which i should accept is tasty after the first few times. I especially loved the Curry Ketchup they serve over hot frites (fries again) in Belgium. It is sort of an acquired taste, but if you think you are having “Indian” u ll never like it. With an open mind to try out something new, yes the British Curry is yummy in its own way! This is my simple version of it.
