Keeping up with the Traditions, here are some the many dishes made famous by the British curry houses, revisited by the Raj of Kensington following on the methods and recipes passed down the generations
Simmered in fairly hot gravy of red chilli, onions, garlic and a hint of lemon juice, finished with fresh coriander. It is said to originate from the south of India, and gets its name from the city known as Madras when English merchants arrived there in 1600s (now Chennai). However, the name 'Madras Curry' is not used in India, but was invented by restaurants in Britain
Cooked with onions, shallots, ginger, garlic, black cardamoms, cloves and peppercorns.

Simmered in a chilli gravy of onions, garlic, ginger with added lemon juice for tartness and black pepper for extra pungency. Very hot. The vindaloo was originally a Portuguese dish which took its name from the 2 main ingredients which were ‘vinho’, wine/wine vinegar, and ‘alhos’, garlic. Over time it was spiced up, hotted up and otherwise changed by the indigenous peoples of the ex-Portuguese colony of Goa. Not many restaurants produce an authentic Goan vindaloo
A pungent and aromatic dish made with garlic, onions turmeric, garam masala, an intense rapid stir fried curry over high heat. Balti is more a style of cooking than one particular curry.

Since its arrival in the 1970s the Balti has found home in Birmingham, England
