In 1950 there were just six curry houses, the growth to 20,000 over 60 years is a massive phenomenon, unequalled in any other food market.
There were only 20 or more dishes; the actual food was modified Punjabi Mughal recipes. The skill was to turn out one of the dishes in minutes. The British public was impressed and quickly became addicted to curry. 60 years later the British people still remain accustomed to dining out on a regular basis.
The curry formula rapidly became a British institution. The arrival of the Spectacular Tandoori in the 1970s helped the rapidly expanding market ever. Today the British public are still excited about the curries. They are considerably more knowledgeable about the food than they were a generation ago.
Curries are now the most popular ethnic cuisine in Britain, over ten million people eating an Indian meal each week, bears witness to the fact.
