Ever had a dish that melts your heart or brings a big smile?
Is there one dish that hits your soft spot or brings comfort to you?
For me it is the humble curry and it’s after many years of living away that I have finally come to realise that curry is my comfort food. It is considered to be a source of comfort to many others too, particularly in the UK, where there is even a national curry week organised annually. The city of Manchester has a street dubbed the ‘Curry Mile’ where students, locals and tourists head for a quick curry fix.
While I was in Manchester earlier this year for 2 weeks, I ended up there quite often and had curry on alternate nights. While I did not plan on having it as often, I found it helpful to keep warm and it also uplifted my spirits. Upon heading further north to Edinburgh later, friends from the university there had organised a dinner outing and it was in an atmospheric Indian restaurant called Mother India café and it was a curry night!
