Relishing regional Indian food for #CurryforChange

Last week, I invited you to cook #CurryforChange, and I do hope you took up the offer. If you’ve signed up to host a supperclub, I expect your mind has turned to the menu, and what to do that will see your guests hands dipping as deep into pockets as possible.

‘Curry’ gives you endless scope. As I hope and expect y’all understand only too well, ‘curry’ is simply a catch-all term that (too) many use to mean the vast repertoire that falls under the umbrella of ‘Indian food’.

So narrow down the options: make your supperclub a showcase of a certain community or region’s recipes. The fantastic five I’ve proposed below should further increase your appetite to cook #CurryforChange quite nicely.

Now simply click the links to become an instant expert on some of India’s incredible regional cuisines…

And, if you’ve yet to find it in your heart to get involved with Find Your Feet, you can send off for a fundraising pack here.
