I only like a little rice, as does most people I know. So my question is, 'why do they provide so much?'

I haven't had a decen't curry for a long time and have given up for them. Except ASDA's cheap as chips frozen curry's. Very tasty. Best not ask what's in them!

I agree.

Curries have deteriorated in the last 5 years.

None of the curry houses I know now prepare any meat, they all buy c**p meat and chicken and dunk it in sauce for 5 minutes before serving.

Chinese is no better - all salt and MSG and pizzas no lnger seem to have any cheese or tomamto. What is the world coming to?

Ha! Come up here if you want a curry! wink

We decided on curry last night by the way and jolly nice it was too. I had a thing called a dhansak-e-murgh. A creation of their own I presume, and it came with pilau rice.

Whenever I go out for a curry I always look forward to it for ages but most often it dissapoints. Maybe it's the several pints of beer I've consumed beforehand dulling my tastebuds!!!

From the "Curry House Glossary of Terms":

"A famous Parsee dish. Interestingly the dhan part of the name means rice and a dhansak is traditionally served with a pulao of fried and spiced rice. An authentic dhansak will made with lamb and contain vegetables and many different types of dhal (the sak in the name). The curry house dhansak is often referred to as "hot, sweet and sour with lentils". The "hot" is chilli powder, the "sweet" is sugar and the "sour" is lemon juice. Curry houses commonly use masoor dhal (split red lentils) but some restaurants now use chana dhal to good effect. If it is done well the dhansak is an excellent curry with contrasting flavours and textures. But if the "sweet" in your restaurant dhansak is provided by the addition of pineapple then, in my opinion, you should order something else."

You could either
(1) ask for less rice
(2) Leave the rice you dont have room for
(3) Find a fat lad to share curries with, so he can eat more rice than you.
