Bhuna with Tomato Raita

Rated 4.8/5 from 48 Customer Reviews

Bhuna is a highly spiced yet quite mild curry with lots of complex flavours and a bit of tang from the use of tamarind in the sauce.

The name describes the cooking technique of first frying the onions, garlic and spices in hot oil to form a dark, brown paste then adding the meat resulting in a dark brown, intensely-flavoured thick sauce coating the tender meat. It makes a great meal with a cooling tomato raita on the side.

Great service, they have really upped their game. Used to have a subscription about 2 years ago as a gift. Problem was, it would take about 1-2 hrs to prepare and cook and we are not novices. Cannot recommend enough, the recipes are very tasty, and easy

I'm now a complete convert and regularly order. The recipes are so easy, you just need half a dozen ingredients that I usually have anyway and they take about 20 mins to prepare. So easy and tasty. Highly recommend!
