Since its introduction to the British public, as early as the 18th century, Indian food has become a well-established favourite amongst Brits and ranks in the top 5 most popular cuisines in the UK.

The UK prides itself on hearty, warming dishes, from a plethora of pies and stews to roasted meats and heaps of vegetables.

Indian cuisine was sure to become a favourite one way or another. The rich creamy sauces of curry dishes to the crispy, spice-filled fried dishes settled perfectly into the average diet in the UK and the cooler climate.

A 2016 report by the Financial Times revealed that there are around 12,000 Indian restaurants in the UK. In London alone there are more restaurants in the city than Mumbai and Delhi combined.

While Indian restaurants are busiest during the evening, they can often be overlooked for lunches as the cuisine is seen to be too heavy or too filling.

Indian Delights in Playa Blanca often have a weekly lunch menu to select from, but don’t be shy to pick off of the menu either. Here are a few ideas to try when you next find yourself in Playa Blanca and fancy an Indian lunch:

Festive Specials & Set Menus for two

Currently, Indian Delights are running their Day’s of Christmas specials where you can find daily offers on menu items as well as a glass of Cava for €1 all day long!

Make sure to check Indian Delights’ Facebook page here, they often post weekly set lunch menus for two, which include Poppadoms, a starter of your choice, main of your choice, sides of your choice and a coffee or desert to finish.

Go light

Indian food doesn’t always have to be curries and rice. The menu at Indian Delights includes a wide range of dishes ranging from side dishes to sizzling hot plates of spiced meats and vegetables.

A table spread

We’re living in Spain, so why not eat like the Spanish do? Experience new flavours and spices by ordering a table spread of starter and side dishes. You may just find a new favourite when picking off of various dishes.

Ask questions
