The UK loves a good curry, its become part of our weekly diet. Whats your favourite? Some like it hot, some not so. The mere mention of a vindaloo makes me want to reach for a milkshake, I’m a Balti of Dopiaza all the way!

This year, National Curry Week takes place from 22-28 October 2018 and involves curry restaurants, caterers and curry lovers across the UK celebrating the dish with diners, record breaking attempts, raffles, auctions and all manner of events designed to help combat poverty across the South Asian continent and worldwide.

2018 marks the 20th anniversary of National Curry Week, after it was started back in 1998 by a guy called Peter Grove, a writer and entrepreneur. Peter introduced this as a way of celebrating Indian cuisine and the UK’s incredibly diverse culture, the event worked towards raising awareness of local Indian restaurants and giving to charity- as well as encouraging us all to enjoy a tikka masala or two!

There are so many varieties of curries, you could make, share and eat a different recipe every day! Much loved brand Pataks have some lovely recipes to try at home. With dishes made with chicken, lamb, beef, fish and vegetables there is sure to be a curry to suit every taste or diet, hot or spicy as you like it!

Dishes can be made with chicken, lamb, beef, fish and vegetables.  They can come from a wide range of countries and each region has different tastes, but not all curries are super hot and spicy. But if you’re one of those people who are terrified at the very thought of a curry because you think it is going to be so spicy it is going to burn your mouth – well, most restaurants are very open to providing advice on the best dish to suit your individual tastes.  So, if you view curries with a little bit trepidation remember, you are sure to find something on the menu to your liking.

As for the curry lovers among you why not try a new curry dish?  Stop sticking to the same old curry; try something completely new or try a little twist on the old favourites.  And don’t forget the accompaniments; naan bread, chutney, poppadums, salad, lots of yummy flavoured rices and a Cobra beer, of course!

The Sun Newspaper keeps up to date with who has been voted the Best Indian Restaurant in the UK. Check out Olive Magazine for the Best in the UK 2017. Good Luck to all the Indian Restaurants this week if you are competing and happy #nationalcurryweek everyone!

What does National Curry Week have to do with Metro Rod?!

Metro Rod Cambridge offers a Grease Trap Emptying Service to all local restaurants, cafes and Takeaways in the local area of Cambridge, Ely, Downham Market, Kings Lynn, Bury St Edmunds, Thetford, Brandon and all the places in between.

What is a Grease Trap?

A grease trap is a plumbing device designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater system. Common wastewater contains small amounts of oils which enter into septic tanks and treatment facilities to form a floating scum layer. Common wastewater contains small amounts of oils which enter into septic tanks and treatment facilities to form a floating scum layer. This scum layer is very slowly digested and broken down by microorganisms in the anaerobic digestion process. Large amounts of oil from food preparation in restaurants can overwhelm a septic tank or treatment facility, causing release of untreated sewage into the environment. High-viscosity fats and cooking grease such as lard solidify when cooled, and can combine with other disposed solids to block drain pipes.
