Curries in Britain can be crap, truly crap. It seems the accepted wisdom is that the greasier the dish, the better it tastes. Not so. These days, Indian restaurants and food manufacturers alike are cottoning on to the fact that Subcontinental cuisine needn't leave it's turmeric-tinged mark upon your arteries.
One such pioneer comes in the form of Amrik Singh Dhaliwal. A second generation Indian living in the UK, Dhaliwal has developed a new range of readymeals (in the loosest sense of the term) which, in all their organic glory, strike the perfect balance between taste and body benefit.
The Holyfoods range includes an array of healthy dishes, but a few of our favourites include the dense, meaty Lamb Kofta; an understated Channa Dal and a mercifully chopped tomato-free Prawn Masala, all of which are available both from Selfridges and Whole Foods in Portobello - but considering the range's lighter than light calorie profile, we reckon it's probably OK to order in (as long as you live in Central London that is).
Dishes start from £6.99, www.holyfood.co.uk
