WHEN it comes to curries the choice is endless – korma, tikka masala and dhansak or there’s jalfrezi, vindaloo and madras.

Maybe you prefer a Thai curry instead and have to choose between red, green or yellow.

Chicken tikka masala is Britain’s favourite curry dish – grilled chunks of chicken in a spiced sauce, served with rice and naan bread and a side of poppadoms – but which is Mid Cheshire’s favourite curry?

Where in the area can you enjoy the best curry dish?
