Owner of Parade Ring Bar on Fakenham Racecourse returns from trip to India with fresh ideas for new recipes
The owner of a Fakenham restaurant has returned from a culinary journey to India to gain inspiration on what to add to their menu.
Parade Ring Bar is an Indian restaurant based at the Fakenham Racecourses, which also has two catering trailers and supplies frozen food to many retailers across the county under the brand name Currylicious.
Restaurant owner Rajan Verma prides himself on serving authentic cuisine in his Punjabi restaurant on the racecourse.
Raj’s trip took him to some of the most popular food destinations in the country, including New Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai, Goa, and Kerala.
"Each city offered a unique culinary experience, it allowed me to explore the nuances of regional cuisine and learn about new ingredients and flavours," said Raj.
"In New Delhi, I indulged in the rich flavours of Mughlai cuisine, which has been influenced by the culinary traditions of the Mughal Empire.
"I savoured dishes like kebabs, biryanis, and curries that were rich, flavourful, and fragrant. I also visited some of the city's famous street food stalls to sample chaats, samosas, and other popular snacks."
In Mumbai, Raj explored the city's famous street food scene, trying popular dishes like vada pav, pav bhaji, and chaat.
He also visited some of the city's upscale restaurants to try modern Indian cuisine, which combines traditional flavours with contemporary cooking techniques.
"I returned to Norfolk with a wealth of new ideas to incorporate into the Currylicious menu," said Raj.
He plans to introduce new dishes that showcase flavours and ingredients of each region he visited.
