Woman finds 200 year old curry recipe

The recipe uses chicken and spices

Culinary spices are required for a recently-discovered curry recipe that is more than 200 years old.

Sylvia Sibley, 73, came across an old book called The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy by Hannah Glasse when clearing out some of her late mother's possessions.

It dates back to 1796 and features unusual cures for ailments as well as hundreds of recipes.

One of these is called To make a Curry the Indian Way.

In this recipe, Ms Glasse explained how to prepare chickens and fry them with butter and onions, before adding "a large spoonful of ginger", "an ounce of turmeric" and some pepper.

These spices, the recipe notes, must be "beat very fine".

Cream and the juice of two lemons are then added, while the book also explains how to boil some rice as an accompaniment.

Last month, research conducted by the British Curry Club's in-house magazine Chaat! discovered 21 per cent of respondents cited jalfrezi as their favourite curry.
