I’ve Been A Bit Quiet Lately While Trying To Promote This Curry Blog

When you write a curry blog, you’ve got to get the word out!

We had seconds!

The thing about writing a curry blog is that it’s sometimes difficult to get the word out about what you do. Curry is loved by millions but I’ve found that people either love it or they don’t. This often makes it difficult to get the word out to the mainstream about the food I love to cook and promote.

So it was a bit of a shock on Sunday evening when we learned the my blog was featured in the Mail Online and the Mirror. We also found out later that the story was also in print in the Sunday People but we didn’t know in time. Anyone have a copy?

Since these stories hit the press, I have had several interviews including one yesterday on the BBC Asian Network and a few local papers which I will post when they hit the news stand!

In the middle of it all, I was invited to cook at my favourite local curry restaurant Chai Wallah which was a lot of fun and I learned so much. I’ll be posting some amazing Chai Wallah recipes in the next few days.

The thing is, all of this new attention takes up a lot of time. I’m not complaining! I just wanted you to know that I haven’t stopped writing recipes. Everything will be back to normal soon.

On a really good note, I have sold hundreds of copies of my new ebook “How To Make British Indian Restaurant (BIR) Style Meals” because of the new publicity. This is what makes it possible for me to continue with this expensive but much loved hobby of mine.

So to celebrate, I’m taking the day off to make a Chai Wallah korma curry which I promise you are going to love. Watch this space and have a very curryful day!

    Great stuff Dan – just have no idea how you do the day job! Or perhaps curry is the new day job. One thing I would add is that maybe you want to widen things even more? I mean I love curry and have it several times a night. But your own recipes and indeed what I cook a few times a week go beyond that magic word. Your seared tuna is one example. For me, I have been cooking (basically) chicken breast with sliced potato, mushroom and pepper in an oven dish. Does not look like curry – but has all the themes (and most of the spices).
    Keep it up!

    Cheers Mark. My day job is probably suffering so it’s decision time. I have some new – way out there recipes – on the way.

      Hi Jenny

      Thanks for that. I absolutely love Xacutti and have a recipe on my blog. Perhaps your husband could share his recipe with me. :-)
