Mint sauce used to be loads better when you got it in a little bag with the onions pre-mixed in. I'd like to meet everyone who complained about that and force-feed them whole onions.
only found in scotland, made with a mix of ketchup, mint sauce, mango chutney and chilli powder, which sounds quite rank but is actually beautiful
nahhhhhhhhhh you get them in manchester
why have none of my english friends heard of spiced onions
and I think it's less common to get them as a matter of course (pretty much every curry restaurant in Glasgow they're like "spiced onions yeah?" but I think I've had to ask for them in Manchester). Pretty sure we got them in Bradford too. But not London (never had a good curry in London tho).
my London curry libel
my friend from essex didn't know what pakora was (despite having eating many indian takeaways). ffs, south of england.
imagine not even being able to talk about curry without getting chippy and bitter about other people
especially if I was drinking bitter
I can't get a decent one just moving from Bradford to Huddersfield, never mind the bland slop you guys dish up
Not nearly as common in Scotland as the North of England/Midlands, where samosas and pakoras have equal billing, but in Scotland there's a definite pakora bias.
Don't know or care about The South. Something about jellied eels/street burgers?
I think that's true (although I was brought up in a very samosa dominant household).
so i'm gonna say it's MORE OF A THING here
has found that they are called "red onions" in England. How confusing.
great naming, guys.
i'm definitely going to say red onions makes more sense than spiced onions though
but a red onion is a fucking red onion
it's already a thing.
ROSCOE: Er...you buy a red onion and chop it up?
the word set has a lot of different meanings too!
and mango chutney 'orange gloop'
That's the game.
