Throw some fruit in your curry

A good curry is made up of different tastes and flavours. Just spicy isn’t good enough.
Add a sweet and tangy flavour to your curry with fruit like persimmon and apricots.
These fruits have been used to sweeten curries for many years even though they haven’t always been visible.
Add some grilled fruit to your curry to give it a burst of colour and play on the different textures of the fruit, this will also add an unexpected but appreciated twist to the taste of your food.
