Blinking flip. I'm visiting my parents. They live in a town in the north of England. Takeaway curry required as its Friday.

AIBU to think that the vegetarian curry shouldn't contain Brussel sprouts. And it was bland. Yuk.

Any other disgusting curry ingredients?

Kormas. Yogurt and coconut?! That's a dessert grin

Have you noticed how the chefs who do the vegetarian meals have never heard of a knife. I had half an onion in one of them. Not cut any further than that.

Indeed. But this was a frozen mixed veg in crappy sauce. Rubbish. With sprouts. The paneer starter was nice though. Real paneer.

Vegetarian curry is a disgrace.

Some foods just don't work well as veggie alternatives.

Sprouts?! Jesus.

Well we live further south and the veggie curry is always nice. But they have no sprouts.

Sprouts in a curry? In the north of England? Where the hell are you?!

Are sprouts ever acceptable?

They're kind of a Christmas joke. Not proper food.

It's one of those things no one likes but eats because of tradition. Like wedding cake.

With half of India being veggie, it is a wonder how the standard style curry house don't tend to them well. I think it's getting better though, in the south at least!

Veggie curry should have mushrooms onions brocillo cauliflower, maybe pepper and mange tout.

But whenever I buy it it always seems to contain nasties like half a carrot aubergine sweet potato

Raisins angry

Imperial I grew up here. We've been researching my family history and my mam's side have been there for generations but I wil never ever ever get a take away from here again.

It is north east England.

Never had sprout in a curry. Do you think they got the idea from bottom?

Better to order a thali for a decent load of veggie curries.

StealthPolarBear Fri 19-Aug-16 22:50:00

Ooh where goth we've just had a takeaway too

I put sprouts in the Boxing Day samosas, I must admit. But shredded, not whole; spiced, not bland.

Sprouts in August is a travesty.

Gothgirl78 Fri 19-Aug-16 22:51:10

I love spouts generally but not unexpectedly in a curry. Though to be fair it did just say mixed vegetable jalfrasi.

ImNotJoeMyNameIsHarry Fri 19-Aug-16 22:51:47

It annoying thing is when I get chopsticks to eat it yet I still need to use a night. Also from the north east gothgirl grin

StealthPolarBear Fri 19-Aug-16 22:51:48

Oh yes and anything that should be dessert, raisins, pineapple

MiddleClassProblem Fri 19-Aug-16 22:52:13

I do like sprouts though but not much I don't eat 😂

ImNotJoeMyNameIsHarry Fri 19-Aug-16 22:52:13

Knife not night

MiddleClassProblem Fri 19-Aug-16 22:52:40

Raisins in curry is like school dinners curry

I thought you meant a bean sprout initially and was like....hmm yeah I suppose that's a bit weird. Then I realised what you meant and genuinely went shock

I adore sprouts, but not in curry I think!

Laughing at people who think vegetarian curry is weird.
