A recent study revealed Britain’s latest lockdown loves, including a penchant for fish & chips and curry! Orders for fish and chips have increased by 330% this year compared to 2020[1] – whilst a staggering 11% of us are eating curry between three to seven times per week!

Aldi has answered the UK’s takeaway cravings, by combining these beloved cuisines into one tasty bite sized treat. Aldi’s Chip Shop Curry Bites are coated in moorish light and crispy batter and filled with oozy, comforting Chinese style curry sauce and delicate bites of flaky cod.

Whilst there is a long standing rumour curry sauce originated from a Head Chef at The Ritz (who knew!) the true origin of the ‘proper’ British curry sauce is largely unknown . Although there is no denying, since the 1970s it has cemented itself as a UK fast food staple, lovingly poured over chunky chips, pies – and now available in bite size morsels from Aldi!

From beautifully moist Beef Steaks in Cola Glaze (£2.99, 300g) to Southern Fried Pork Schnitzel and a Cajun Pork Schnitzel (£2.89, 300g), shoppers can be transported back to the disco loving 70s.
