Winter blues? Try Fry January!
Come on, is January really the best time to be cutting back on our indulgences? Seeing as we all agree that it’s the most depressing month of the year, doesn’t it make greater sense to treat ourselves to a few simple comfort food pleasures?
And nothing ups your takeaway game from ‘tasty’ to ‘downright delicious’ than blessing your order with some mouthwateringly moreish deep-fried delicacies.
It’s time to indulge with Fry January!
Sumptuous spring rolls
Start your meal on the right foot with one of the world’s most irresistible starters – crispy Chinese spring rolls, perfect with a generous dollop of sweet and sour sauce.
(With a special shout out to crispy wontons, of course.)
Bloomin’ bangin’ bhajis
Another deep fried crowd-pleaser that also demands a healthy helping of sauce (mango chutney, surely?), the onion bhaji is one of those starters it’s tempting to fill up on, leaving no room for your actual curry.
Still, curry keeps! Bag a bhaji and bring your Indian takeaway night to life – you deserve it.
Fiery fried chicken
Whether drummers or wings, strips or nuggets, a fried chicken feast is the perfect winter treat – especially when there’s a good helping of spice in the house recipe to give you a little bit of ZING.
Personally, I maintain my sushi addiction all year round. But when I need something a little more warming and comforting, tempura is my go-to takeaway treat.
This Japanese delicacy is a perfect winter warmer, especially following a steaming bowl of miso soup.
Classic fish and chips
As the old saying goes: “in the UK, you’re never more than 50 feet away from a good chippy.” So it follows that the possibly most popular fried dish in the country is that old favourite, fish and chips.
Served with your choice of mushy peas, curry sauce, gravy or just a good dose of nostalgia, fish and chips will surely have you dreaming of summertime daytrips and help you get through this grimmest of months. Happy Fry January everyone!
