Halal was well represented among the winners of this year’s prestigious Curry Life Awards which took place at the London Hilton last weekend.

Organised by the Curry Life Magazine, the national award ceremony recognises the individuals and curry houses that represent the very best of the British curry industry.

A challenging judging process also meant the exciting creation of new and innovative dishes by some of the country’s unsung curry chefs.

Among the winners was Ashraf Uddin who was recognised for his services to the British Bangladeshi Caterers and awarded the Curry Life M A Rahim Memorial Award.

The Curry Life Magazine, a well established voice of Curry houses across the UK as well as some reach across Europe, says it reaches to “some 10,000 Indian, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan and Pakistani restaurants, with an estimated readership of over 100,000”.
