Brits are set to be divided over the launch of a limited-edition ‘Nutella Chicken Masala’, as on-demand food-delivery company, Deliveroo, and Indian restaurant, Tamatanga, team up to put a nutty twist on a classic curry in celebration of World Nutella Day.
Deliveroo customers in Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham will be able to order the sweet and savoury creation at participating Tamatanga restaurants between 2nd – 7th February.
Chef Himanshu Khurana at Tamatanga spent weeks perfecting the limited-edition curry, which has been created to celebrate World Nutella Day on Friday (5th February).
Made with multiple layers of aromatic ingredients, the savoury-sweet curry sauce features a lathering of the chocolate-hazelnut spread along with pungent whole red chilli, spices, coconut milk, lime zest, garlic and coriander stems, coating deliciously tender chicken tikka pieces.
As curious customers await their chance to try the new dish, Deliveroo has revealed Birmingham is the curry capital of the UK, with more customers ordering curry per capita than any other region.
Aman Kular, Managing Director at Tamatanga said: “Our friend’s at Deliveroo challenged us with creating a truly mouth-watering Nutella curry, and to our surprise, we were blown away by the results. For decades people have used nuts to make rich and creamy sauces, and many chefs will know you also experience a depth in food when you match chocolate with chilli. The flavours work so well together – the taste is incredible, you’ve got to try it to believe it.”
Arabella Jenkins at Deliveroo said: “Food discovery, innovation and creativity has always been at the heart of what we do at Deliveroo, but 2021 is the year to take great food to the next level. We shocked Londoners in 2018 by creating the first Nutella Chicken Kebab, and this year, our partners at Tamatanga have succeeded in creating the latest experimental dish that our customers didn’t know they wanted. Curry and Nutella – what’s not to love?”
Deliveroo is presenting customers with the crème de la crème of unexpected but nutterly delicious dishes available on the platform right now.
What’s more, between 18th January – 28th February new-to-Roo customers can save big money on food when they sign to the platform. New customers can get £10 off their first delivery with a minimum spend of £15 by using the code WEGETFOOD. There’s no reason not to ‘tikka-chance’ and try the limited edition ‘Nutella Chicken Masala’.
The Nutella Chicken Curry will be available to Deliveroo customers in Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham for a limited time only on Tamatanga’s menu from 2nd-7th February, priced at £10.95 excluding delivery and service fees.
