SPICE OF L FE; Curry king turns his famous bhoona dish into ready meal to give starving kids a boost.

Byline: SALLY HIND s.hind@dailyrecord.co.uk

THOUSANDS of hungry children will be fed thanks to a curry house's popular chicken bhoona.

Mr Singh's have turned their hit recipe into a ready meal which will help Scots charity Mary's Meals feed needy youngsters across the world.

The restaurant chain's bhoonas are now being sold in Costco, with each sale providing a meal for a child.

The PS6.67 dish for two is already proving a hit with shoppers, with 1400 meals being sold since they first went on sale last month.

It's hoped the partnership could feed 10,000 children.

Glasgow restaurant boss Satty Singh said: "We wanted to make an authentic meal and this is a 22-year-old recipe which is very popular - they've been selling out.

"Our chefs are used to making five or six portions at a time. To make 400-500 we needed a production kitchen at Braehead Foods. Every chicken bhoona bought from Costco will feed a hungry child through Mary's Meals.

"As a family business, we are very humbled and honoured to be involved in it."

Mr Singh's have worked with Mary's Meals for about nine years and donate proceeds from main dishes at their Braehead tapas restaurant.

Mary's Meals provide a daily meal to more than 1.1million children in some of the poorest parts of the world.

Founder Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow said: "We are very grateful to everyone at Mr Singh's for getting behind this partnership."
