Tradition gets a roasting.

BRITS are turning their backs on tradition - and giving the Sunday roast a miss.

They would much rather tuck into a curry, according to a new survey.

More than 200 million curries were eaten in the UK during the 12 months up to August of this year.

But curry still comes in third place behind perennial favourites fish and chips and Chinese food.

Nearly one in 10 of the population consume at least one curry a week, with 71 per cent of those opting for a chicken curry.

Beef curries have dipped in popularity, with the proportion consumed falling from an average of 14 per cent in 1995 to just eight per cent now.

Mild curries remain the most popular of all, with korma - at 21 per cent - the number one among women.

Top choice among the men was a balti - it was picked by 13 per cent of those questioned.

Consumption of curry as a main meal has also increased by 19 per cent since 1995 in the findings issued by marketing information group Taylor Nelson Sofres MealTrak.
