Victorian dish of the day.

STAFF at an award-winning Coventry restaurant are dishing up a taste of 19th century Warwickshire life for customers.

Jay Alam and the team at Turmeric Gold Indian restaurant, in Spon Street, city centre, have revived mutton collops, which was a popular dish in Stratford during the 1820s.

And they have added their own ingredients to bring the dish bang up to date.

Mr Alam said: "My restaurant is located in a building which dates back to the 15th century and mutton collops was popular in this area in the 1800s.

"We wanted to stamp the Turmeric Gold mark on it which is why we have added a handful of different ingredients for taste and fragrance.

"The piped potatoes around the minced mutton or lamb complement the rest of the dish because they contain a teaspoon of squeezed lemon."

Turmeric Gold was voted the best Indian restaurant by Coventry and Warwickshire diners in 2002 and 2003.
