As well as holding several fundraising activities, including the world’s first ever Poppadomathon, Bradford worked with Seabrook to create a Chicken Karahi flavoured crisp in conjunction with restaurant team member Akbar’s.

Peter Grove, event organiser, said: “This year’s competition was tougher than ever, with 22 cities bidding to be crowned Curry Capital of Britain, and we’re delighted to see Bradford chosen by the public.”

“The Curry Capital of Britain awards encourage recognition of the importance of the curry sector in Britain and Bradford’s restaurants are a fantastic advocate for the cause.”
