Customers at a Cannock Indian restaurant will now be able to sample a special curry showcased at the House Of Commons and raise money for charity at the same time.

The Dilshad restaurant, based at Cannock Road, Chadsmoor, has introduced The Dilshad Special House Of Commons Chicken Bangla Curry to its menu.

For every curry which is sold £1 will go to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

The curry was cooked by chef Piara Miah recently at the grand final of The Tiffin Cup with celebrity chef Ainsley Harriot leading the panel of judges.

The dish is a medium heat roasted chicken marinated with a variety of herbs and spices and served with vegetables and cottage cheese.

The restaurant had won the West Midlands regional final of the Tiffin Cup and finished fifth overall in the grand final.

Tony Uddin, owner of The Dilshad, said: “It was an absolute honour to cook at the House of Commons in such a prestigious competition and finish fifth out of the entire United Kingdom. We thought it would be a wonderful idea to let our customers come and sample what was cooked on the day for the judges which included top celebrity chef Ainsley Harriot. The chicken bangla dish has been tried out at the House Of Commons and we really think our customers will enjoy it. We shall be putting it on the menu for a short time initially but if it proves to be popular it could be a permanent fixture.

“We are also donating £1 for every House of Commons special chicken bangla curry sold. The money will go to Birmingham Children’s Hospital which is such a worthy charity.”

When customers come and try The Dilshad Special house Of Commons Chicken Bangla Curry they will automatically be handed a £10 voucher to come along to the restaurant another night to spend it on any curry they choose.

The restaurant was nominated to take part in the competition by Cannock Chase MP Aidan Burley who is a regular at The Dilshad and recognised its culinary excellence.

The Dilshad, which is also home to the UK’s hottest curry, beat off stiff competition from 89 other restaurants from across the UK to represent the West Midlands. Thirteen restaurants took part in the grand final and included entries from Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

The competition was held at Bellamy’s restaurant in parliament and celebrated the diversity of South Asian food and also raised money for the chosen charity of the Tiffin Club which runs the competition.
The Dilshad is the most established Indian restaurant in the Cannock area having been open for more than 30 years.

Since its opening in 1979 the Dilshad has won a clutch of trophies for its excellent food and service.

In 2010 the Dilshad chef Babul Miah was named Chef Of The Year in the Midlands Curry Awards beating chefs from over 50 restaurants in Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
