What Does Your Favourite Curry Say About You?

Choosing your favourite curry can be difficult – after all, there are so many to choose from. Maybe it’s the mild yet creamy Korma, or perhaps you’re more of a vindaloo fan! Whatever your favourite curry dish, we can bet it says all lot about you as a person.

In fact, it is probably able to tell us about your personality, interests and habits – not just your culinary tastes. At Family Secret, we have outlined some of the most popular curries in the UK and what they say about you! So, next time you order your favourite takeaway you will be thinking about much more than how delicious it looks…


People may look at you and think you’re plain and simple but you’re a classic after all! Meek and mild, you don’t need all the bells and whistles to make you stand out. Instead, you enjoy the simple things in life and people know what they are getting with you, it’s one of the reasons you’re so popular with everyone!

Tikka Masala

This sauce packs a bit more punch than the Korma but is still gentle enough on the tastebuds to suit most palettes, just as you are versatile and able to adapt to different situations and get on with almost everybody! A firm favourite with a little bit more flavor, you are the life and soul of most parties!

Rogan Josh

Just like the Rogan Josh’s rich flavour, you enjoy the more indulgent things in life. Full of personality but easy to get along with, you are full of character. You are bold, confident and not afraid to make a statement!

How To Make An Indonesian Rendang Curry

How To Make An Indonesian Rendang Curry

Originating from West Sumatra in Indonesia, the Rendang recipe was linked to the Minangkabau people. They typically cooked the delicious dish on a daily basis. However, it was cooked on ceremonial occasions to honour guests and festive seasons. 

Traditionally, a Rendang is cooked using coconut milk and beef as the main ingredients. Traditional recipes would then add pepper, onions, turmeric leaves and lime leaves. The dish would be left to cook for hours until the sauce was completely absorbed by the meat. Thus, leaving it delicious and juicy to eat.

Now, while best served in its home country, you needn’t travel all the way to Sumatra to recreate this iconic dish. At Family Secret, we have created a range of low fat curry sauces that are perfect for creating traditional dishes – including our Indonesian Rendang Curry sauce.

For this recipe you will need:

● 575g Diced Beef

● Family Secret’s Indonesian Rendang Curry Sauce

● 200ml Water

● 250g Basmati Rice


1. Add the diced beef to a wok and cook on a medium heat for at least 3 to 4 minutes – or until the meat has browned.

2. When the meat is cooked, stir in Family Secret’s Rendang sauce and leave to simmer on a low heat. If you want the sauce to go further, particularly if you have a big family, try adding the water to thin out the sauce.

3. You will know when the dish is ready when the meat is tender to touch and liquid has been fully absorbed. This will usually take an hour to happen. However, if you’re in a rush to cook a quick dinner, we recommend leaving the sauce to simmer for at least 30 minutes.

4. While your Rendang is cooking, prepare your basmati rice and serve up onto your dinner plates.
