FRODSHAM Tandoori was a finalist in the seventh annual ‘Rice and Spice’ competition.
Leading curry chefs from across Vale Royal were allowed one hour to prepare a curry dish, a side dish and bread or rice in front of the judges at Mid Cheshire College.
Scores were awarded for taste, texture, aroma and appearance. Additional marks were awarded for culinary skills, originality, presentation and their level of hygiene awareness.
Manager Abab Miah said: “We were very proud to be in the competition. We were picked out from so many restaurants.
“We were hoping to win it to be honest but every year we go we seem to just miss out by a couple of points.”
Frodsham Tandoori chef Abdul Hussain cooked chicken shanti with a side dish of green bean bhagi and special pilau rice.
The competition is organised by Vale Royal Borough Council’s Environmental Health Department and is open to chefs in Vale Royal who have demonstrated a good standard of food hygiene and cleanliness.
The event saw finalists from the Bengal Dynasty Restaurant, Wincham, Eastern Spice, Barnton, Eastern Balti House, Weaverham, Millennium Balti, Winsford, Frosham Tandoori and the Greenbank Balti Chef compete for top spot.
