A Curry Named After Murray

by: Ed McGrogan June 26, 2013

WIMBLEDON, England—There are some fine Indian restaurants in Wimbledon village, with visitors and players alike sitting down for meals each evening. Sloane Stephens was seen at one popular spot, Rajdoot, a few nights ago, and if you're at one of these establishments for any length of time early in the fortnight, you'll likely witness a handful of pros getting their fill of naan, rice, and of course, curry, a staple of Indian cooking.

Considering Britain's love of the spicy cuisine, maybe I shouldn't have been too surprised when the following email popped in my inbox this morning:

'Murray Curry' created to boost Andy's chances at Wimbledon

Yes, a dish has been dedicated to the nation's hope for a male champion. Anjum Anand, who you may recognize from the Cooking Channel's Indian Food Made Easy, has whipped up a "light and brothy curry, packed with energy enhancing and health boosting ingredients such as chia seeds spices and wholegrain rice, to give Andy Murray the extra edge he may need to clinch the Wimbledon title."

I'll let you decide if the recipe, which you can view here, is easy to make or not. And we'll probably never know if Murray will fuel up with the curry—he's more of a sushi devourer, anyways. But it's a fun way to experience some local gastronomy, even if you're thousands of miles away from SW19.
