I watch and listen to a lot of British comedy stuff. I eventually catch on to most references/ people, or at least get the gist.
But sometimes i want more details.

Todays query is: Whats 'a curry'? Everyone talks about getting a curry. I gather its food. But it seems akin to chinese takeout perhaps? Its deliverable according to this last episode.

I fully intent to bump this thread as i have questions, catching up on 5 years of this podcast.

Could I google? Yes. But what fun is that? I miss asking real people questions, and having conversations that sprout.

So. Whats a curry?

Honorable mention question: is Rear of the Year still a thing? And how does one win it? Random, like People's most beautiful person? Vote? Interesting.

curry is traditionally indian

it’s kinda a thick soup and it can be eaten over rice or with naan and it’s generally got some kick to it

london has a lot of curry restaurants

Here’s my question:

We have jelly, jam, and jello. All three are very different. I know over there that jello = jelly and jelly = jam but what is the word for our jelly?

curry in england is actually different to in india. it's a weird mix of stuff that we kinda created with all the indians who came over
it is takeaway food, a similar sort of deal to chinese takeout. there are also loads of eat in restaurants
i'd say it's more like a spicy stew than a soup, like disappears says you eat it with rice or naan bread normally. you'll also sometimes have poppodoms first (think the equivalent of prawn crackers in a chinese....not sure if americans do that though?) with chutneys and stuff to dip them in
there's lots of different types of curry, some extremely hot (for example vindaloo), some nice and mild if you're a WIMP (for example korma (which is also delicious ))

in general they're all really great and delicious

YES

Someone mentioned on a show (hugh dennis on mtw i believe) that he got sent to school with an 'unmade jelly square' with lunch, which was odd and got laughed at. And i am so confused.

Curry to me is a dish that is quite like a stew or sometimes more soupy, but usually quite chunky/hearty. Generally referring to either an Indian or Thai curry. But then there’s Japanese curry, too. And just general curry which you make up as you go along.
It has curry paste in it?
Served with rice usually, or maybe a bread.
The word conjures a picture of spices, paste, vegetables, meat, often some coconut milk, some rice and yogurt to go with.

Jelly here is that stuff made of gelatines, sugar, and water with a colour thrown in.
Jam is made with a fruit.

That jelly cube makes the equivalent of your jello. Like how you can get gelatin in either powder form or sheet form, and add to water to achieve the same results, jelly cubes are the gelatin and the flavour all condensed into a cube, which you add to water to make jello

Jelly here can also mean a condiment made from fruit juice. Most people in the UK would think of the desert (equivalent to jello) first, though. Unlike the desert, I think it doesn't tend to have gelatine in it; the gelling just comes from the pectin in the fruit. I only remember seeing redcurrant jelly and mint jelly in supermarkets - you'd have them with a roast dinner.
e.g.




And yes, rear of the year is still a thing, or some people won it last year at least. I think it's an online vote/nomination.

This answers my question. But I have to say it’s the first time I’ve ever got a response with someone understanding what I mean!

So,
it’s called jelly, but most people don’t know about it and think of the wiggly jiggly stuff we call jello when they hear the word jelly? Interesting.

While they have the same use, they are not the same.

Yeah. Jam does not equal jelly. That is the part I always try to explain.

more and more I realise that everything I say here is taken in the completely wrong way. It’s funny but also deeply disturbing

In mt experience fried are called chips unless theyre steak fries. Curry is aleays weird and if your gonna eT it get reDy for both bones amd useless spices for no reason

Seriously just one peraon give me one reason why these pos restaurants feel the need to coat their evrythimg in thesd useless spices while they are going under

Salad cream is not mayo, it is nasty.
