A campaign from British Curry Club to encourage primary school children to grow curry ingredients has been launched with support from chefs Cyrus Todiwala, Anjum Anand and Hari Ghotra.

To take part in the campaign, schools will be expected to organise a gardening club and post to the schools social media pages with the hashtag #GROWYOUROWNCURRY.

Anjum Anand, food writer and television chef, said: “The campaign is a fantastic initiative to encourage children and their parents to create delicious curries together at home.

“Growing the seeds and spices will really help to get children involved in the scratch cooking process and highlight the flavours and benefits of cooking with fresh ingredients, as well as the fun you can have making your own meal.”

Alongside the campaign, British Curry Club is running a competition where schools are offered the chance to win £200 worth of primary school books, provided by Sweet Cherry Publishing, for pupils who submit a letter or drawing detailing how they enjoy the school gardening club.
