The Post Fry’s Curry Cook-Off Competition


Meat-free curried dishes don’t have to be boring – they can be just as delicious as their meat counterparts but with all the added health benefits of a vegetarian diet. And to get the gastronomic creative juices flowing, we partnered with Fry’s Family Foods for our first vegetarian Curry Cook-Off in South Africa.


To help prepare food fit for the Gods, the POST/Fry’s Curry Cook-Off will take place during September and October to coincide with the month-long Tamil fasting month of Purtassi, as well as the Hindu period of Pitru Paksha, when ancestors are worshipped. Two regional semi-finals will be held at Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom in Durban and at Carnival City in Johannesburg. The final cook-off will take place at the Wild Coast Sun.


Celebrity chefs such as Deena Naidoo and Asha Maharaj will sample the dishes to choose a winner. Now get ready to take part in the POST/Fry’s Curry Cook-Off by creating original dishes incorporating any of Fry’s 21 products.


To enter, simply fill in an entry form (download here) and attach it to your original recipe using one or more of the Fry’s range. Then scan and email to tashni.bridgmohan@inl.co.za or drop off at Independent Media, 18 Osborne Street, Greyville, in the POSTcompetition box.

Deadline for entries is 12 noon on June 17!
