An Indian takeaway in Lincoln will re-open under new management on Wednesday evening, promising to serve restaurant quality food right to people’s doorsteps.

Mr Singh, who grew up in the Punjab area of India, is getting ready to take charge of his first takeaway business Hot Masala, which is located on Monks Road.

It will open at 5pm on Wednesday, May 6 with opening hours of 5pm-11pm Tuesday to Sunday.

Dishes include chicken and lamb biriyani, madras, bhuna, dansak and many more, with a range of different rices and breads, as well as vegetable dishes, also available. All of the curries can be made vegetarian and there are vegan alternatives.

Initially, the takeaway will be delivery and collection outside only due to the government restrictions in place during the coronavirus lockdown. Orders can be made via the website or Just Eat and a phone number will be posted on the takeaway’s Facebook page in the near future.

Mr Singh will run it alongside manager and head chef Asif Iqbal, who previously worked under Harpal Singh Sokhi from the famous Hotel TaJ in Goa.

He told The Lincolnite he is also bringing in a dish inspired from India, the Railway Lamb Curry, which he doesn’t think anywhere else in Lincoln sells. The dish is cubed lamb with baby potatoes in a curry leaf, coconut and mustard seed sauce, served with saffron pulao rice.

He said: “We want to bring authentic Indian food to Lincoln. We will serve restaurant quality food right to the doorstep in Lincoln. I was inspired by my roots in India and wanted to share that with the city.”
