London, Jan 8 (ANI): Indian spicy dish Chicken Madras has topped a new list of healthy takeaways.

Chicken Madras comes from southern India and the curry is quite hot owing to a fairly large amount of chilli in the recipe, reports the Scotsman.

The list, compiled by online takeaway site, included rogan josh at number three.

Rogan josh is an aromatic curry dish popular in India. Rogan means clarified butter in Persian, while Josh means hot or passionate. Rogan Josh thus means meat cooked in clarified butter at intense heat.

Rogan Josh was brought to India by the Moghuls. The unrelenting heat of the Indian plains took the Moghuls frequently to Kashmir, which is where the first Indian adoption of Rogan Josh occurred.

Kebabs, pizza and Chinese takeaways also made it to the list.
