The chef of an Indian restaurant in the UK has been fined over €2,300 for serving a chicken korma curry with peanuts while claiming it was nut-free.

Bangladesh origin Mohammed Uddin of Masala Indian Cuisine in east England pleaded guilty to selling the contaminated dish, which contained 6.8 milligrammes of peanuts, enough to endanger allergy sufferers.

The 44-year-old claimed he could not explain how the peanut had ended up in the korma but accepted there had been cross contamination.
