THAI green curry is the meal to get your lover in the mood, according to research.
It has more ingredients classed as aphrodisiacs than any other dish.
They include cardamom, ginseng, garlic, ginger, basil, lemon grass and asparagus — all considered by different cultures to get you feeling sexy.
Hot and spicy pizza topped with tomatoes, onions, garlic, basil, olives, meatballs and chillis is runner-up, according to research for takeaway website Just-Eat.co.uk.
Chicken Korma comes in at No 3, thanks to its potent blend of coconut, garlic, chilli, ginger and almonds — all said to improve sex drive in females.
Seafood Laksa is fourth because of its coconut milk, ginger, garlic, basil and onions.
Just-Eat’s Ash Ali said: “Thai green curry has long been known in the East to boost sex drive.
“The British public instead only tend to know more expensive aphrodisiacs such as oysters and caviar.”
The rest of the Top Ten are:
5 Mole Poblano;
7 Chicken Tikka Masala;
8 Spicy Balinese Curry;
9 Spicy Meatballs and Pasta;
10 King Prawns With Ginger & Spring Onions.
