Dang. Harsh? They're not necessarily dumb questions; they're asked in the wrong forum.

My guess? Brits like Indian food so much because it's delicious.

Indian food is plentiful and delicious in the UK. The Gadget Show may have told them it is a recipe service, instead of explaining that it is more for quick answers to pressing questions from cooks.

The Brits like Indian food because after spending about three hundred years living in India they developed a taste for it.

It will settle eventually. The British have a large population of Indians living in their country and have adopted Indian cuisine as their own. Curry is the most popular dish in the UK! Indian food is very spicy (full of spice) and they were probably tired of eating bland, boiled meats and vegetables for the last 1000 years.
