Homemade Curry Night – Top 5 Classic Curries

Now the weather is getting cooler, it’s the perfect excuse for a curry night at home with friends and family – ‘Make your own’ curry night! So much goes into a great curry with all the different herbs and spices, so they can be really fun to make together and you can make a whole night of it.

Homemade curry is also much tastier and healthier than a takeaway so next time you feel like a curry night, try a ‘make your own’. Need some inspiration? With curry in mind, here is a mix of classic Indian and Thai recipes to try.

Thai Green Curry is a beautifully aromatic and creamy curry, best served with chicken and rice. It’s also fairly versatile as the selection of vegetables can be adapted to suit the fragrant flavours, and you can use either chicken breast fillets or chicken thighs.

Another popular Thai dish is Thai Red Curry. This recipe takes just 15 minutes to prepare, with an impressive selection of spices and flavours, giving it that vibrant, rich red colour. As with the green curry, red lends itself well to a variety of meats. Have you ever tried a Thai red meatball curry?

Tender pieces of lamb shoulder cooked in a spicy tomato sauce, Jalfrezi is one of the hotter and richer curries, using fresh chilli generously.

Korma is a rich, creamy and slightly sweet curry best served with chunks of chicken, and on the more mild end of the curry spectrum. The creaminess of Korma means it’s very calorific, so why not try a slightly lighter version with just as much flavour from The Hairy Bikers.

Rogan Josh is another popular Indian curry and really easy to make at home with this great one-pot recipe from BBC Good Food.

Most curry flavours go well with all meats so you can mix it up! What is your favourite curry?
