Top tips:

  • Always marinate your meat for a curry if you have time - this allows the flavours to penetrate the meat before cooking - resulting in a better punch of flavour.

  • Most curries start on a base of garlic and/or ginger - always have these staples to hand!

  • Curries are completely customisable in terms of flavour, texture and ingredients - add extra veggies, change up the meat, add more or less water, extra spices, add yoghurt or cream... its up to you!

  • All of our curry recipes can be made vegetarian by using meat free & dairy free substitutes - unsure on what to use? Just pop us a message... we are more than happy to help.
