Curries you should cook

On the anniversary of The Curry Incident, think outside the usual spiced gravies. After all, 'National Curry Day' bubbled from the need to think outside the usual pots.

Curries are an ultimate comfort food, and are perfect for entertaining and family-style serving. We’ve rounded up three flavourful and easy to make curries that can be on the table in under an hour. These curries are simple, even for the beginner cook, and the level of heat and spice can be easily adjusted to your preference. We are looking to achieve harmony here...
