Curry is the most famous and the most delicious Indian dish. Learn five different variations of this traditional Indian deliciousness.


There are many varieties of curries, depending on the region, cultural tradition, religious practices, and even family preferences. The traditional curry recipe dates back to thousands of years ago when only three basic ingredients were used to prepare curry: ginger, garlic, and turmeric.

How the curry will be prepared, served and the ingredients used vary from region to region. But, according to overall Indian tradition, curry is served with steamed rice and various Indian bread (such as naan or roti). Are you curious about our pick? Here they are:

Aloo Curry


Aloo curry is one of the quickest and easiest curry recipes. It's spicy but moderately hot and packed with aroma and flavor. This curry is potato and chickpeas-based, vegan and gluten-free, and it can be served as breakfast.

Tikka Masala


Loved by almost every foodie, Tikka Masala is another traditional curry from India. The most common version of Tikka Masala is made with chicken (called Chicken Tikka Masala). The chicken is marinated and then grilled in Tandoor, giving the thick gravy sauce a smoky flavor.



The name vindaloo derives from the Portuguese, vin comes from vinho (wine), and aloo comes from alho (garlic); these are the two main ingredients that make Vindaloo curry so unique. The original recipe is made with pork, and it comes from Goa. It's the perfect curry for those fond of spicy food.

Chana Masala


Chana Masala is a vegetarian curry made with chickpeas and tomatoes. As the main meal, it's popularly eaten with deep-fried north Indian bread called Bhatura. This simple yet flavorful dish can be served as a snack, as breakfast, or any time of the day, really.

Palak Paneer

Don't be fooled by its dubious color — Palak Paneer is incredibly tasty. What gives its greenish look is the puree spinach gravy. The soothing aroma and savory taste of spinach gravy and cottage cheese is a must-try, especially for vegetarians.
