The 12 tastiest curry recipes

‘The Stew’ by Alison Roman

Anyone on Instagram has certainly heard the hype surrounding #thestew. After Alison Roman shared the curry, people copied it en masse – including their own variations, of course. The base is simple: coconut milk, chickpeas and a good load of turmeric. But add fresh ginger, garlic, chili flakes and a dollop of Greek yogurt and you have perfect comfort food .

Chicken katsu curry

This chicken katsu curry was one of the most viewed recipes on Culy in 2020. So it cannot be missed in this list! For those who don’t know katsu yet: that’s the Japanese version of the schnitzel. Combine the crispy  katsu with a creamy curry and you can’t believe your luck.

Vegan (n) katsu curry with crispy eggplant and sweet potato

Prefer no meat? You might as well replace that Japanese schnitzel with fried aubergine and sweet potato. Yes, we said it : it really is just as good as a traditional  katsu . We mainly made the curry with lots of spices. Add a quick salad  and voilà : vegans don’t have to miss anything.

Green curry with meatballs, spinach and zucchini

Curry is often made with chicken, fish, tofu and/or chickpeas. Our version with meatballs doesn’t quite fit in that list, but it’s nice that it is! It’s relatively liquid, so it’s reminiscent of a good soup with balls – but with the addition of a good dose of spice .

Indian butter chicken curry

After a Japanese trip we always come back to the queen of curries: India! And then of course you first think of a good butter chicken. Tender chicken, lots of herbs and some crème frache for extra creaminess: you can’t go wrong with this recipe.

Butter masala with paneer

The  butter chicken  also has a vegan sister: the  butter massala . In it, we use paneer , a slightly sour cheese that is widely used in Indian cuisine. For some extra crunch, garnish the fragrant curry with crispy cashews.

saag bread

Paneer can also be found in  saag paneer , a well-known Indian curry based on spinach and cheese. Simple, but oh so delicious! Do you even want to make it vegan? Culy’s Maaike recently made a version with tofu instead of cheese, which you first bake with a lot of turmeric. Also very nice!

Thai red curry with squid and peanuts

Yellow curry, red or green curry: the possibilities are endless in Thailand. Lemongrass is often added to all variants, which gives the curries a slightly fresher touch than, for example, Indian variants. To this red curry we added squid; the best way to unpack.

Peanut butter curry with cauliflower and chickpeas

Cookies , brownies , baked oatmeal … You can stir peanut butter into everything. And so we do! But did you know that the stuff is not only tasty in sweet recipes, but also in savory ones? This peanut butter curry with cauliflower, bean sprouts and rempejek (Indonesian spicy peanut cookies) proves that.

Indian pumpkin curry with caraway seeds

This warm pumpkin curry also stands out because of its richness in spices – you don’t have to add much more than pumpkin, chickpeas and coconut milk. Delicious with rice, but also very good with naan for dipping in! Make an extra large portion so that you have a good autumn lunch.

Salmon curry with noodles and cherry tomatoes

Don’t feel like doing the dishes tonight (or even loading the dishwasher)? Then you must have this salmon curry, for which you only have to get one pan dirty. The recipe is also useful for using up leftovers; basically you can throw in any vegetable you like.

Summer curry with corn, tomato and tamarind

We dubbed this recipe ‘summer’, but you can actually eat it all year round. At least it’s tasty enough for that! The secret is tamarind paste, which gives a fresh acidity to the dish. That’s especially nice in combination with the fresh, crunchy corn. And oh yes, he is vegan(s) too.
