This dish is essentially a chicken and lentil stew, cooked until all the flavours have perfectly combined. Curry powder forms the base of most of the dishes on this list, including this one, but did you know it’s not a single spice? While curry leaves can be used to flavour dishes, curry powder is actually a blend of spices. For a similar, vegetarian option, try our Red Lentil and Tofu Curry.
Lentils are another staple of Indian cuisine. Due to religious beliefs, many Indian cuisines are based on wholly vegetarian diets. Lentils provide a good source of protein, as do other legumes, and help to round out a dish. There are different varieties that cook down to different consistencies and texture, making some great for soups and patties, and others good for salads. This soup is best with small, red lentils because they dissolve into the soup to thicken it and add texture.
India is known for having a large vegetarian population, but it’s actually a country with many cultures, religions, and cuisines. This beef curry is made with traditional Indian aromatics, including ginger, turmeric, and garlic. It might be more of a Western take on Indian cuisine, but you certainly won’t know it once you dig in!
This dish is cheating a little bit, since it’s inspired by Indian flavours and uses Chinese techniques. However, Indian cooking is very much based around spices, which is why so many dishes are slow, stewed curries. They might seem similar, but the secret is in the curry blend, and every seasoned Indian chef has their own secret recipe.
