10 Unique Curry Recipes You Need in Your Life

Cyd Converse

Whether it's a quick and creamy curry soup, a traditional Thai curry or a flavorful Indian chicken curry dish, I have long had a deeply rooted love for curry. 

Curry refers to both a ground spice blend made with turmeric and cumin along with other spices (not unlike garam masala) as well as a style of dish.

The signature quality of curry, as a spice blend or referring to a specific recipe, is a deeply spiced flavor profile with notes of cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg.

If you're looking for something new to try, these unique curry recipes pack tons of flavor into each and every bite. You need to give them a try!
