It doesn't matter who you are or where you're from, curries are enjoyed by so many cultures all over the world. Whether it's India, Thailand, China, Japan, or anywhere else, each of these Asian cultures have their own unique blends of herbs, spices, and meat – or lack of – which are distinctive to each individual country.
In recent years, Indian curries have gained immense popularity throughout the world, with the national dish of the UK now being Tikka Masala. It's not very British, but they just love it so much! Luckily, Indian takeaway is also popular throughout the UAE, which is why we're so lucky to have so many amazing places right here in Dubai. You can order whatever you want at any time, and you just know that it'll be authentic.
It's not just Indian, though – here are some of the most mind-blowing varieties of curry as found across the Emirate, as chosen by us.
1. Soy To Chutney: Butter Chicken
Kicking off with an Indian favourite, Soy to Chutney knows how to do Butter Chicken extra well. It's especially great for fans of mild curry, because its mind-blowing abilities lie in the taste, not the spice. Although Indian food can be known for being pretty hot, this isn't always the case. In fact, one of the most popular dishes from the nation is Rogan Josh, known for its signature red colour but deceivingly mild taste. It's creamy, it's packed full of flavour, and ultimately – it's delicious. What more could you possibly want?
2. Fuchsia Urban Thai: Pineapple Coconut Curry
Now, Thai food, on the other hand, can be creamy with more than a little kick! This dish from Fuchsia Urban Thai is a little bit unique and special, but trust us, adding pineapple into the mix really works. It's long debated whether pineapple goes on pizza (guess that's up to you), but one thing we know for sure is that it most definitely goes in curry. This red curry is full of fragrant coconut, pine, and bamboo, along with a healthy dose of chicken. The pineapple gives it a fruity twist, and it's unlike anything you've had before.
3. The Noodle House: Thai Green Curry (Vegetarian)
Are you a vegetarian? Want a curry to blow your mind, but haven't quite found the right one? Don't worry, there are some amazing choices out there which don't rely on meat as the star of the show. In fact, Thai cooking relies heavily on the sauce as opposed to the things they put inside, so this traditional Green Curry from the Noodle House won't let you down. It's a little on the mild side, but there's such an intricate blend in there that there's absolutely no room for disappointment.
Curries can be some of the most exciting foods around, so never settle for one that's mediocre! You'll find plenty to suit whatever it is you're craving, right here on Deliveroo.
