Everyone has their own opinion and many purists hate the very idea that this dish exists. For many restaurant and takeaway customers it is the go to meal when ordering a curry and I have several friends who eat nothing else in a curry house.

Curry Powder Mix

Curry powder is a mixture of spices based on South Asian cuisine.  A similar spice blend exists in the north, called garam masala.  Although you can buy ready made curry powder, it’s easy to make your own using everyday spices you will find at your local supermarket.

Usually prepared with king prawns, lamb or chicken. However, this curry can also be vegetarian where potatoes or cauliflower can be the main ingredient to sit alongside the onions.

Stewed vegetables with a spicy taste.

A success or a disaster?

The style of curry that people eat in the UK is not as popular in Holland. (the writer of this blog) has never eaten a British style curry dish so far in his life, so he doesn’t know how it tastes or if it is good, but what he does know is that it is a very famous dish in the UK, so it must be good.
