5 Restaurants Across Canada Offering Must Order Curry

Defining Indian-style dishes containing sauces, spices and even gravies, Curry is renowned comfort food that provides an extra special warmth once the temperatures drop.

Served as wet or dry, you’ll often find that curries inspired by Northern India feature flavours like garam masala and fenugreek while more southern takes integrate coconut milk or tamarind. For a Thai twist on the versatile feature, restaurant chefs may include green chillis, red chillies and lemongrass, as found in red, green and yellow curries, respectively.

No matter how hot or mild you take your curry, join chilly Canadians everywhere this week and warm up with a curry dish!
