Top 10 Colourful and Unusual Curry Recipes

When it comes to curries I am weak. Anything more than mild and I won’t touch it. So for me, it is curries like korma, lamb pasanda and mutter paneer. But I do want to try to expand my horizons when it comes to curries, so I thought I would take a look at what I think is…

Yellow is the choice for me. Korma is what I normally have but this Thai yellow are both very mild and very tasty curries. Made using green chillies, ginger, nutmeg and my personal favourite coconut milk.

This meal is a right mix up, and I don’t know what I find the worst! Is it the black colour, or is it that rather unsettled egg on top of it?!? Sadly there is no making guide to this, but I thought I would include it because of its amazing colour, showing that people really will eat all sorts!

Orange Curry of Halibut

7 – Orange Curry

Made with super tasty halibut cut into large cubes, onions, garlic, tomatoes and anchovies, this is one very fishy curry. But as I am a lover of fish I am sure it is a taste sensation as well.

I love cabbage! And this very purple coloured curry is rammed full of it. Also containing green peas, onions and green Chillies it is a fully packed meal idea.

It has been proven that us humans will often “eat with our eyes” rather than our mouths, and that is where this blue (but apparently very tasty) curry comes into it. Severed only in Tokyo’s Tea Room 2525 it is a rare treat indeed.

Spicy Thai Red Curry Chicken

4 – Red Curry Chicken

This one might be a little too hot and spicy for me to try, but the vivid red colour looks amazing and the chicken really seems to soak it in.

I do love a nice lentil curry, and this does look like a good one! Apparently it does take quite a lot of prep time but worth trying if you have the spare time.

Now, this looks like something I would be willing to try! Made with large, chunky bits of pork butt it apparently has a super creamy taste.

Nothing else was going to be my number 1 other than one of the worlds most loved curries. This meat-free one from quorn is perfect for the whole family and can cost a lot less than many meat based ones!

  4. Haha, it’s seems SO out of place! Maybe it’d be more comfortable with the blue curry (which I wouldn’t be surprised to find tasting like cotton candy or bubble gum)…. or, simply next to a few strips of bacon. 😀

  5. I’m with you Russell, I don’t do hot. A little mild is fine and if I could find these curries in a more mild form, I’d love to try them. Here in the good old USA, curries aren’t as popular as in the U.K. To try things from other cultures, you usually have to go to a restaurant that specializes in them. Thanks for the links to recipes, I can watch how much heat goes into it when I make it myself. We eat more Armenian, Middle East food – my husband is Armenian and their food is flavorful but not spicy hot.

  6. *LOL* I am with you 100%, it is the egg on top that just makes it so wrong. I have to say that I didn’t know about red curries being good for blocked sinuses, good fact for everyone there.

  7. yum, yum, yum. I’m with you on the mild curries, but these really do look delicious. I’m a bit dubious about the blue one though. What has happened to your like button? I want to like but it’s not there. Oh, I have just read the above comments and see now. I will just have to leave a witty comment every time.

  8. I absolutely love curry as well, red is my favourite (and useful if you’ve got blocked sinuses!) But I have to say, damn that black curry is nauseating! I could never eat something that looks like that. The egg yolk floating like a disgusting ball of mucus really isn’t helping either.

  9. Well… Pizza is pretty beloved by people here in the Great White North. A hockey game on the television with pizza and beer is pretty much a national pastime here!

    We eat a lot of comfort food too. Slow cooker dishes, deep fried stuff, etc.

    We do not have dishes like blood pudding, but we do have bangers and mash (although only home-made).

    I have a deep fryer and love to make eggs and chips for my friend who was born in England and moved here with here family when she was young.

    I need to stop now… when I start writing about food I soon start wanting to eat food!

    Ciao for now!

  10. First off Russell, it looks like you found your mailing list! Yeah!

    It’s an interesting thing, but here in Canada curry is not beloved as it is across the pond from us. I watch British TV and whenever food comes up, Curry is always being eaten by someone.

    Having said that I should point out that I have no tolerance for spicy foods, especially Curry, which I did try once. Ohh! Hot Hot!

    With the exception of the Black Curry (Gross!) I would be happy to taste them all… even the blue stuff.

    Another great post Russell, keep up the great work!

  11. *LOL* It is just the user name. As for the like button it is gone for a while until I can get it to work again. Being on wordpress.org is not all fun and games at all.

  12. Who is gus22 and what have you done with Russell Deasley? And the ‘like’ button?
    It all looks pretty fab except the blue stuff – What did they use to make it that colour? Whatever it is I know it isn’t a food product, so that’s not going in my tum!!

  13. I think I should visit yours more, as it is normal good food for thought. Now I am more settled here on .org I will drop by more I promise.

  14. I was going to all the same thing but I read the previous comment. It’s a great post, I would like to try the blue curry. It totally intrigued me. 🙂

  15. That’s a shame. I often tweet so at least that way you’ll know I’ve visited. I don’t always have time to comment which is why I like the like button. Perhaps I should just leave a quick comment saying ‘Visited’!

  16. Sadly I can’t get it to work with my new theme on wordpress.org, but I appreciate you taking the time to read the post none the less.

Which one did you like?
