When you think about curries, the first thing that springs to mind are probably the rich tomato-based fragrant Indian classics that are loved by people from different walks of life the world over. But it isn't just Indian curries that are worth taking note of. There are some outstanding offerings from other countries' cuisines as well. Lebanese and Thai curries, for instance, are well worth checking out. For people living in Singapore, Deliveroo can send these amazing dishes to your door whenever you get a craving for them. All it takes is a few mouse clicks.
1. Chicken Tikka Masala
You can't have a list of top curries without mentioning one of the Indian classics, and a fan favourite in Singapore is definitely the Chicken Tikka Masala. It's bold, bright, and instantly recognisable, but its main forte is the fact that it is just bursting with a complex combination of flavours. The chicken is marinated in an aromatic blend of classic Indian spices which include cumin, ginger, cinnamon and pepper, and it is left to soak up these flavours for as long as possible. If you think that already sounds mouth-watering enough, it is then cooked in the rich and creamy masala sauce. This classic dish is ideal for any meal, at any time.
Many of our Lebanese restaurants in Singapore, like Qasr Grille and Mezze Bar, offer up delicious tajines. Tajines are not usually thought of as curries, and are more like stews or casseroles. But there are similar spices and cooking methods involved with making them. They are also absolutely packed with flavour in the same way curries are. Some of the rich and pungent spices involved in making this slow-cooked dish include ginger, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, and saffron. These are all aspects that can be found in what you might consider a more traditional curry. As the meat and sauce is slowly cooked in this complex array of spices, the flavours permeate every inch of the dish, with striking results that treat the taste buds. There are numerous Lebanese restaurants in Singapore, which also serve up classics like Kawarmas and Koftas.
3. Massaman Curry
Massaman curry is a southern Thai classic, and you can try it at the Thai Express at Bedok Mall or get it delivered to your doorstep with Deliveroo. The curry is rich and creamy and is usually made with beef, potatoes, coconut milk and peanuts. It is delicately spiced with cardamom pods, cinnamon, star anise, palm sugar, and chilli. Massaman curries are have a slight kick to them, but even those without a tolerance for spicy food should be able to enjoy them. They are slightly different to more traditional Thai curries, and have a heavy Islamic influence. The Thai restaurants in Singapore serve up other curries as well, including sweet Penangs and Thai Green Curries.
