Chicken tikka masala is one of the most ordered curries at curry houses around the UK. It's mild and great for kids and those that don't like spicy curries. You can add chicken or the main ingredient of your choice to this tikka masala curry sauce.
Mild, creamy and sweet with the subtle flavour of coconut. This curry sauce is very popular with kids and those just starting on their curry journey. You can add chicken or the main ingredient of your choice to this Korma curry sauce.
Pasanda curries are mild sweet and nutty. This one curry sauce recipe ticks all the boxes. Although chicken is the most popular main ingredient, you can add the main ingredient of your choice to this mild curry sauce.
This curry sauce is made with pickling spices. Achar means pickle and it is deliciously spicy without being spicy hot. This is pretty close to what some would call a medium hot curry sauce. Feel free to add less chilli if you like.

I want to make these famous curry sauce recipes as straight forward and easy for you as possible.
So I filmed them to give you a better idea about how each curry sauce is cooked.

No need to stick to the curry sauce rules!
Just because a curry sauce is listed under mild, medium or spicy, it doesn’t mean you have to stick to that!
A mild korma could be spiced up by adding finely chopped chillies to taste for example. That is the only way I would eat a korma!
A spicy vindaloo could be toned down to a mild curry. Just leave most or all of the chillies and chilli powder out of your vindaloo curry sauce and you will still have an amazing, mild version of the vindaloo.
Bhuna curries are known for being quite dry, perfect for soaking up and eating the curry with naans or chapattis. You can make this curry sauce with the main ingredient of your choice as described in the post.
Keema (minced meat) is delicious added to almost any curry. This version of keema is great in it's own right and medium spiced. Feel free to mix some keema into any of these curry sauce recipes though. If it sounds good, do it!
Want to take the spice level up a few notches?
Look no further than the following curries. Again, you can tone down the heat of in these curry sauce if you want to.
Dhansak sauce is often medium heat but I like them spicy. This curry sauce recipe will get you a curry that is good and spicy but not mind blowingly so. It offers a delicious combo of heat with the essential dhal to calm it all down.

I have a silly question... I often get indian "curry" at cheapy mall restaurants that is actually quite tasty, but I have no idea what "type" of curry that would be when they're all given semi-official names. Any help?
