This creamy and comforting curry is rich, delicious, and warming, perfect for a chilly night. We recommend making your own curry powder for the most flavor (here is our recipe), but you can also use store bought if you’re pressed for time. For those that like spice, we recommend adding ¼ tsp cayenne pepper to the curry powder for extra heat to warm you up.
