    Explore curry culture at Indian restaurants on the Gold Coast

    It's good to know what kind of heat you can expect when you order a curry. Many Indian restaurants on the Gold Coast will have an indication of the spiciness of each dish to help you choose well but here are some tips to point you in the right direction. The mildest curry is usually thought to be the korma. This creamy, coconut concoction is made with almond flour and has a delicate, almost sweet taste. It is served in most of the Indian restaurants on the Gold Coast. Other curries with a little more spice but still considered mild are pasandas and tikkas. The passanda also features almonds and is marinated in spices and served with tomatoes and cream. Tikka has meat that has marinated with spices and yoghurt, and is often cooked in a clay tandoor oven.

    Try these medium strength curries at the Gold Coast's Indian restaurants

    If you prefer a slightly bigger chilli hit, you might want to consider a balti, bhuna or danask. The spices in these dishes will certainly aren’t shy but most people are able to enjoy the heat without too much trouble. Biryani and Jalfrezi ramp the spice levels up a bit, biryanis generally features mixed rice with a little chicken or lamb, while jalfrezis focus more on the meat element, with marinated chicken or lamb cooked in a mixture of spices and oil to make a thick and quite dry sauce. The heat of jalfrezis can vary quite a lot in the Gold Coast's Indian restaurants depending on the number and potency of the green chillies used but you can always cool it down with a little yoghurt.

    Hot curries for the brave in Indian restaurants on the Gold Coast

    Feeling brave? The Gold Coast's Indian restaurants have a few challenges for you. The vindaloo has gained something of a reputation for being a truly scorching curry. It is most closely associated with Goa but has Portuguese origins. Portuguese sailors brought carne de vinha d'alhos to Goa, which consisted of meat preserved in garlic and wine. This was corrupted to 'vindaloo' and local chefs added chillies and palm vinegar. If even this can't match your taste for spice, you might find one or two Indian restaurants on the Gold Coast serving the fearsome phall. This searing dish typically uses hotter habanero or scotch bonnet chillies along with ginger and fennel seeds. It is cooked with tomatoes to give a thick curry that extreme spice fans will love.
