Curry recipes that can you make at home, including Rick Stein's cod curry, the Hairy Bikers' king prawn curry and ever popular Thai green curry among the recipes that are so much better homemade.

The thought of making a curry from scratch for the first time might seem daunting, but it's actually quick and easy to put together a delicious and fragrant curry, whether you're looking to make a no-fuss midweek meal or you're expecting a crowd at the weekend.

Curries take many forms and originated in South Asia and Southeast Asia, with each region having its own variation on classic dishes, from India to Thailand, Sri Lanka and beyond.

The base for making curry paste is similar in many recipes so once you have bought the spices, you'll have them to use time and time again, adjusting the flavours and ingredients once you're confident in making your favourite recipes. Hold back on some of the spice if you don't like it hot, and vice versa if you love a meal with a kick. Swap vegetables depending on what you have in the fridge. It's hard to go wrong. Many curries start with a simple base of onion, garlic and ginger, to which you can add a mix of spices, from fennel seeds that release an instant aroma to ground cumin, coriander and vivid tumeric, much-loved by nutritionists for its superfood status.

The key ingredients can vary. Curry recipes can be made with chicken, beef or lamb, or are based around seafood such as fish or prawns, or are vegetarian, using potato, lentils or even eggs as a staple ingredient, which makes a filling but healthier option. Whatever you pick, pair with naan bread or basmati rice for a wonderful meal that will fill your kitchen with the aroma of warm spices.
