Curry is mostly a combination of spices. The manner in which you make your curry is what determines if its healthy or not.

Curry powder comes in either a mild or spicy form. Love having spicy curry? Then grab the spicy form of the curry powder or request your curry meal to be spicy.

IS CURRY GLUTEN FREE

Herbs and spices are naturally gluten-free. It is very tricky when it comes to curry spice or any other spices because some manufacturers will add a non-gluten anti-caking agent to prevent caking. Also, look at the labels and keep an eye out for one of these ingredients: calcium silicate, silicon dioxide or sodium aluminum silica.
