I usually enjoy medium curries.I have never liked REALLY hot spices, but the milder ones seem to let the other flavours come through the various ingredients in a curry. When I was a child, mum used to cook gorgeous curries, and she included pineapple as an ingredient.I just love what this adds to a rich medium heat beef curry.She also liked to cook it the day before we would be eating it so that the flavours really melded beautifully. I have been so lucky to have learned from such a great cook!
I used to love hot curries, my favourite being vindaloo. Now I have to have a mild one because of my dry mouth. If I have anything hot now with chilli in it, it makes my whole mouth, gums and tongue bleed, and I really mean bleed. I do miss the taste and enjoyment of a hot curry.
We used to be able to eat hot curries, in our younger days, but now unfortunately, they have to be mild. Chicken is my favourite. I don't buy them while dinning out, but I do often make them at home, mostly chicken or beef ones.
Hot, medium & mild. Or no heat at all, just spices. It depends on which dish I'm making, & time of year! Tend to go for the hotter ones in winter - I know, meant to be the other way around but sometimes a hot curry on a cold day is nice.
