Curry is a staple in many countries, especially Asian countries and in India. Often cooked with a variety of aromatic spices, many curry recipes are naturally Whole30-compliant (except for the ones which use dairy and soy-based ingredients). Even those curries that need a little fiddling can often easily be made compliant with some fine-tuning and coconut milk substitutions.
