3 Best ways to Reheat your Leftover Curry

Curry is a delicious food, but a downside to it is that it’s easy to cook too much of it. Big families often cook curry in big portions, which results in leftovers that nobody wants to throw away.

Luckily, curry is very easy to reheat using one of the three methods below.


Using a microwave to reheat leftover curry

Microwaving your curry is not the most optimal way to reheat your meal, but it can still be done. Heat is less evenly distributed, which may results in some parts still being cold when other parts are ready to eat.

  1. Place your leftover curry in a dish that’s safe for in the microwave.
  2. Place your dish inside the microwave and put it to a low to medium heat so that it can reheat slowly.
  3. Check every one or two minutes if the dish is warm enough, and optionally stir it a little.
  4. When all parts of your curry are warm enough, you can take it out of the microwave.

Reheating your curry in a skillet

Using the stovetop is a great way of reheating leftover curry. It’s also really simple, and does not take longer than a few minutes.

  1. Take out a skillet and add a bit of oil of your liking inside.
  2. Let the skillet heat up to a low to medium heat.
  3. Add your curry inside the warm skillet.
  4. Wait anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes, depending on the size of your curry, while you keep stirring your meal.
  5. Let the reheated dish cool down for a few minutes, and it’s ready to eat.

Use your oven to reheat curry

If you do not have a microwave or a skillet, you could also use your oven for reheating a curry. It’s a process that takes longer than the two aforementioned, but the taste will be great.

  1. Place your leftover curry in a (covered) dish that’s safe for in the oven.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Once preheated, place your curry inside the oven to start the reheating process.
  4. Leave the curry in the oven for about 12 to 15 minutes.
  5. To check if it’s ready, you can either test if it’s warm all throughout or by using a thermometer.
  6. Wait for about five minutes before serving it, as it tastes better after it cools down a little.
