One African curry is Ras el Hanout, translated as “top of the shop” and contains a mixture of the best spices. This is Moroccan style curry and can be made with a wide variety of ingredients.

In Jamaica, their specialty is spicy goat curry made with peppercorns, scotch bonnet chiles, allspice and spicy mustard.
