1. Curry Bread
If curry is paired with carbs you can never go wrong! Curry bread is wrapped and dough and crumbs and then deep fried to a crispy finish. The crispy texture of the outside and the curry inside make a wonderful combination. You can find these are convenience stores and Japanese bakeries! (They are even better it they are warm!)
