This is from Dinner: A Love Story (affiliate link). You can find her blog here. I enjoy her writing, as I mentioned before and her recipes are quite good too! I was inspired to try her “starter curry” recipe because my youngest, who loves curry, just moved into her first apartment. I love cooking Indian curries with Patak’s Curry Pastes (affiliate link) but I thought a good curry that just uses curry powder would be good for my daughter to try cooking. I cooked up a batch when I knew she would be home in a few days and sent the leftovers back with her to try.
This is a mild curry. If you like a spicier curry, you can try this curry recipe. I think next time I make this I’ll cook up the cilantro stems along with some fresh ginger and a chili pepper like I normally do. But this was good, too! Just mild. I changed up a few ingredients, using up the whole can of coconut milk rather than being left with a partial can and adding more garlic.
When I pack up anything rice I either put all the curry/stew on the bottom and the rice on the top (which doesn’t make as pretty a picture!) or push the rice up to one side. This keeps the rice from absorbing all the sauce.
