People often ask, "What do I do with the curry powder? How do I make a curry?" Here is my easy curry template.
Oil: Coconut or Ghee
Alliums: Onion, Garlic or Shallots
Protein: Tofu, Shrimp, Chicken, etc.
Vegetables: Cauliflower, Broccoli, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, etc.
Base: Coconut Milk, Tomato Sauce &/or Broth
Garnish: Cilantro, Basil, Yogurt, Pumpkin Seeds, etc.
I use a couple of TSBPs of oil and melt it in a large skillet. Once melted add the 1-2 TBSPs of curry powder and let it bloom in the warm oil for a couple of minutes stirring it to avoid burning.
Add alliums and sauté for a few minutes.
Add the protein and cook until just shy of being fully cooked.
Add the vegetables. First the ones that take longer to cook such as root vegetables. Then add the softer vegetables such as peppers and squash. Cook for a few minutes.
Add the Base. I use about 30 oz of liquid. This depends on how thick you want the curry to be.
Let the curry cook for 10 or so more minutes.
Serve over a grain such as rice, faro, quinoa, etc.
Garnish with herbs, nuts, seeds &/or yogurt.
