Often toted as one of the most complex cookery endeavours, a curry is an exotic taste sensation and a great way to fine-tune your kitchen skills on a weekend. The following six steps are a “choose your own adventure” style curry recipe that is both idiot proof and bound to impress whomever you choose to fill the 2-3 person serving suggestion.
You will need –
Two medium sized onions (diced)
An Inch of ginger (grated)
Three cloves of garlic (finely diced)
Veggies: potatoes, broccoli, snow peas etc.
Any curry paste you desire
400g of your choice of animal (beef, chicken or lamb are the usual suspects)
Rice or rotti bread, or both!
Step one - Start by throwing your onions into a medium flame pan with oil. Be sure to keep those onions moist by using any type of oil (preferably not engine). As the onions begin to wilt, toss in your garlic and ginger.
Step two - Mix in one generous tablespoon of your preferred curry paste (anything Thai & red is your best bet) along with a few good squirts of fish sauce and let it simmer for a minute. Make sure that the mixture doesn’t dry out in the heat, if it does start to become dry add oil or water to moisten it up.
Step three - Chuck in your preferred animal and stir together until the meat begins to brown.
Step four - Then add enough chicken stock so that the mixture is submerged, throw in your veggies and cook on high for five minutes. Once the stock begins to boil turn the flame down to medium and let it simmer for a further 10 minutes.
Step five - This is the stage where you can experiment. If you have used chicken, a can of coconut cream will go nicely. If you have beef or lamb in your concoction, a can of diced tomatoes will come up a treat.
Step six - Now simmer for a further 15-20 minutes, adding more stock if the mixture becomes to thick for your taste.
Now serve your curry up with rice or rotti and your done…
