I've only had curry once or twice and one of those times, it was from a box that I picked up at the grocery store. It stank. It looked like goo. Just the smell of it made me gag - literally. When I see pictures of curry or see someone make it on TV, the texture or consistency of it just doesn't look good. But, I am trying to make an effort to eat more things that I don't like and expand my palette. (With the exception of mayonnaise. I don't like it. Never will. And have absolutely no desire to try.)
Anyway, I found a recipe for Easy Chicken Curry in the More With Less Cookbook, and decided to try it. I knew my husband would try it and most likely like it, it was just my tastebuds on the line. Guess what?? It turned out great! It didn't have that nasty smell from the box curry. It smelled good. And it was more saucey, not goopy.
So, this is what I did...
Finally, add 1 tablespoon curry powder, salt, and pepper.
Let it simmer for 45 minutes and put over rice.
It was really good. I still have a little mental hiccup with curry, but that's just because I didn't like it for so long. But like all food, homemade makes a HUGE difference!
