    Curry for Tea - How I make it??

    Wanting to make curry from scratch while baby sleeping. Have got:

    Ginger, corriander, chillies, panch phoran, fenugreek leaves and garam masala. Ohh and lime and garlic.

    Was aiming for something with tomatoes not too hot that I could add coconut milk for the kids. Anyone know what to do?? How much of these things to add?

    What i'd do is just experiment, fry your meat etc, and add in a couple of tins of chopped tomatoes, and start adding different spices and see how it goes...

    lol, that's just me though, don't trust me, it could all end up a disaster..:w00t:

    Ugg think I got wrong type of corriander ... i got fresh leaves? Been over loads of sites and they got cumin and tumeric which I not got!!

    Could go drastically wrong if I just fling stuff in??

    Could do, but if you follow a recipe and only have a few things missing, it'll probably turn out ok, I never seem to have 'all' the ingredients for any recipe and they always seem to be fine, just improvise...

    Improvising when cooking is a boy thing

    tescos curry sauce is 6p a can

    My favourite 30 minute curry

    1 small onion sliced
    1 inch of ginger grated
    2 garlic cloves crushed
    2 tbsp garam masala
    1 chilli pepper de-seeded and sliced
    450g chicken breast diced
    1 red pepper de-seeded and diced(if you don't have it leave it out)
    1 can chopped tomatoes or fresh ones chopped up
    2 tbsp chopped coriander

    Heat oil in a large frying pan, fry onion, ginger, garlic, chilli pepper and garam masala for 3-4 minutes

    Add chicken and fry for 8-10 minutes then add red pepper and fry for a further 2-3 minutes

    Pour in can of tomatoes or fresh chopped tomatoes with a little chicken stock, simmer over a low heat for 10 minutes

    Add chopped coriander and serve with rice

    dry fry yer spices first make sure they don't burn but not garam masala you add that near the end.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence :whistling:


    Baby woke now anyway so gonna have to wing it :whistling: :giggle:

    Thanks for recipe harib0uk and tips jen.

    Gaia,

    Hope the curry turned out ok.. Fresh coriander is always best for flavour. Put some in while cooking (will almost dissappear) and then a bit more chopped on top for garnish & flavour.

    I love making curry and hardly ever follow the recipes now. Just get the basic ingredients (go to a speciality store if you can for Ghee, asafoetida etc ..or make your own) then create. Finally getting our two kids into curries too!!:thumbsup:

    ya really need to get some cumin though
