Who Knew Curry Could Be So Simple?

Crumbs & Creativity | Curry

Last night I made 2 dinners.

I had already started a marinade for butter chicken, a favorite of my husband’s but I really wasn’t in the mood for that. When I ran to the store to pick up a bag of rice for the butter chicken I picked up a bottle of curry powder and decided I wanted curry for myself for dinner.

Totally on a whim, never made it before and damn it was good. I even impressed myself.

Ingredients
2 tablespoons of curry powder
1 red onion
2 potatoes
1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar
1 cup of water (or chicken stock)
salt & pepper to taste 

I knew this much about curry, it usually has potatoes, chicken, onions and carrots. I didn’t grab carrots at the store so I figured it would be okay without. It was. I read several recipes and then played around and did this.

How to Make It:

Mix the curry with a bit of water so it makes a paste and then set it aside. In my dutch over I heated a bit of oil and added the onion at a medium high heat. I sautéed them until they were starting to get clear and then threw in the curry paste. 

Swirl the paste around a bit so that it breaks up and then add your chicken and coat it in the paste and cook for about 10 minutes. The chicken doesn’t have to be fully cooked, but it should be browned.

Add 1 cup of water, the potatoes, the sugar and then salt and pepper. Put a lid on it and put your heat to low and let it cook for about 20 minutes (or until your potatoes are soft).

I served it over rice (even though there were already potatoes on the plate. I know, carb central).

And. It. Was. Good.

I’m so proud of myself for this one.
