I heard once that there are as many ways to make curry as there are Indian cooks. You can buy a bottle of curry powder already prepared, or try making your own using some combination of chilli powder, cumin, coriander, cardamon, tumeric, garlic, onion, pepper and likely others. Mix it up to your liking, chances are that some indian cook somewhere has tried the same combination. Or, try a prepared brand and "doctor" it with your own spices to adjust for your own tastes. I tend to like the really hot curry kind sometimes, and a milder Garam Masala other times. Since it is mostly ground-up seeds, it doesn't dissolve into a solution well, but works as a rub for just about anything.

As for chicken, I lightly coat cubed pieces in peanut or vegetable oil, rub curry all over them, then stir fry with chopped garlic, onion, celery, or whatever's in the fridge. Stir fry is your friend. Serve with Basmati rice.

Garnish with apple (real or plastic). ;-)

I mentioned to my wife that you were looking for a recipe. She asked "Is he a 'go to the store to buy curry powder'? or a 'roast / grind / fry the spices' kind of cook?

If you're a 'roast / fry / grinder', I'll pass along some of them... Warning though, since I married her 7 years ago, I've gained close to 60 lbs.

She recommended "Classic Indian Cooking" by Julie Sahni

John .. seems complex to me, you should try escargots, that's pretty easy to do.
First time I saw 'curried chicken' on the maini page, I thought you were suggesting a new idea for a challenge John. I thought that was pretty narrow but .. hey .. we have a lot of creativity right ?

She won't eat spicy food so I would have to eat that alone anyway :)

Oh yes :)

Try www.mamtaskitchen.com

This is our own site (created by me and hub) and the content is by my mum. She cooks fantastic Indian curries.

It's non-commercial and has over 300 recipes, mostly Indian, but not all.

:)

For a more unbiased report ask Floyd who has cooked some of her recipes and seemed to like the results at the time!!!

Thanks for the great resource!

I actually got a few lessons once from a man(!) from Bombay who knew how to cook. His guideline was to start by frying some ginger, garlic, chilis, and black mustard seed; to this base you could add just about anything herb- and spice-wise you want and call it "curry." I haven't had much time to cook lately, so this thread is a good motivator...

Yum...curry...

Do any of you curry chefs want to ship some to a poor starving student?

Kavey! I went to your mother's site, ticked the "vegetarian" box on the search page and found 224 recipes! That's so cool, your mother rocks :). Well, I'll have to modify them to be vegan, but that's no big deal.

I've loved Indian food for a long time. The tip about the black mustard seeds is a good one, I always use them. Fry them in the oil before you do anything else and wait for them to start making a crackling sound. Then add the ginger, garlic, garam masala, turmeric, cummin, etc. but don't overcook that stuff! It's so easy to burn your spices and end up with a really bitter aftertaste when you're starting a curry from scratch (not from a jar).

Also, when you're making a vegetable curry, cut the vegetables into relatively large chunks, sautee them first so they get caramelised around the outside, then stew them until they're soft all through... that way they don't just disintegrate, and they keep their flavour (that's a tip from a Hare Krishna chef here, Kurma Dasa, who has a vegetarian cooking show on TV and does classes in my town). Oh, and if you're making a dhal (ie. a curry from lentils or split peas or other beans/pulses) use slightly less water than you think you'll need, and add more as it cooks. That way the beans break down more and go all creamy and delicious :).

There are so many tricks to cooking vegetables well that I never picked up until I stopped eating meat.

Would definitely like to put in a vote of support for Mamta's Kitchen.

Kavey, whom I've known for years is of Indian descent and I'm rather a big fan of indian food. When I asked Kavey why she never cooked indian food for me she rather plaintivley said "but I like chinese take-out". What she did instead was ask her mum to teach me and another good friend how to cook some indian dishes for ourselves. She was a fantastic teacher and now I regularly cook a number of different indian dishes. A particular favourite in our house is Mutter Paneer (cheesy peas!). I'm also a big fan of Cholas (chick peas) and any Aloo (potato) curry.

Mamtas Kitchen is absoltely chock full of great recipies and they're pretty easy to prepare as well. A good place to start is the "Top 20 Recipies" page where you'll see that "Mum's Chicken Curry" is top of the pile.

Enjoy!

John

Thanks Lisa, glad you like the site as it's taken a lot of work but it's great to see it doing so well...

Gordon, I love the Tandoori Chicken 1 and the Chicken Curry (my mum's recipe) as well her lamb curry. Also the lamb mince kebabs are good, and the chick pea curry is one of my faves.

I am not big into cooking so that's all I've cooked so far.

When I need some of this stuff I go visit my ma...
