Curry love

One of my favorite foods ever is curry – any kind as long as it’s spicy. Despite my love for it, I have never made it from scratch (thinking it was a tall order) and instead always prepared it out of bottled pastes from the grocery stores. However, since I have developed a slight obsession with spices in the last few weeks (which probably stemmed from our trips to the Middle Eastern grocers (Spice Heaven! Oohlala!)), I thought: why not try making curry from scratch with these spices??? Yeah, sometimes I live dangerously.

So this evening, I tried out this new Indian lamb curry recipe found on this recipe site I’ve been trawling lately, Thereafter I realized that I, too, can make curry from scratch. It really isn’t as daunting as I had originally thought it to be!

    I’ve always wanted to make curry myself too..did you have to grind spices?
    Also, I wish i could convert Matt too…he does not understand the depth of curry art and how it really could spice up the senses!

    haha. thanks…”guru” might be a stretch tho; i just follow directions on the recipes!
    no, i didn’t necessarily have to grind the spices. you could still try making curry from scratch, especially since you can control how much of the spicy ingredients (like black peppercorns or peppers) to add! that way, you can make half REALLY spicy for you and half not spicy for Matt. 🙂

    Cheryl! You are amazing – I am in awe of people who know how to cook.

    I need to learn how to cook, I fear that I will set the kitchen on fire even before I chop up the carrots or wash the rice. Or something dramatic like that.
