I’m kinda bummed that they stopped making my favourite curry powder….:( …but I guess it forces me to create my own….to be honest, it’s almost ‘TOO MUCH TROUBLE”…but I love it so I do: Roast: 3 Tab. Cumin 1 Tab. Black Mustard Seeds 2 Tab. Coriander Seed I like to toast them separately in a […]

2 Cups Coconut Milk – use a good quality 1 Cup Whipping Cream (35%+) 2/3 Cup Palm Sugar (has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar – only 35!) 2 Eggs. Bring the milk, cream and sugar to a boil, slowly. Remove from heat and cool for 5-10 minutes. Temper the eggs by cracking into […]

This is a long and detailed process…but it’s about as simple as I can get for now… It’s about as basic as I can get for a good curry. There are lots of shortcuts but none of them really work. This makes an excellent vegetarian curry or add chicken…   Another day I will go […]
