Simple curry recipe

I learnt how to make a simple curry back in 2006, following a few instructions from a chap I was working for at the time.   Home made curries are far superior to the plastic ready made meals sold at places like Tesco and Aldi.

First of all chop up a good size onion and boil until soft.

I like button mushrooms in a curry.   Same again I clean, chop into half and boil until tender.

It’s up to you what you use as the meat base in a curry.  If you use chicken, fry in Olive oil until thoroughly cooked.  I prefer Quorn products, which you can get in mince or chicken pieces.  No need to pre cook the Quorn products as far as I am concerned.

Tin of chopped tomatoes.  Same again you can do it the hard way and chop up your own fresh tomatoes.

Tesco curry powder.  I tend to use medium.  If you like you can find the main ingredients in a curry powder and make your own.

I usually chop up a few garlic cloves or you can crush with a garlic crushing tool.

Throw all the ingredients into a pan and gently simmer until cooked to perfection.

I threw some green peppers in today.   Sometimes I will chop up cucumbers into small bits and stir in at the end or add cream just before I pour onto the plate.

Cooking is about experimenting from a base recipe.  Not one of my curries is the same.

What would I serve the curry with?   Sometimes I slice and boil potatoes and put the curry on top.   Other times I use rice and today Couscous.

I tend to cook for two, but freeze one half of my meal and have the next week.  However I don’t freeze the Quorn, as it has already been frozen once.  Probably I could get away with this, but I am not taking any chances.

If you have any questions give me a shout!

Happy eating

All the best

Tim
