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!
All the best
