This is defiantly not a 30 minute meal... but if you ever want to make your family a special meal.. this would be it. It had alot of steps but trust me... well worth it!!! You can make the Curry Paste a day before, that will save you some time. You can use the curry with Tofu (my favorite) or Chicken (my kids favorite) Here is what you will need:
2 Whole Onions, Sliced
1/2 Teaspoon Peppercorns
1 Small Piece of Cinnamon
1/2 Whole Fennel Seeds
1/2 Teaspoon Whole Coriander Seeds
3-4 Whole Cloves
1/2 Teaspoon Whole Cardoman
2 Teaspoons Ground Turmeric
1 Teaspoon Fenugreek
1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 Teaspoon Paprika
5-6 Garlic Cloves
1 Tablespoon Fresh Crushed Ginger
1/2 Cup Chopped Cilantro
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
In a nice heavy pot heat 4 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
You want to grind pretty fine.
You can put it in an air tight container and store in fridge for a couple of days.
Cook the Paste in the Pan with about 4 Tablespoons of Olive Oil for about 1-2 minutes.
Add 2-4 Cups of Water... the less water the thicker your curry will be. I would add a cup at a time until you reach the consistency you prefer.
I added 4 Organic Grass Fed Chicken Quarters and simmered for 1 hour with about 10 chopped Carrots.
You can also add Potatoes and Garbanzo Beans as well.
Press a Whole Block of Firm Tofu
Cube and Lightly Pan Fry until Brown
Add to the Curry Sauce with Potatoes, Carrots, and 1 Can of Garbanzo Beans
Serve with Rice and Some Roti (recipe below)
WHOLE WHEAT ROTI
2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup Water
Pinch of Salt
(Yep... that's it)
In a Large bowl combine the flour water and salt.
Need into a ball.... a smooth ball for about 10 minutes.
Put in a Large Zip Lock Bag and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
Take out of bag and roll into a log.
Cut down the middle first and work your way and make 12 equal pieces
Shape into a small disk and coat with flour both side.
Roll out (not too thin)
Have some Olive Oil and Brush ready.
Lightly brush the Roti
Fold into itself into a triangle.
Roll out once again... does not have to be pretty
Cook in a hot cast iron skillet
It will puff up beautifully
Cook on both side for about 45 seconds each side.
