There aren’t many foods that scare me, but making curry dishes at home is one thing that leaves me shaking in my boots.
I’ve had some amazing curry and some not-so-good curry and I’m always afraid that mine will end up in the “not-so-good” category.
Thankfully, being a Food & Wine Blogger Correspondent for the past few weeks has given me the courage (and a recipe!) to try one more time.
Finally! I made a curry – a real, flavorful, curry!
It turned out so much better than all the other recipes I’ve tried – most have had too much liquid, not enough spice, or a bad combination of both.
It may not be perfect or have all the traditional ingredients, but the flavor was spot on and delicious!
Spicy, sweet, tart, savory.
This Curried Chicken with Apple recipe was the best curry I’ve ever made at home.
And, since I can’t have curry without rice, I cooked some brown basmati rice in place of the pasta it calls for in the recipe.
A nice spicy dinner on a cool fall night.
