Remy Curry

cooking like remy.JPG

with my fractured wrist i find it nearly impossible to cook.

i made curry tonight with the help of my mom. i felt a bit like remy, the rat from the animated movie ratatouille cooking like this.


she copped the onions and garlic. she added most of the ingredients. i told her what to add, she added it.  measurements were not precise. the balance of the spices is probably a little off. i tweaked the chickpea & spinach curry a bit. i just stirred a bit. i omitted the coconut cream, because then i’d have half a can left over in the fridge and i don’t know if i will use it. i decided to add peanuts on a whim. it turned quite nice. i had my curry with some brown basmati rice.

fry in oil:

    • chopped onion
    • chopped garlic

add and create a sauce:

    • tomato paste
    • water (enough to make a sauce with the tomato paste)
    • 1 t chili flakes, or to taste
    • 1 t coriander powder
    • 1 t cumin powder
    • ½ t ginger powder
    • ¼ t nutmeg (optional)
    • pinch of clove powder
    • salt to taste

bring to boil. add the rest of the ingredients and cook until spinach is done. 

    • can of chickpeas/ garbanzo beans
    • frozen spinach
    • roasted peanuts
    • ½ t brown sugar

you can keep it on the stove at a lower heat for a while to develop more flavour. it’s probably better to add the spinach a bit later… but we were in a hurry.

it was a weird way for me to cook.
