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.
