Super quick curry
« on: November 05, 2010, 07:38:04 am »
Name of Recipe:Super quick curry
Number of People:2
Ingredients:

1 pork fillet cubed (around 200g I guess)
1/2 an onion
1 clove of garlic
EVOO
2 tbsp curry paste (I used Patak's Rogan Josh, use any favourite curry paste or one made in the tmx)
1/2 tin of tomatoes
a little water.

Preparation:
chop garlic and onion and saute for 2mins 30 sec in EVOO - 100 sp 1
Add meat and saute 1 min 100 reverse sp 1
add curry paste, tomatoes and a little water
cook 16 mins 100 reverse sp 1.

Tips/Hints:
Served with rice done in the rice cooker so all ready in around 20 mins. Was really nice.
I've still been doing this sort of quick curry for dd3 and myself for lunch (she asks for curry and rice for lunch several times a week) the old way on the stovetop, this was much easier than the usual method, less messy and tasted better (I guess adding the garlic and onion).

Chicken works just as well and could easily double the quantities to make a family sized meal. I just do little curries for dd3 and I to share for lunch. I often put spinach or capsicum in when I make it.

members' comments

JD - Gotta love this one Zan, thanks for posting it.  Used my homemade Madras curry powder for the first time (only 1 tsp though.

Yvette - DH loved it but no one else liked it the Rogan Josh was quite strong might be nicer with a different paste.

one thing I learnt from cookie and faffa last week at our get together was to look at the tin of tomatoes - usually buy the ITALIAN  as a lot of the tinned tomatoes (including Australian) have additives. I have been too trusting, thinking that I was buying a can of ...hello? tomatoes!!  >:(

And I'm looking forward to making my own curry paste to use.

CP63 - yes it's amazing what they think it's necessary to put into some basic ingredients isn't it!

Is the home made curry powder nice Judy? I've been using my curry pastes in preference, so I still have a lot of bought curry powder.

Yes it was Cookie. Others would probably use a lot more than I did but the teaspoonful gave it a nice flavour and that amount would be suitable for smaller children too.

Just had a thought - I'm going to make some batches for my Christmas hamper.

Yvette, we like strong curries (my 3 year old asks for curry rice every day, lol), but as I said use whatever curry paste you like and however much you like.
My fav pastes are rogan josh or balti, but have made the Indian cookbook Tikka paste and liking that.
As Judy said she just used a teaspoon.

I doubled this to use a whole pork fillet then added a bag of steam fresh veggies in cheese sauce. I have bags of rice in the freezer to go with each serve.
