Now That's A Spicy Curry!
Scott of Real Epicurean made a delicious looking Coriander Naan Bread. I thought that would inspire me to do the same but apparently it just reinforced my desire to make curry and to shamefully eat it with store bought naan bread. In my defense, ever since that No Knead Bread came along, I’ve been pumping out a loaf a day. I don’t know where it all goes, I think I’m eating it in my sleep. But one day, I’ll make the naan to go with my curry. Put it on the list.
But back to the curry, it was a lamb curry and was my own creation. I basically just threw in whatever I wanted to, including some fresh shiitakes that I got from my mushroom growing friend, onion, peppers, carrots, peas, a forgotten habanero pepper. Mmmm spicy. The lamb was on sale so I had picked up two chops which I then deboned and cubed. I made stock out of the bones and used some of it in the curry sauce along with a lot of curry powder, cumin and curry paste, (I also added some coriander in remembrance of Scott's naan). There was some orange juice in there too… I was just tossing things in, but strangely enough it all worked out really well. Or maybe it was just so spicy that I couldn’t have tasted whether or not it was actually edible. I’m going to believe that it was good, even if I had to mop up the sauce with store bought naan.
