I really wanted to learn how to cook good Indian influenced curry. However, I was really lost how to begin because I knew that is not as easy as it sounds.
This past weekend I went to my friend’s house who is originally from Guyana. To my surprise she was making very tasty chicken curry similar to Indian, but not the same though.
While I was listening to her talking when she was growing up I felt so calm and was soaking in every word with pleasure. At the same time, I could relate in one way or another with her.
That learning experience making curry her way turned into a few hours of listening to great stories about her childhood. Oh, the memories, food
If I tell you my dreams, you would probably laugh! You all know how much I love authentic meals.
My wish is to one day go into people houses in different parts of the world, listen to their story and learn how to cook authentic meals from their kitchen.
This might be impossible but we can always imagine that those wishing one day will come true! Finally today I got the courage to make a change about the curry.
I was experimenting a few times. Well, I always failed, but then started to make the way my taste buds and my stomach would appreciate it.
I have to admit that I love spicy food, but for some reason, curry spice always hits my stomach really hard, so I had to adjust the amount of everything in this particular recipe.
To be honest I avoided for a long time eating and cooking with curry powder just because the taste was too strong for me, and I could never calculate how much is too much.
However, once I tasted my friend’s curry, surprisingly it was not very heavy on my stomach
I would also say that this is not fusion at all, it is just reduction of spices for our taste, for people who are not used to strong flavors that might people in that part of the world are eating on a regular base
