me and my sister LOVE curry and i think i've come up with the perfect recipe for it......

1 can coconut milk
red or green curry paste (to taste)
dash of fish sauce
pinch of salt

thats the basic sauce, and you can add any veggies you want to it.
last night we had broccoli, bok choy, onion and red pepper curry. we also made coconut rice, but it doesn't really matter whether you have coconut rice cuz there's coconut in the curry sauce. i also really like potato in my curry, but i tend not to eat potato curry with rice because the starch seems to be a little overwhelming.

Just want to say use salt instead of fish sauce if you can't stand fish! Wink

 Hmm, wouldn't fish sauce make it not a vegetarian dish?

I think that would depend on the type of vegetarian.  As a pescaterian, I'd be okay with it, but I don't like fish sauce, so I'd probably use soy sauce or salt.

Also, if you have a good international section of your grocery store, you can buy 'blocks' of curry mix in the asian section.  The directions say that you just add it to veggies and meat (tofu? chickpeas?) simmering in water/broth, to make a stew-like curry.  Haven't tried it yet, but I hear its tasty!

 Pescitarian? What exactly does that mean? I have certainly heard the phrase, but I wouldn't mind maybe knowing more about it Smiley

 I am a vegan so I wouldn't eat fish sauce. I do think I read somewhere about using soy sauce instead, so I may just do that.

A pescetarian is a vegetarian who eats fish. (Pesce being Italian for fish.)

And after reading this thread, I really have a taste for curry!

Fish eaters aren't vegetarians, because vegetarians don't eat any animals.

Erm, I probably should have added that I used Dictionary.com's definition of pescetarian. I guess it would have been better to say that a pescetarian is someone who eats fish, but no other meat.

a dish i make which sounds liek it might be quite simlarish, a thai dish also that you might wanna try

1 can of coconut milk
large bunch or corriander
2 limes
2 cloves of garlic
2 red chillies(or green but red adds a great colour)
2/3 spring onions
large packet of baby prawns
4 pieces of a white fish of your choice, i use haddock or cod
 
prep:
marinade the fish in lime juice and shavings of the skin (the acid will soften the fish)
chop corriander finely

1)fry off the chilli in olive oil, add garlic(chopped finely)
2)add the fish until it goes a little whaite and is half cooked
3)add the lime juice
4)add coconut milk and simmer til the fish is cooked so if you poke it it crumbles, crumble it up a bit with a wooden spoon
5)add prawns and corriander (we add the corriander now otherwise it goes a bit mushy(yuck!!))
6) now work fast and chop the spring onion into little strips.
7)when the prawns have cooked(this will take 4-5 mins from frozen) turn off the heat and serve with rice.
8)add little bit of spring onion on top

yeah you might dig that x you can replace the fish and prawns with tofu and mushrooms, peppers, brocolli, baby corn, quorn

I had a craving for Tandoori once. I used the packet of seasoning that you would normally use to make tandoori chicken wings/legs. I mixed it up with plain yoghurt as the packet suggested. And then to make it chicken-friendly I used sweet potato (AKA Kumera), coated it in the yoghurty mix and baked it in the oven. Served with rice it was delish and really very easy to make.
Mmmmm I have already had dinner tonight but this thread is whetting my appetite.
