five months pass...

mr veg accidentally bought an 8 pack of canned chickpeas (instead of black beans)

so i’ve been exploring “660 Curries” chickpea curries chapter & picking ones to try.

this week will be chickpeas in coconut sauce

AND, most excitingly, finally acquired fresh curry leaves at an asian market today for the first time ever — have never been able to find them so v excited to up my curry game now

i love 660 curries. iirc the chana masala recipe was a bit complicated? i may not rc though. but there are a lot of good, simple ones out in the universe. and curry leaves are awesome!

xxxxp: re: chickpeas, i made the confit tandoori chickpeas seen here the other night - https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/jul/11/yotam-ottolenghi-chickpea-recipes-confit-tandoori-polenta-chips-parmesan-braise - and they were so so good, and so so easy. just throw everything in the pot and chuck it in the oven. like, don't even fry anything beforehand. big recommend.

I love fresh curry leaves but sometimes they are hard to find--they do freeze well so stock up when you can!

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Monday, 11 January 2021 04:00 (eight months ago) link

i got a huge bunch for like 3 bucks! i am keeping a few stalks fresh in the fridge for now & then stripped the rest of the leaves & put in the freezer

xxpost lol thx cad!

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 11 January 2021 04:46 (eight months ago) link

yes vg i like that blog, just made lentil and spinach dal from it. and i found my chana masala post upthread:

chana masala, i questioned the 660 curries recipe because it had raw onions added at the end. i don't mind the act of eating raw onions but i don't like the aftermath. no thanks. so i went to the old standby smitten kitchen (a madhur jaffrey copy). it has 1 tablespoon of amchur and lemon juice but i need more sweet/sourness. some recipes have anardana, dried pomegranate seeds. i will get the anardana, soon.

the chickpeas w coconut sauce was very very delicious and so quick to make! delicious way to use up canned chickpeas

am going to do up a vindaloo this week bc i havent had one in so long (like decades)

curries are the best! also i kinda love not having to chop a ton of veg or buy a ton of ingredients. once you have your spice situation set up, its a fkn breeze i love ir

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 3 March 2021 04:46 (six months ago) link

superdeep borehole (harbl), Wednesday, 3 March 2021 12:42 (six months ago) link

that’s the one i made! :D

:)

superdeep borehole (harbl), Wednesday, 3 March 2021 17:13 (six months ago) link

i was thinking i might try to cook all 660 curries, with no deadline. if i tried to do it in like a year i'd be curried out.

superdeep borehole (harbl), Friday, 5 March 2021 00:33 (six months ago) link

i’m working my way through the majority of his chapter on chicken curries, in no particular order

its amazing how many of these you can make if you remember to stock up on almonds, spinach & yogurt!

oh, i watched his previous episodes (i believe these were with babish, there was a bread one?). i remembered he had died, didn't know from covid. RIP.

superdeep borehole (harbl), Friday, 5 March 2021 13:39 (six months ago) link

yes, the bread one was, they just said

superdeep borehole (harbl), Friday, 5 March 2021 13:39 (six months ago) link

"one of my hated ingredients is curry powder" YES

superdeep borehole (harbl), Friday, 5 March 2021 13:40 (six months ago) link

He's definitely done one with Babish before - I think it *was breads, there's a reference in this one to the curries being suitable to be eaten with sides other than bread. Always love a good makhani recipe, though making that would definitely leave me very conscious of how unhealthy it is!
