My Paneer Curry is so simple to make and the curry has a deep, rich flavor. I have learned that a curry can come in many forms. A CURRY originates from India and generally contains a number of herbs and spices frequently including cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger and some chilies. But it really will vary depending on what part of India the recipe originated from.
Showing you a small sample of the variety of curries I have made including:
RED CURRY – in a pasta
PUMPKIN CURRY – a vegan dish
YELLOW CURRY – lentils
The base of my curry sauce is sauteed onions, tomatoes and garlic. The turmeric and chili powder is roasted in oil until aromatic. Then it is topped with the tomato, onions & garlic. The combination is pulsed to a silky sauce. The sauce is finished with the addition of vegetable stock and some toasted cumin and coriander that is ground in a spice blender.
