Curry goes so good with so many different foods. I happened on to this recipe a while back as a side dish for a Jamaican jerk dinner.Jump to Recipe
There is an assumption that jerk recipes are spicy. They may have some spice but the spice is flavor when done correctly. The curry acts as a compliment to the spice but stands on its own as it does here. I used 2 curry mixes in this recipe. I am trying to use up my store bought combined spices because they can be easily made from scratch.
The original recipe and other curries I love and have created curries from around the world including:
My Black Eyed Peas & Hominy Curry is tasty, healthy and vegan. This dish can be served as either a side dish or a main course. It is both hearty and light, not filling. I also really like that the dish is so colorful. You know they say we eat with our eyes, and this dish has such a unique color. For the record, I served my recipe with jerk chicken, so it was a side dish.
