Rainy Night … Curry Night.


We are having quite the storm in Davis right now with lots and lots of rain (very welcome) and wind (not so welcome). It’s the perfect night for some super healthy comfort food.

In the oven roasting right now – fresh cauliflower, broccolette, and cipollini onions … a splash of olive oil, sprinkling of salt, a dash of cayenne pepper, and a healthy dose of curry powder. I’ll roast these on 325 degree Fahrenheit for about an hour or so.

I’ve got a simple curry sauce simmering on the stove just waiting for some additional ingredients. I’ve got frozen peas and corn thawing and draining right now and a girlfriend is bringing over some either chicken, pork, or lamb to cook up and add to the mix. I’m not sure what she’s bringing, so it will be a surprise.

To make the curry sauce, just heat a bit of either butter and/or olive oil in a saucier pan. Make a roux by sprinkling in a bit of flour and curry powder, then whisking together to form a paste. Gradually add some milk and/or stock and whisk until smooth. Simmer to thicken, whisking occasionally. Usually I would use chicken stock, but for some reason tonight I used vegetable stock. I don’t like that as much – next time I’ll stick with chicken stock.

We’ll be serving this with rice.

Mmmm … my house smells soo good right now.
