Based on your personal experience do you have any easy to make family curry recipes?

Published by at 2:55 am under Curry

I am not looking for Internet links. I'm looking for honest to goodness down home cooking that's easy enough for me to make in my own home.

Preferably a recipe that's been in your family (that you are allowed to share) which is basic and easy to make. I do have access to an array of ingredients (tamarind, curry pastes, lemongrass, coconut milk, various vegetables and beans, etc.).

Thank you for sharing! 🙂
Wow, these look great everyone, thank you! 🙂

East Indian Curried Garbanzo Beans
( serves 5-8 as a main dish or side dish)

3 cups garbanzo beans ( precooked or canned)
1 onion
1 Tablespoon oil or butter
1 Tablespoon curry powder
1 Teaspoon vegesal or salt
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger chopped (or 1 teaspoon powdered)
1/2 cup water
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped

If you want to use dried garbanzo beans soak 1 1/2 cups over night. The next day boil beans for about one hour or until soft. Skin the white foam off the top while beans are boiling, they are now ready to use in this recipe. Dice onion into small pieces. Heat the oil or butter in a frying pan and constantly stir ass you add the curry powder, salt, garlic, and ginger. Next saute the onion. When this is almost cooked add the garbanzo beans and continue to cook. Add the 1/2 cup water, lower the heat and cook for 20 minutes or until the garbanzo beans are heated through. Add the lemon juice and yogurt and heat through again. Wash and dice the tomatoes and cilantro. Serve the garbanzo over ric and garnish with the tomatoe and cilantro.

Dear Cobalt Daisy,
This is a good recipe to serve with some corn bread. If you and the rest of your family do not like slightly spicy food it may not be the best idea. It is very good with corn bread and rice. Hope you like this recipe and maybe you can make it if you want to try it!
