Recipe Review: Curry

Hello everyone!

As you can tell, this is going to be a cooking post because I’m always looking for ways to keep my blog from getting too stagnant.

This is the first time I have tried this recipe and I got it from Pinterest. If you have read any of my other cooking posts, you already know that I use Pinterest for most of my recipes. I also never follow a recipe completely, but I do use the original recipe as a guideline.

I will tell you right now that I substituted some things, I left out a few things things, and I didn’t even measure some things. So this is my take on the recipe, but if you want to look at the original, I did provide a link.

So let’s just get into the cooking!

Recipe: Simple Curry

Cooking Time: Maybe around 10 or 15 minutes?

Ingredients

  • Olive oil – To make sure nothing sticks to your pan.
  • 1 Shredded rotisserie chicken – The original recipe calls for ground turkey, but I’m lazy so I just substituted that for a rotisserie chicken from Albertsons.
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Curry powder – Its curry so of course this goes in.
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne powder – The original recipe called for 1/8 tsp, but I don’t have that small of a measuring spoon so I used the 1/4 one.
  • Salt – Just put in a regular amount so that it tastes good.
  • Pepper – Again just add a normal amount.
  • 1 Onion – For some reason I couldn’t find an onion so I used onion powder and didn’t measure it because I just throw in some and then taste it to make sure it isn’t going to be too bland. If I think it needs more, I’ll add more. I think it was about 1 tsp or so?
  • Garlic – A while ago I went to Sam’s Club and got a giant jar of chopped garlic and I just threw in some and it tasted pretty good so I didn’t add any more. I also think it was around 1 tsp.
  • 1 Can coconut milk – The original recipe calls for 1 cup but I don’t like to have leftovers so I just put the whole can in.

Instructions

  1. Shred the rotisserie chicken. If you don’t know how, just grab two forks and go to town on that guy until it looks shredded.
  2. Combine all your spices into a small bowl. If you don’t want to you can always just add them as you are cooking.
  3. Warm up your pan on lowish-medium heat. Also throw in some olive oil so nothing will stick to the bottom.
  4. Add your chicken to warm it up.
  5. Dump in all your spices.
  6. Add the coconut milk.
  7. Mix that around until its well mixed, warm and smells good.
  8. Make some rice or quinoa. I have a rice cooker that works really well and since I was in the mood for some rice, that is what I made.
  9. Eat dinner and feel very proud of your cooking skills!

I hope you liked this recipe and if you did leave a comment so I can say hi!

  1. Nice and easy. I find it’s hard to mess up curry and coconut dishes. I’m sure it was delicious! You cook like I do- a little bit of this a little bit of that. No patience to read through and follow a whole recipe.
