Cook Eat Delicious!


Curry is usually understood to be a meal of vegetables or meat cooked with spice, with or without a sauce. Curry hails from many countries, there is Thai Curry, Indian Curry, Malaysian Curry, and Pakistani Curry to name a few. They all differ in flavor and spice, which do you prefer? I love a Thai yellow curry with vegetables and a nice coconut sauce. I also enjoy Indian Curry, like Vindaloo, which utilizes many spices and herbs to create such a depth of flavors and heat! Check out some of the following recipes that use curry as a sauce, spice, or to flavor the dish.

Samosa Pie

Potato Samosas are one of my favorite things at an Indian restaurant. I love the contrast of crunchy and soft, plus I don’t mind if it gets some of my curry on it! I love to sop up all that extra curry sauce with a samosa. I wanted to cook up a meal of samosas, so I decided on a Samosa pie. It is a perfect one dish meal or great in a spread with other Indian dishes. It is also a great Vegetarian easy recipe.

Delicious Rating: The flavors are wonderful in this Samosa Pie. You can really choose to mix and match what vegetables you like. I did a combination of potatoes, green beans, peas, and carrots. Next time I will lessen the amount of green beans, it got to be a bit much after the first slice. I will also make a great curry or vindaloo sauce to go with it. Let me know how you enjoy this recipe!


Curried Rice & Chickpeas

Curry is able to change a simple dish into something dynamic. I used to make a Coconut Rice dish with chickpeas and green peas. Delicious. I decided to mix things up by adding in some red curry paste and tomatoes…can you say, “More Delicious”? Yes, it turned my ordinary Rice & Peas dish into something extraordinary.

Delicious Rating: This is a great curry recipe. Again it is a one pot meal, which I am a big fan of because they are usually easy recipes to cook up for dinner. The leftovers got time to blend the flavors and give it more depth which made it taste even better the next day. If you aren’t a big fan of curry, leave it out along with the tomatoes leaving a great coconut rice dish.


Curried Bean Pilaf

 I am a sucker for one-pot meals. They are usually quick and easy recipes that taste great. This is a complete dish and is the star of the dinner show. Yes, you can serve it with some meat or a nice green salad too. The plus? It is a Vegan Recipe and delicious!

Delicious Rating: For a spicier meal, add more curry paste or powder. The first time around I used brown rice and since brown rice cooks a lot longer, the meal was too mushy. The second time around I used white rice and it turned out great. There is a great balance between hot from the curry, sweet from the raisins, and the perfect crunch from the pecans. Overall, it is a good meal and I plan on cooking it again!


“Mellow Yellow” Thai Curry

When we were dating, my DH & I used to a great Thai place on Market in San Francisco. Unfortunately, they changed management throughout the years and the food just wasn’t the same. When we moved here to Mexico, well let’s just say that we were missing any type of Thai food. So we took it upon ourselves to make Thai at home, Curry more specifically. DH makes some deliciously HOT curry. We end up a ball of sweat by the time we finish one bowl! So when I make some Thai Curry it brings out the curry flavor that I love, especially in a yellow curry. “Mellow Yellow” is what I like to call it. I decided to enter it into my 1st ever food blog event! It is called “House Favorites: Vegan” hosted by Chez Cayenne. I am so excited to enter my “Mellow Yellow Thai Curry” because it has been a House Favorite going on two years now! Plus it is vegan. We actually never realized it until recently that most of the dishes I cook are vegan!

Delicious Rating: If you love Yellow Thai Curry you will definitely find this easy recipe to be delicious. It is easy for any home cook to make and as I said above it is a House Favorite in our home. Change it up with different veggies if you would like or make hotter by adding more curry paste or curry powder. I cook the potatoes separately because I don’t care for them buy my DH loves them in curry. You decide and comment on how it turns out for you.
