Curry - Comfort Food in Winter

Curry - Comfort Food in Winter

Every winter that comes around we have conversations about the cold chill in the air, how much colder it is compared to last year and the shorter days, it's as though the winter season catches us by surprise each year. In a country where warm weather and sunshine is celebrated, winter is generally shunned and calls for hibernation. 

 

But one of the greatest things that winter brings for foodies is the array of hot, comfort food.  Spicy or not, a curry is a typical comfort food and the best part is that there can be so many variations your taste buds won't get bored.  Go to any Asian cuisine restaurant around the world and there will usually be a curry on the menu - Indian, Thai, Indonesian, Malaysian, Japanese and Singaporean just to name a few, all have their version they call their own. 

 

But for any new home cook, many dishes eaten at a restaurant are put in the 'too hard' basket for replicating at home.  Curry shouldn't be one of them - curry is a great dish that you can begin experimenting with and get your creative juices flowing.  Although the balance of flavours can be seen to be difficult to replicate at home, there are hundreds if not thousands of combinations of spices, vegetables, meats and seafood that can change the flavour of a curry to be suitable for your palate.  If you're new to making curry, one tip for you when you're cooking: Less is more.  You can always add more of an ingredient to intensify a flavour, but it's harder to remove once you pour them into the pot.  So if you haven't been game yet to make a curry, be up for the challenge over the next few months - try something new.  If you have been cooking your version of curry for some time, make it new again by adding a twist to it or try a completely new curry that a restaurant you've been to has inspired you to cook.  It will make the hibernation period that much easier to bear.
