The base for curry for 2 people
For the mixed spice:
- 1 tbsp coriander powder
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- ½ tsp paprika
- 1 heaped tsp garam masala
- 1 tbsp of tomato puree
- 1 tsp of chilli powder (or to taste)
- Mix all the above ingredients together to make a paste then add enough water until it is a thick creamy consistency.
1 large onion or 2 medium onions finely chopped
2 inches of fresh ginger, grated, minced, or finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, grated, minced, or finely chopped
2 tbsp veg oil of choice
Heat the oil in a pan
Add the onions with salt and cook until beginning to soften
Add the garlic and ginger.
Heat together stirring all the time for 3-4 mins (add a little water if it gets too dry or begins to catch).
When the oil rises to the top add enough water to make into a thick gravy.
The sauce is now ready for you to add your leftover turkey, meat or vegetables, or can be cooled and kept in the fridge for 2 – 3 days or frozen to be used later.
