Idon’t think I’ve ever met any­one who doesn’t like curry. This flavour­ful dish filled with spices is like a mag­net for many peo­ple. It’s also one of the trea­sures our fel­low cit­i­zens from the East brought with them to our coun­try. It’s win­ter com­fort food at its best. And it’s ac­tu­ally re­ally sim­ple. You need good curry pow­der, or rather garam masala, and then your choice of meat: lamb, beef, pork, veni­son, chicken or seafood. There is, of course, also veg­e­tar­ian curry for the non-meat eaters. A tra­di­tional curry is a long, slow process – per­fect to make on the camp­fire – but there are also vari­a­tions that can be pre­pared in a flash. Any town should have a spice shop and here you’ll find good-qual­ity curry pow­der that will suit your in­di­vid­ual tastes. That’s why it’s not re­ally nec­es­sary to make your own.
