Only relatively recently did I start making my own curries at home. I’ve always loved eating curries when I order them at a restaurant or someone else makes them. But, for some reason, I had this perception that they were complex flavors and not that easy to make at home. I honestly don’t know why I ever thought that and, boy, was I wrong. Curries are one of the easiest and quickest dishes to make at home. Coconut Chicken Curry has quickly become one of my favorite weeknight meals. Creamy coconut, chicken and fresh veggies combine to create an intensely flavorful meal the entire family with love.
Are there any dishes that you absolutely love to eat when someone else prepares it, but have never actually tried to make yourself? When I realized how easy it was to actually make coconut chicken curry at home, I started thinking about all the other dishes that I eat often but rarely make myself. To be honest, I don’t cook a lot of international cuisine at home. Sure, I’ve made homemade Italian pasta, chicken gyros, and chicken and broccoli stir fry. But, baklava. I love it, but I’ve never actually made it myself. Fried plantains, obsessed with them. And Cuban and Indian food is some of my favorite cuisine, in addition to certain sushi flavors. I’ve never actually made Indian cuisine or sushi even though I eat it quite often. I guess you could say that I’ve added cooking and baking more international flavors to my culinary bucket list.
As I begin to experiment with new international dishes, I will be sure to share them with you. And please share some of your own favorite international recipes so that I can try them too.
