Curry dishes are one of my favorite go-tos for a quick and flavorful home-cooked meal.
The spice combinations lend a depth that’s hard to come by in a 20-minute dinner, and the sauciness ties a dish of whatever-is-left-in-the-fridge components together.
The term “curry” might be intimidating for some home cooks. It’s a broad term that refers to a dish usually consisting of meat or vegetables, cooked in a sauce loaded with spices like turmeric. I was hesitant to make curries, certain they required more work and specialized ingredients than I had time for. Then I got into a groove.
