I'm posting this for those of you that have never made an exotic/Indian/coconut milk dish. I want to hopefully show you how easy it is, and then this can serve as a springboard for you to experiment and go to town on your next new flavor dishes. So here's is a super easy recipe to try.
All you need to make this Chicken curry are the following ingredients, that can all be found in any supermarket.
2 packages of fresh chicken tenderloins
1 can of coconut milk
Saute chopped garlic in coconut oil, next add the chicken (pre-cut into bite sized pieces) and stir well. Once you see no more pink on the meat, add about 1/3 cup of curry powder and half a large sliced onion, mix all together. Add about 3/4 of a can of coconut milk. Turn heat to low, cover and let simmer for 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro all over. Serve.
(if you want to kick it up one authentic notch, add 2 kefir lime leaves, if you have access to them and toss them in right when you start cooking)
Side note for Jay, this was my second helping ;-)
Home made bolognese;
I bought a lot of fresh tomatoes at the farmers market and fresh basil.
On very low heat in some evoo, chopped plum tomato, lots of garlic and fresh basil.
Sauteed a pound of grass fed ground beef in some more garlic and added that to the above. A large splash of red wine, some fresh ground pepper. Simmer on low for about 2-3 hours. The steam coming off the pot, doesn't make for a good picture, but you get the idea ;-)
