Curry Sauce

Mary Beth 2

"This is a flavorful curry sauce from a recipe given to me by an Indian friend that's great with chickpeas or vegetables. I love to throw it in the slow cooker with frozen mixed veggies all day for a healthy Indian dinner. This sauce also freezes beautifully."

Delicious and flavorful. I took a short-cut for the sake of time by chopping the onion in the food processor and then cooking, rather than cook then puree. I served with chicken over rice...y...

This was my first attempt at curry and this recipe is a great place to start - the flavour was excellent. I would say to make sure your water JUST covers your onions or you will end up with a v...

I found this recipe unpleasant as the amount of onions used were overwhelming. It’s possible that’s other might enjoy it but it was not for me.

It was too spicy hot for the children. I would probably omit the red pepper flakes. It needs body... perhaps some tomato paste would have helped with that. I added some coconut cream to help ...

I pureed the onion and garlic before simmering as one other reviewer suggested. Delicious. I froze the sauce and then thawed and reheated. I added a little half and half.

I thought it was on great, used it on tofu cubes, bell peppers, onions & portabellas sauteed in citrus soy sauce on a bed of rice. I couldn't find any garam masala locally though, so I had to l...

This recipe hit the spot for us! I think its one that can be customized or altered based on your tastes & available ingredients. I used estimates on everything & it still came out great. My favo...
