We’re headed to southeast Asia this Food of the World party, and down to Indonesia. As always, I came across a number of recipes I’d love to try, but life is too busy! So I went with the simplest dish I could find, and made it my own. Curry is a common food in Indonesian culture, and as it happens, a dish I’ve never actually made before.
My mother in law had the chance to visit Cambodia recently, and sent me a number of their spices, like Lemongrass, Turmeric, saffron, and red and green curry’s to name a few. Along with the spices she also sent a Cambodian cookbook – but I’ll save that for another Food of the World party! Cambodia does sit close to Indonesia so I would venture to guess they use many of the same spices in their cuisine.
Aren’t those fun! I can’t wait to give more of them a try. For this recipe, I wanted to keep it simple, with ingredients we had on hand, and a mild flavor for the kids. So we went with the green curry powder. I found it a little lacking in flavor, and wish I’d added another layer, or used coconut milk. Alas, maybe next time.
