Coconut Curry Sauce Recipe

Guest Author - Jason Hodge

Coconut curry sauces come in many forms, flavors, influences and presentations. I'm fond of them and have my own twist. If you're in the mood for a creamy, spicy, succulent sauce, that'll go with dishes sweet to savory, read on. I've used this sauce to top rice, pasta and vegetables alike and it can be easily converted into an exotic dip.

I love curries from every culture I've had the fortune of being exposed to, culinarily. They've ranged from spicy and sharp to creamy and smooth. Given the right accompaniments all of the nuances in curries the world over have their tasty places that overall just work. Today I'm going to share with you one of my curries that I think'll knock your socks off.

Here's what you'll need:

Equipment
stock pot
knife
cutting board

Ingredients
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp cumin seed
2 medium onions [brown, chopped]
Himalayan salt crystals [to taste]
2 tbsp curry paste [Thai red curry]
1 tsp peppermint [powdered]
1 tsp rosemary [powdered]
1/4 cup cilantro [fresh]
2 bell peppers [green]
28 oz. coconut milk [fresh or organic, preservative-free canned]

Step 1. Heat your pot, add your oil, cumin seed, onions and salt. Caramelize your onions [saute until they're transparent], add your curry paste, completely incorporate into onions and oil and continue sauteing.
Step 2. Add peppermint, rosemary and cilantro, stir, add your peppers and heat through.
Step 3. Add coconut milk, stir and simmer until peppers are soft and sauce reaches your desired thickness.
Step 4. Use it on or in your dishes [over rice, finishing sauce for pastas, braising liquid for mushrooms, meatballs, sausage, potatoes, cassavas, taro, etc.] it has many diverse uses.

I love this curry sauce! I just used it in a garbanzo/potato dish that was more than flavorful... It was downright addictive! Let me tell you a few reasons beyond the taste of this sauce that gets me all fired up. Curries can be, for the most part, packed full of health benefits like: anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic and natural preservative properties. It can also be strengthening to the circulatory system as well as a digestive aid. There are essential oils in your traditional curries that give tremendous health boosts that modern science is just now discovering. Talk about having a medicine cabinet in your meals!
Well, that about wraps this up. When you try this sauce, you'll be ready to throw caution to the wind and try a lot more variations.

As always, it's been my pleasure sharing these recipes with you. Until next time...
