keep calm and c[u]rry on…

With a serious want for a wonderful Indian dish, but a lack of desire to go out for dinner on a Monday night… I decided to browse through some cookbooks and with what I had in the house, whip up a quick pork curry dish served with a coconut rice.
Green curry paste, sliced scallions and olive oil were the building blocks to what would soon be a delicious meal. After a quick sauté of the above, thinly sliced pork was tossed in and stirred around. Once the pork was no longer pink, in went some coconut milk, some shredded coconut, and water.
As soon as the whole lot was boiling, it all went down a notch, soybeans and sugar snap peas were added and it was time for a slow simmer to let everyone get to know each other.
After roughly twenty minutes, it was time to plate and surrender to this luxurious and flavor-laden dinner!

Wrap and roll!

After thumbing through my cookbooks this past weekend and a trip to Whole Foods that proved lacking on satisfying my craving for a hearty chicken salad… I decided to make an old favorite! Chicken salad with a curry mayonnaise dressing. All the ingredients, right in the pantry and a shortcut for the chicken this go-around, a cooked rotisserie chicken from the market.
I tore the meat from the bones, did a quick pass through with my knife and set it aside. For the dressing… mayo, salt, fresh ground pepper [I know I know I cringed too, but sometimes you just have to do it] a splash of champagne vinegar, curry powder, chutney, craisins, finely chopped celery and scallion. After a quick purée, I poured this silky concoction over the chicken and tossed away! This is one marriage [of flavors that is] that will NOT end in divorce…
I like to prep this dish early in the day so the chicken can soak up the flavors, or better yet the day before!
Served in a whole wheat wrap alongside a fresh, light salad and dinner was ready! Simple, easy and over-the-top delicious…
