Why do people masturbate over Indian curry so much? Thai curry is objectively better pic related. Also when the fuck did people start thinking of Indian food as healthy?
Who thinks Indian food is healthy? When the fuck did people start thinking of Indian food as healthy?
But Thai curries and Indian curries have a different flavour profile. It's unfair to compare them.
this, even Indian people know that eating out in India is nutritionally equivalent to injecting a quart of cream and oil into your veins
of course indian food can be healthy, but this food is usually found in the dining tables of homes
absolutely nothing unhealthy about sambar, idli, chana masala, etc
>the only indian food i know of is half ghee
there are plenty of soups and vegetable dishes without much ghee in them, they also have roasted meats and steamed bread items without ghee.
indian food is pretty varied
Indian curry actually has a wider range.
Sweet, salty, spicy, hot, creamy, tangy, etc.
Technically a curry is anything in India that has sauce, and curry powder found in western stores is just one of many powder basis for making only a small selection of sauces.
Thai curry evolved from only 3 of thousands of original Indian recipes.
In India, houses, businesses and villages have their own unique version of curries.
I like Thai curry better because it has more vegetables, but holy shit is it all the same.
And that's all they ever have. At least the Indians could come up with more than four types.
I just bought a book at Hastings 660 Curries has curry from all over the world its amazing and I can't wait to try this Beef and Mushroom wrap thing.
Either way I just made some Tikka masala and I finally fixed the problem Ive been having with the taste. the fucking crushed tomatoes I used Cento? Centro? and it brought everything together. so fucking good.
Most Indian households make it with some vaguely healthy oil too. Honestly using ghee as the de facto fat in cooking can get expensive. But for some dishes like dal a teaspoon of scorching hot ghee with cumin seeds thrown in a second before tossing it in the dal is a must. In south India a small amount of hot ghee is also added to cooked rice. Apart fro this and a few sweets I can't really think of dishes that need ghee.
no such thing as thai curry
the thai word we traslate as curry is kaeng(gaeng), and it covers a rage of dishes soupy and dry, spiced or herbed, with and without chile..... its disengenuous and absurd to call kaeng curry, in fact the thai name for yellow curry illustrates this so well becuase its kaeng karee, or curry kaeng
even in india the idea of curry is nebulous
'curry' is a totaly reductionist idea
Alright, I'm going to try to make this a curry general.
Is it a sin to use curry powder when making it at home? I don't have access to a ton of fresh spices/herbs, and even if I did I don't make it all the time so they'd go stale quickly.
Also, when doing a thai-style red curry, would it be unusual to add garam masala?
thai red curry doesnt have many spices in it and the use or garam masala would send it in the direction of tasting like masaman
id not add it
only spices it needs are cumin,coriander, and black pepper
I'm sure. I wish places here would have a wider variety, but that's life, I guess. One of these days I'll figure out how to make it, and have something more exciting than yellow curry.
If you guys listened to the recent VORW show by reviewbrah. He is depressed. I was hoping /ck/ could make him a card to cheer him up.
my mum made a fish curry recipe from good housekeeping magazine today. it tells you to substitute coconut water and ground almonds for coconut milk. it tastes like tinned tomatoes, garam masala and green beans, because that's what it is. it's brown.

ITT people who have eaten American "Thai" and American "Indian" and decided sickly sweet Thai is the only kind their juvenile tastebuds won't reject.
Indian curry is literally spice, vegetables and a SMALL amount of oil to absorb the aromatics. If you use a pan full of Ghee you're doing it wrong.
Only dude who knows his shit beyond sitting in 2/5 restaurants.
>cooks in 2 hours and 40 minutes plus marinating time
i'm not talking about healthy i'm saying they don't use a 'SMALL' amount of oil it's quite often the principal solvent in the sauce. like that 'pan full of ghee' thing is often quite true.
Fuck curry. What you need is turmeric. This is the ingredient that helps wounds to heal and fight cancer.
