Curry Monday – Mushroom Korma


As we’ve been away for the weekend I haven’t had the opportunity to get to the butchers so tonight was a veggie curry. Knowing Hubby can be a bit reluctant when it comes to veggie dishes I was shocked when he came home and announced he had been looking forward to Mushroom Korma all day!

It wasn’t like a thick super-creamy korma as I know it, but was still delicious. A quick googling of the word “korma” teaches me that a korma is just a pale, creamy and mild curry dish. As I’m getting better with different curries and their techniques I’m beginning to understand how I can create other curries. In the next couple of weeks I’m going to try a Chinese curry. The recipe below is based on a recipe from 30-minute Indian cookbook.
