Lovin' a Laksa



As many of our loyal followers will know, our Curry Kits are extremely versatile. It's just a matter of experimentation.


Below you will find full instructions of how to turn our
 'Curry with Love' 
  Curry Kit into a beautiful, fragrant Laksa.                        


              
   
You will need:

 1 tbsp coconut oil
 1 x 'Curry with Love' Curry Kit
 1 x 400ml tin of coconut milk
 300ml vegetable or chicken stock
 1/2 tbsp of thai fish sauce
 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce (if veggie / vegan switch the soy   
 & thai fish sauce for 1tbsp of tamari instead)
 1 tbsp of peanut butter
 600g of meat / fish / veggies (or a combination)
 300g of dried rice noodles
 Handful of fresh coriander leaves, lime wedges & 
 sliced spring onions to garnish.

     
Method:   

Heat the oil in a large pan, over a low heat.
Add spice pack 1 from the 'Curry with Love' Curry Kit.
When fragrant add your choice of meat / veggies and coat in the spices.
(if using fish wait until the Laksa is cooked, then add at the end and poach in the sauce).
Add the coconut milk, stock, soy sauce, thai fish sauce and peanut butter.
Add spice pack 2 from the Curry Kit. Stir well.
The onions (contained in spice pack 2) will take about 20 minutes to soften. When this happens, add the dried rice noodles and stir well.
When the noodles are soft the Laksa is ready to serve.
Spoon between 4 bowls, garnish with the coriander, spring onions and lime wedges.






Why not try these beautiful flavour combinations:
Chicken, pak choi & pea aubergine.
King Prawn, baby sweetcorn & french beans.
Salmon, hard boiled egg & asparagus.
                                                    Butternut squash & spinach.

Butter Chicken Recipe





Here at Curry with Love, we constantly get asked for a Butter Chicken Curry Kit



Because Mum and I are always striving to meet our customers needs, we set about trying to create it.


After many hours of research and experimental cooking, we came up with the recipe. It was only whilst starting to package it up, that we realised the spices used were almost identical to that of our Tikka Masala Curry Kits! 



Many other Chefs, who specialise in Indian cookery, will agree that the spices are virtually the same. And so Mummy B and I offer you, our  customers, a very easy solution to a Butter Chicken recipe. 





You will need the following:

1 x Tikka Masala Curry Kit from 'Curry with Love'
200g butter
400g tin chopped tomatoes
200ml double cream
800g chicken (skinless, boneless thighs work best)

Method:


Heat the butter in a heavy bottomed pan until melted.

Add spice pack 1 (from the Tikka Masala Curry Kit).

When fragrant, add the chicken and coat in the spices.
When the meat is sealed, add the tomatoes.
Add spice pack 2 (from the Tikka Masala Curry Kit).
Simmer over a low heat until the chicken is tender. (If using chicken on the bone, this could take around 90 minutes. Breast will be quicker, but won't be as tender).
Just before serving, add the double cream and stir well.

Serve with a squeeze of lime.


Easy peasy, limey squeeze!!

'The Daddy' A Curry created from the love and loss of my Dad. Johnny Dolla 1932 - 2016


Our family run business "Curry with Love" was started back in November 2011. Mum and I knew we had a great product, with a lot of potential, but we had no outlet. That's when My dear old Dad, suggested we use half of his market stall on Bury St Edmunds market.

Thanks to him, and the continued support and drive that all our family members have offered, 'Curry with Love' is a successful and ever growing food business.

Our principles have not changed. Our quality of ingredients are still the best we can source. Our aim to offer you a healthy and authentic range of Curry Kits, is still clear.

What has changed though, was the loss of my Dad in January 2016. 

My Dad was diagnosed with Cancer just 4 weeks before he died. Before he passed, he told Mum and I to take the business all the way. So that is exactly what we intend to do.

We know that our customers love to try new products, so it is our aim this year to bring you some well chosen, well executed dishes.

We start this year off with 'The Daddy'. A recipe based on a Garlic, Chilli Chicken dish. My Dad never did get to try this one, as it was still being created when he passed. However, I know he would of loved it!

This blog is not to push our products on you, but to bring your attention to how important family is. Family is not just about blood relatives, but it includes all of those people who are dear to you. Be kind and true to your family, because we never know when they will leave us behind.
