Post Coconut Curry Sauce - 07-14-2010, 12:15 PM

This section of the forum is looking lonely! I know there are more cooks out there.

Anyway, I have a recipe here that I just got this last weekend from a friend and just made last night. It isn't the healthiest thing in the world(some sugar and fat), but it isn't too bad either. I'll let you be the judge, it is pretty tasty.

Ingredients:
1 can(14oz) unsweetened light coconut milk
1/4 cup smooth natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander(You can use fresh cilantro in place of this, not positive how much though)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper(I used cayenne)
Juice of 1 lime

Mix ingredients in a small saucepan and heat to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower heat to simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve a few spoonfuls over your favorite grilled meat(Chicken, Steak, Pork, Tofu) and garnish with diced scallions(green onions.) If you use tofu it is actually a vegan dish, but what fun is that? haha.

I made this last night with grilled pork chops. It's pretty easy and makes enough to last a little while(I was only cooking for 2 so I had probably 3/4 of the sauce left over.)

It would probably also work real well as a dipping sauce for some baked/grilled chicken tenderloins, kind of satay style.

Enjoy!

Who am I? Wolfgang Puck? Haha.
Maybe I'll start with some photos next time.
Cooking videos of me would be odd since I'm normally darting between the stove and the cutting board. Maybe It'll be comedy cooking.

Just don't pull a Paula Dean and put a pound of butter in every bite.

Cooking video's would be great. I would love to see some and make one myself.
So come on Gerbilo let's cook up some video.
I have a good idea for a very simple one that video would do better than text.


The mind and the body are interrelated: what you do to one necessarily effects the other. There must be a balance between the two. If your body is strong but your mind is weak, you are a powerful instrument with no direction; such an instrument rarely produces good. If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.

"Now take that stick of butter and just put it in ya mouth!"

...disturbing....

I'm with you Brother, I'm southern as they come and a little butter {in a cheat meal} is fine by me but she is a butterholic.

This is a delicious recipe but butter chicken tops it in my opinion.

Coconut tends to lose its taste while cooking...

I either add the canned kind in at the end of cooking, or use the hard Creamed Coconut (comes in a block) which you grate in at the end of cooking. That tastes goooood.. :P
