Quick Coconut Milk Curry


Tuesday, September 4, 2018

I made this curry some years back when I was testing a Jamie Oliver self-stirring home-cooker.

My Freshly Blogged experience is all about the learning. I'm using these challenges as an opportunity to skill up and tackle techniques that are new to me. In this latest challenge, I faced two things I'd never prepared before; bread and a braai/barbecue. Our ingredients this week were: PnP Red Grape Juice (for those of us who ...
