Curry?

I've never used it, smelled it, or tasted it. I dont believe that I have ever looked at a recipe that has any in it. So is there a way to describe the taste? Is there a simple, but good intro to curry recipe or idea I could try?

Made this recipe a couple of nights ago. Just left out the rice due to Dylans intolerance. But yum! Dylan was iffy on it, but Ethan, me and the Dh liked it. Im excited to use curry in other dishes, because I liked the flavor. It was such a simple easy dish. Thank you again!!!!

You should Karen, it's a great cool-weather dish! The one I make is similar to this recipe, but I use the Ethiopian berbere spice instead of the curry. I also add some carrots, which I think it a good addition.

I have never fooled with lentils, I watched a thing on Food TV about them tonight and wondered why. But in all reality, you just don't see a lot of Deep South dishes that have lentils!

I like using curry with lentils, it's a good way to introduce yourself to the flavor (if you like lentils, of course). I usually just buy the little container of it with the red lid (Is that McCormick's?)

HONEY, when it comes to the kitchen, THERE ARE NO DUMB QUESTIONS.
What would be dense, would be not asking.

Let me know how you like it!

You are not dense - or maybe I am too - because I didn't know exactly what was in it either. I saw a recipe for crock pot curry chicken earlier this week and bookmarked it until I could get the curry spice. I think I might have everything I need to make it myself now that I see Karen's list!

See how much I know! LOL, did not know it was a blend. Thank you for clearing that up!
And thank you very much for that simple recipe! Sounds like a good intro to the flavor. I kind of feel silly for being so dense sometimes!

Curry is actually a spice blend, not a whole spice.
