Korma Curry Paste
I was never satisfied with any curry that I made, although the people who I made them for were always full of compliments. The reason I think was that I had certain expectations for my curry's and for me, they didn't live up to them.
So I changed my technique, I decided to perfect a curry paste for each kind of curry that I produced and keep them in the freezer. That way when I decided to make a curry I could concentrate on the stock and the meat or vegetables and then add the paste.
It worked for me, so I am going to start posting more recipes for curry paste, so keep a look out for your favorite.
