Is it weird to cook curry in the oven? I didn’t have the time to stay near the stove and have stored my magic thermal cooker away for the move. I decided to make the curry sauce and pour it over some seafood, and stuck it into the oven for some good own slow cooking (no, I don’t own a slow cooker either!).
I was surprised by how tasty it is. I didn’t use store bought curry paste, choosing to use some of the spices I have in my cupboard (amazing how many variations of spices one discover in the pantry while I was packing up). I think this has an Indian touch to it, with the tanginess of the tomato, but in all honestly I have no idea.
As long as I have food on the table right? :p
