Like many British men M. has a fixation with Curry. Hotter is better.
M. spent the first 10 years of his career in food safety and built up amazing relationships with many of the restaurateurs he dealt with. So slowly over time M. started to learn how to make his own curry. Eventually he made his own recipe up from what he learned and called it “Hubby Curry.” Hubby Curry nights meant Momma had enough and had quit for the night so dinner was not on the table and the Husband was on duty. Their were periods of time when Hubby Curry nights happened a lot.
Naan bread (a must for curry aficionado) were always problematic. Store bought Naan were never quite right. Even the nice supermarket Naan were just O.K…. ish. So M. started to learn to make Naan. Its quite a process to do right and kinda complicated. So he landed on what was a totally easy and delicious alternative to REAL Naan… simple home made dough patted into oblong egg shapes fried on a very hot dry pan.
These days M. rarely makes Hubby Curry and it is usually pre-planned when he does. I however cook Indian dishes pretty frequently. I am totally in awe of The Complete Asian Cookbook by Charmaine Solomon its totally thorough and really delicious!
