It’s been too long without an update! I haven’t abandoned the blog, but the last week has been a whirlwind. I had my orientation for the nursing program and registered for classes and then went to Chicago for the weekend for a family wedding and some bonding with my friends. I’ll provide a few photos from the weekend in a later post, but first I wanted to mentioned this delicious Korma Simmer Sauce I tried last week. I love Indian, and I’ve been able to make some on occasion, but it often takes quite a bit of time to make it taste as great as it does in a restaurant. Enter the korma sauce.
I sauteed some onions and garlic, dumped in some chickpeas, chopped tomatoes and kale, topped with this sauce and a cup of water and simmered 10 minutes. Dinner was ready in 15 minutes and it was amazing! It tastes pretty close to the nav ratan korma we like at our Indian restaurant, so when we were in Chicago and near a Trader Joe’s this weekend, I had to pick up some more.
I was surprised how much I liked this because I rarely use any pre-made or packaged foods like this in my cooking. I don’t even buy pasta sauce because I can make my own, but for $2 a jar, this stuff is worth it! The ingredients have no weird additives or preservatives and it made about 3 servings. We also bought the Curry Simmer Sauce to try, so I’ll let you know if it’s as good as the korma.
