DROP-IN DINNER: Stoplight Curries by Len Senater

June 23, 2015 @ 6:00 pm

There is really no such thing as a “curry”; the concept is more of the legacy of a colonial attempt to condense a continent’s worth of culinary diversity into a single dish or spice blend. Unpack it, and there are thousands of unique regional dishes across a staggering range of flavours and ingredients waiting to be discovered.

To showcase the versatility/absurdity of the curry idea, I’m going to do a trio of three very different Indian-inspired dishes, ranging from brilliant red, to golden yellow, to bright green. There will be a rogan josh chicken, with tomatoes & red peppers, a mixed grain dal with onion and turmeric, and a fresh spinach and chard saag with cubes of seared tofu ‘paneer’. They’ll be served along with some simple whole wheat chapatis, some basmati rice, minted yogurt and a delicious Indian-style pumpkin pickle made the West End Food Co-op as part of their urban cannery project, which our guest speaker James Partanen will be talking about.
