This looks amazing, i often feel thats its quite tricky to find good vegetarian curry recipes. i’m going to try this out! It looks mesmerizing though!
I have the same question about what you mean by “red chili powder.” Do you mean the New Mexico style chili powder? Cayenne? Something else? Thanks. Looks good.
See my answer to Kristen below, which says: do not use cayenne in place of chili powder spoon-for-spoon because cayenne is hotter. Use your New Mexico-style chili powder. Happy cooking!
Hello! I’m interested in trying this, but really unsure if this ground-almond concoction… How does that thicken this? We’re ground almonds in her original recipe? Thank you!!
Hi, Deanna! Ground nuts are a very good — and traditional — way of thickening sauces around the globe! They are so finely ground that they become almost a paste. When mixed to a sauce, it thickens it just enough to give it some body. Creaminess without the cream. I hope you’ll give it a try!
if you don’t have the spices could curry powder be used?
Yes, you can use curry powder in place of the individual spices that make up the powder. Happy cooking!
I love the ease and flexibility of this dish! I adore Indian food and am so excited to try this!
Sorry, this may be a forehead-slap kind of question but is there any difference between red chili powder and regular chili powder? Are you referring to cayenne? Thank you! Can’t wait to try this!
There are several types of chili powder, but I think the differences are subtle. That said, cayenne is NOT subtle, and would result in a curry that would leave you gasping!
So what chili powder Dhould be used? The powder normally used making chili? Something else?
Hello Kristen, Bob is right (thank you, Bob!): cayenne and chili powder are not interchangeable. Chili powder is less hot than cayenne. My jar says “red chili powder,” but if yours says “chili powder” go ahead and use it. Happy cooking!
Yum this looks so delicious! I have been on a real curry kick lately, so I will definitely be trying this one out :)
