This is clearly not a traditional curry but it is inspired from what I know about the culture.
The idea started from the seasoning attached to this recipe. Pre-made spice blends save my life when I’m uninspired after a long day working and, this seasoning was inspired from the episode of Chef’s Table (…on netflix, you HAVE to watch it) where they featured the progressive restaurant Gaggan in Bankok. The way Gaggan Anand described the perfect flavour balance of his dish made my head spin and this is what I was able to come up with. Some red chili powder would be interesting to give it a spicier twist but, I sadly didn’t have any on hands. Instead, I choose to top the curry with a little bit of Kochukaru (Korean red pepper flakes, used in kimchi) and it gave it the little spiciness I didn’t add in the seasoning.
I hope you’ll enjoy this potato & chickpea curry recipe and new spice blend attached to it. Make sure to have a small container for the remaining seasoning because you’ll have extra to be creative with.
Happy Cooking! *^_^*
