Cooking with food intolerances

Curry Powder May 21, 2016

Are you allergic to turmeric? Me too. Unfortunately it caused inflammation in my esophagus, not something I was really fond of since it made swallowing kind of difficult. But I missed curry. So I asked a couple of people for their own blends, and experimented. This is what I came up with:

2 Tbs. ground cumin

1 tsp. garam masala

1 Tbs. coriander

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper

1/2 tsp. ground mustard powder

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/2 tsp. ground cardamon

1 curry leaf, ground

Put in a coffee grinder to blend flavors. Keep in airtight container.


Curried Chicken Salad July 3, 2011

This recipe was inspired by my neighbor, Heidi. She told me the ingredients in her recipe, and I couldn’t¬†have some of them, and had forgotten some of them when I decided to make mine, but what I made turned out delicious. And now I’m very sad that I’m out of curry powder, and I’m wondering if I can do the same thing with green curry paste…

3/4 boneless chicken breast, diced

about 1/2-3/4 c. green grapes, halved

1 apple, diced

1/2 Tbs. safe curry powder

1/2 c. safe mayonnaise (I make my own; it does have eggs)

2 tsp. sugar

sea salt to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Chill. Eat too much. Go back for more a few minutes later because it was so good.
