“Entered for safe-keeping, from Bal Arneson, "Spice Goddess". I generally enjoy her recipes and I can't wait to try this lightened version of one of our favorite dishes, a very mild curry. I started using grapeseed oil because of Bal; it has a high smoke point and the sautéed food tastes "clean". I have learned that in Indian cuisine it is paramount to have fresh spices. I store my ground spices in the freezer. For this dish, you could puree the onion, garlic and ginger in a food processor prior to cooking, which will ensure a smooth, thick sauce. Serve with roti or rice.”
