Caribbean Curry Base


During the nineteenth century, the Caribbean saw a huge influx of people from India. With them they brought spices and cooking methods which have over time been beautifully integrated into mainstream Caribbean culture. In this curry base, these East Indian spices are married with the more traditional elements of Caribbean cuisine to produce a complex and aromatic mixture. These flavours work beautifully with any meats, seafood or vegetables when slow cooked with stock and/or coconut milk. Equally satisfying when served alongside rice or wrapped up in a roti.

Instructions (serves 2):

  1. Brown 1/3 lb of any protein in a pan over medium heat.
  2. Add vegetables and sauté until tender.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of the curry base and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add 3/4 cup of any mixture of stock or coconut milk and stir until well combined.
  5. Boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the protein is cooked through.
  6. Serve.
