Serving And Storing
Serving – Curry is best when it is served hot from the skillet over freshly made rice, cauliflower rice, or flatbread. Serve it with fresh herbs and spices.
Storing – Typically, you can store leftover curry in the fridge for 3-5 days or the freezer for up to 4 months. Make sure it cools completely before transferring it into freezer safe containers. To reheat, let the curry thaw completely at room temperature before gently reheating over the stovetop or in the microwave.
Tips And Tricks
- When a recipe calls for herbs, ginger, or garlic, always use fresh. Rather than powdered spices, fresh add so much additional flavor to curry dishes that can't be beat.
- Make the rice fresh when you serve the curry. If you want to make the curry the day before serving, you can, just make the rice when you intend to serve the curry. Rice tastes best fresh and often doesn’t store well.
- For a grain-free alternative, serve these curry dishes over cauliflower rice
- Curries are generally very versatile. Feel free to taste and adjust seasonins liberally to your liking.
Frequently Asked Questions
For sure! Often times curry is better on day two, after the flavors have been able to marinate for a bit. You can prepare most curry up to 3 days in advance and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. However, do not make the rice until you are ready to serve.
While both curries contain vegetables and protein cooked in a thick rich sauce, Indian curry uses a mixture of dry spices such as cumin and turmeric and is cooked in a tomato sauce that is typically less heavy and rich. Thai curry, on the other hand, uses a curry paste and is made with fresh ingredients cooked together in a coconut milk sauce. Read more about the difference between the two types of curry.
Typically Thai curry is spicier than Indian curry but in all recipes, the spice can be adjusted. If you are concerned with spice, start with a small amount and taste and adjust as you go.
