Growing up, I was skeptical of curry, and really all Indian food. My dad is a very picky eater and resisted eating Indian food for the first 50 years of his life. When we went on a family trip to London, he ate Indian food for the first time (and he liked it, I’ll add). Needless to say, I didn’t eat a whole lot of Indian food growing up, and I still don’t to this day.
But lately, I’ve been craving asian-y, soul-y, comfort food. Asian food is incredibly hard to eat on a clean, whole foods diet. I can’t whip up the soy-ridden teriyaki salmon like I used to ALL THE TIME just a year ago. This past weekend, my friend Lindsay visited me and she is a curry expert, so I knew I had to give it a try. I read through lots of different recipes for paleo curry online, but didn’t find anything that fit what I was looking for so I figured I would wing it and hope for the best.
