Pakistani Curry Recipe

Delicious meal idea - Shrimp with Pakistani Curry

This curry has a laundry list of ingredients but is well worth the effort. Curry is one of those foods that is totally unique to the house, region or country where you are enjoying it – so don’t worry if you can’t find every ingredient. We prefer using whole spices whenever possible. Fresh tumeric and fenugreek can be found at a specialty Asian grocery. The curry paste will keep in your refrigerator for at least a month and you will be amazed at all its uses  – Rogan Josh (Lamb Curry), Coconut Curried Shrimp, Dahl the list goes on! You can be a bit untraditional and use this curry in many different cuisines – Thai, Indonesian, Pakastani and Indian to name a few.
