Curry and Its Uses

Postby Robert J. » Mon Sep 10, 2012 2:18 pm

I found out this past weekend that a couple of teaspoons of curry (any kind, really) mixed into a batch of sugar cookie dough is really good. Really. Good. I have been playing around with various curries in various sweet settings for a while now. I was visiting a friend this weekend and we decided to make sugar cookies late one night. A moment of inebriated inspiration had me look in the spice cabinet to see if we could make spice cookies or cake. Went the route of cookies and, damn, it was good.

That is similar to the idea of adding cayenne or hot sauce to everything. May have some merit.

Tut, tut, Carl. "Guest Appearance" seasoning is a good trick, if used sporadically.

Wouldn't have thought of this on my own, but I can kind of go there thinking about how good curry flavored sweet squash is, and how well rieslings with their varying levels of sweetness go with Indian food.

Almond and hash cookies are pretty good, too.

Some of the curry spices are in chai. I have made chai-spiced sugar cookies and flan. Both are excellent!

No. There just wasn't any chocolate around. Needs must, and all...

Shitty. Unless, of course, you count the little treats I bake for myself. I've been playing more music than cooking lately so it's okay.
