Before we get into the recipe, let's explore a little bit of the history and fun facts about curry sauce. Curry originated in the Indian subcontinent and has since spread to various parts of the world, each region adapting the recipe to their own tastes and preferences. The word "curry" is derived from the Tamil word "kari", which means spiced sauce. It is believed that curry was introduced to Europe by Portuguese traders in the 15th century and later popularized by the British during their colonial rule in the Indian subcontinent.
Now let's dive into the recipe for our delicious curry sauce!
- 1 Onion
- 1 Apple
- 1/2 oz. Flour
- Lemon Juice
- 1/2 oz. Curry Powder
- 1 oz. Butter or Dripping
- 1 pint Gravy--1d
Time--Half an Hour.
1. Start by peeling and chopping up the onion and apple. Make sure they are finely chopped to ensure a smooth texture in the final sauce.
2. In a saucepan, heat the butter or dripping over medium heat until it is melted and hot.
3. Add the chopped apple and onion to the saucepan and fry for a few minutes until they start to soften and become slightly browned.
4. Sprinkle over the curry powder and flour, and mix well to evenly coat the apple and onion mixture. This will help thicken the sauce and enhance the curry flavor.
5. Pour in the gravy and stir continuously until it starts to boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce for about half an hour. This will allow the flavors to meld together and develop a rich taste.
6. Once the sauce has simmered, strain it to remove any chunks of onion or apple. This will give you a smooth and velvety texture.
7. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of salt to taste. Adjust the seasoning based on your preference.
8. Bring the sauce back to a boil, stirring occasionally, and then it is ready to serve.
It is worth noting that if you are using this sauce for fish dishes, you can substitute the gravy with milk or fish stock to complement the flavor of the fish.
