Curry Sauce Recipe

Curry sauce is a flavorful and aromatic sauce that is widely used in various cuisines around the world. It is a versatile condiment that adds a burst of flavors to any dish it is used with. Although the exact origins of curry sauce are unclear, it is believed to have emerged in the Indian subcontinent and gradually spread to different parts of the world through global trade and colonization.

Fun fact: Did you know that curry powder, which is one of the key ingredients in curry sauce, is not actually a traditional Indian spice blend? It was actually created by the British during the colonial era as an attempt to recreate the flavors they had encountered in Indian cuisine.

Now, let's dive into a delicious recipe for curry sauce!

Ingredients:
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 cup milk
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
- Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

1. In a small bowl, mix the curry powder with the flour. This step will help evenly distribute the curry flavor throughout the sauce.

2. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Sauté until the onions become translucent and the mixture becomes fragrant.

3. Slowly add the curry-flour mixture to the saucepan, stirring constantly to incorporate it into the butter and onion mixture. This step will help thicken the sauce.

4. Gradually pour in the chicken or vegetable broth, stirring continuously to prevent lumps from forming.

5. Pour in the milk while stirring continuously. This will give the sauce a creamy texture. Continue to stir until the sauce thickens and reaches your desired consistency.

6. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Remember that curry powder already contains some spices, so taste the sauce before adding too much salt or pepper.

7. Simmer the curry sauce for a few more minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

Now, you have a delicious and versatile curry sauce ready to be used in various dishes! This sauce pairs well with roasted vegetables, grilled chicken, or even as a dipping sauce for crispy fries.
