Maggie’s Coconut PowderPosted: November 25, 2010
When I was in Minnesota last week we had some amazing meals at home. Among all the delicious dishes I woke up to, one dish stood out. A potoato curry that my mom made. I liked it immediately because it seemed simple to make but still it tasted so good – simple receipes are the ones I am drawn to. If you want complicated dishes you ask my dad or look at a cookbook. The entire house was drawn to this potato curry instantly and it mixed well with puttu.
I quickly went to my mom and inquired what is the secret ingredient that is in her curry. That is when my mom introduced me to a packet of Maggie’s Coconut Powder. For a large pototao curry dish she only added a spoon of this coconut powder after mixing it in some warm water.
I made sure to buy a box and bring it with me to NYC.
Since my move I have been obssessed with making a great spinach curry like my parents have made over the years. Spinach is such a great vegetable because of all the fiber and I wanted to make it a staple in my diet and in order for this to happen I need good receipes.
However, anytime I inquired about the spinich curry my mom always have said that some coconut is needed. Where am I going to go for coconut- to grind them seemed like a lot of work in my little kitchen.
Now, since I have this amazing and easy coconut powder mix I can finally make that spinich curry.
During just one week time I have tried my hand at three different styles of spinach curry hoping one after another would best remind me of my home-cooked spinach curry. Today, finally, I hit the jackpot! The only differnce was how long I cooked the spinach- it made all the difference.
