Student Cooking

Sometimes I forget the reason why I started this blog. Not only to share with you my learning process and stories (I love writing!) but also to show other students, like myself, that cooking isn’t difficult and that you don’t need packages and stuff to cook a proper meal. So! This is one meal that’s very easy to prepare, even for a student cooking πŸ˜‰

Curry Madras

First of all, if you do not own or cannot find Curry Madras powder, here’s how to make it yourself: Food 52 Curry Madras.

I am learning more and more about herbs, and I love using them. I think it’s a great way to cut down on using salt: and most of us use way too much of that in our everyday cooking! I probably do, too… So that’s why my new challenge is to try and cut back my salt intake.

By the way, did you know that curry madras herbs exist mainly of turmeric? This magnificent herb apparently has many health benefits, which I strongly believe in as I’m drinking some golden milk right now… Haha! You can google “golden milk” for many recipes, but I just used some soy milk and then probably 1-2 teaspoons of turmeric, 1 teaspoon of pepper (I’ll explain why after), 2 teaspoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Warm the milk up and mix everything together: it’s even better if you can foam the milk! 

Okay, so I would explain why I added the pepper. I’ve been reading a lot about food and the way they influence us you know, and this last book mentioned turmeric or “kurkuma” as we call it. And apparently turmeric is even better absorbed by your body when you combine it with black pepper or oil! Good to know, so I thought I’d share πŸ™‚

  1. I thought I used a lot of salt in my cooking until I went to culinary school… they use at least 3 times more. And restaurant cooking? They use A LOT, it’s why food at restaurants always tastes better. Salt. So don’t be so hard on yourself where salt is concerned, friend! πŸ˜‰ Congrats on the new wok! Love this stir fry so I can’t see what else you share with your newest addition to your kitchen!! Healthy, delicious and full of flavor – yum! Cheers, friend!

    1. Ohhhh yes tell me about it! It’s very difficult to limit salt intakes…
      And as for restaurants, totally true! Salt in everything. But hey, food without salt is a bit boring right? You are too kind! Thanks for stopping by dear.

  2. Turmeric is a super food in my book, with so many health and skin benefit no wonder it’s such a popular spice. I’ve never heard of Golden Milk but it sounds right up my alley, I’ll have to try it sometime. Your Curry madras Stir-Fry looks tasty, I’m a sucker for spinach and eggplant so you had me at hello πŸ™‚
