2017 Update: Due to a problem with Photobucket, see here, there will be a lot of recipes without photos. I will be slowly redoing the recipe pages, as best I can, but many other posts will be impossible to replace. I’m doing this in my own time, while continuing to update the blog with new recipes and posts. If you’d like to donate, any amount appreciated, you can do so here. The site will always be free, the recipes will never be locked behind a paywall, but this is a lot of additional work. I’m not demanding or begging, just putting it there so if you feel like repaying my hard work you have that option. I don’t make any money from the site, all that I do here is to help others, I couldn’t charge for that.
A basic curry I use for experimenting with different thickeners. You’ll notice I like to try different things with recipes and this one was born exclusively for the purpose of testing thickeners. The name comes from the slurry you make with cornstarch and water which funnily I never use, but the rhyming name was too much to resist.

Rooibos/Wild Rooibos Curry: Steep two Teabags in 150ml of Hot Water while preparing everything else. Dissolve 1/2 Stock Cube in 10ml of Hot Water and add to Rooibos. Add the same time as you would stock.
