Byron Bay- Cooking Delicious Curry!- 26 June 2024

Today our students had the opportunity to cook and eat curry, for some, it was their first time!

Curry is a traditionally South Asian cuisine, comprising of a spiced sauce and rice.

Today, we made a red chickpea curry, this was perfect, because it is gluten free and  can be vegan, so anyone can enjoy it!

The students started by putting the rice on to cook whilst we worked on the curry.

After this, the curry paste was added- this made the kitchen smell amazing! Once the flavours cooked together onion and garlic had been cooking for a while, it was time for the final few steps.

We added the coconut milk, diced tomato’s and chickpeas into the pan, and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. To finish, we taste tested and adjust accordingly to everyone’s preferences, adding lemon and more paste!
