Hot Dude Makes Hot Food

Callaloo again this week, and this time we treated it like spinach, tossing it into our curry at the very end.

This curry also contains farm share zucchini and potatoes and is cooked by a fine-looking gentleman.

Should you not have a fine-looking gentleman of your own, his basic, non-authentic, five-step, recipe-free, delicious curry plan is something like this:
  • Cook onions in (tons of) oil
  • Add Indian spices (curry, garam masala, turmeric) and toast until fragrant
  • Add wet stuff (canned tomatoes, coconut milk, peanut butter)
  • Add dry stuff (potatoes, zucchini, callaloo) in order of cooking time
  • Add extra stuff (sour cream, cilantro) at the end
(Additional notes: Here's Chowhound talking about how to store and eat callaloo; here's someone else making Indian food with callaloo. And: tropical super food?)


  1. Other spices to toast: cumin, cayenne, black pepper. Tasty!

  2. Thanks! I should really pay attention when you tell me things, instead of just ogling the dude.
