Creamy Curry Fenugreek Sauce

Creamy Curry Fenugreek Sauce is amazing on everything.  Lamb, pork, beef, chicken, eggs, seafood, BBQ, vegetables, fruit, your lover, and maybe even hair.  I mean… is there really anything else to say?

The Most Versatile Sauce of All Time

“You could eat an old shoe with Creamy Curry Fenugreek Sauce on it and it would taste gourmet”   – Shalyn Norrish

Shalyn has been the source of a lot of great testimonials for the Creamy Curry Fenugreek Sauce.  I know I wrote down a few, but I can't find them right now…

I love, love, love this sauce, and anyone who has tried it has enjoyed it at least as much!

But I don’t like making single batches for two reasons:

  1. it disappears so fast because everyone loves it (and it is good on EVERYTHING!)
  2. I hate using such small measurements: ¼ or 1/8 of a teaspoon?  I can’t even find the ½ tsp spoon!

And I don’t like doing the math to do bigger batches each time, so I thought I’d post this as a bigger batch.  So below is the single batch version and below that is the Quadruple Batch recipe.  You’re welcome world!

Need an AIP version?  We made that!  AIP version of the Creamy Curry Fenugreek Sauce

We’ve purchased disposable cardboard containers (Canadians use this disposable container) to freeze and give away to friends who really deserve it.  Get a pile of them into the freezer and you’re set for any no-effort fancy meal, or for culinary disaster that will be quickly corrected with some Creamy Curry Fenugreek Sauce.  Culinary 1st Aid.

You’ll probably still end up doubling the quad recipe when you get hooked.

Raj on the Road

It feels like summer is nearly over, even though it's barely started.  If you're on our mailing list, you know that Holley and I went to a summer camp for adults / music festival a couple weeks ago (I really didn't take much in the way of photos, but you can see a few of them here).

This weekend, we're both going to the Masters of the [U]niverse Summit in Vancouver.  Should be a great weekend of self-growth, connection, and inspiration.  If you're in Van, you should join!

And then, I'm off to Montana for the Ancestral Health Symposium and hitting Yellowstone Park while I'm there.  AHS 2018 is full of great speakers covering a whole range of health topics (yes, I will be sharing some of the info with you when I get back).

I know, that all sounds pretty action-packed, but after that, Holley and I are going to a weekend music festival with a few friends.  I'm not sure if there is anything lined up for August.  Maybe I'll just chill at home and enjoy some beach time.

I really need to stock up on Curry Fenugreek Sauce so I can take it to some of these events!

Other than making buckets and buckets of Creamy Curry Fenugreek Sauce, giving some away as gifts, and smearing it on everything, what do you have planned this summer?

I want to see photos on Instagram of your creations with this sauce.  So tag us in your photos, please!  Oh, you wanna know how to make that chicken?  I used thighs (of course – that's where the flavor lives), skinned but still with the bone in, a chopped carrot, sprinkle of green onion, chili pepper and salt, covered with sauce, baked at 400 F for about 30 minutes.  I might have to post the recipe using the Instant Pot (btw, did you know there is a new model being released next month?  We'll tell you all about it soon!)

    Yes please!!! I love the flavor of fenugreek! I bet it’s amazing in this sauce. I would want to pour this sauce over everything.

    • Raj July 16, 2018 at 10:50 pm

      Fyi, this is fenugreek leaves, not the seeds. Very different flavor, but glorious in this sauce.

    Yum!! I love fenugreek…but have never had it is a sauce like this, slurp!

    • Raj July 16, 2018 at 10:48 pm

      To be clear, this uses fenugreek leaves, not seeds. They are quite different flavors, and this is pretty friggin good!
