        Pensey's is a great spice place, but beware of pre-made mixes as many have nightshades (peppers). This is why I usually work from scratch and just use black pepper to adjust for heat. I have been amazed at how hot just black pepper can make a dish! Tumeric and cumin are great additions. I think you need to just start playing in the kitchen to discover what you might like.

            Here's my recipe for yellow curry. I too don't do well with nightshades...or garlic/onion.

            Ingredients:
            1.5 tsp minced/ crushed fresh ginger
            1 heaping tsp generic yellow curry powder (turmeric, cumin, and some other stuff)
            2-3 tbsp Olive/coconut oil
            1 can coconut milk
            4 med carrots diced
            5 oz fresh spinach
            1 lb diced meat
            salt and pepper to taste

            Method:
            In a 3 quart sauce pan
            Heat oil
            Add curry powder and fresh ginger
            Sauté for around 30 seconds (extract favors into the oil)
            Add coconut milk and carrots
            Simmer 5 minutes
            Add meat
            Simmer 3 minutes
            Add spinach
            Simmer 2 minutes
            Add salt and pepper
            Done!
            Prodistat
            Poke it quickly, with a stick.

              I love curries but hate heat. So I usually do a coconut-milk-based curry. So bleeding good!

              Here is a good, mild curry soup you can start with:

              So good!

                If you make it from scratch, freeze it in cubes and it is always handy to add to meat and veg. I like making up thai green curry paste and freezing it.

                      Or sometimes no creamy ingredient at all.

                        I want to try the soup that was mentioned and the butter chicken I think. From there we will see

                        wait wait.. looking at the recipe for butter chicken.. sooo many ingredients.. and not just any ingredients.. unusual for me. Isn't there an easier way??

                          I'm definitely not a curry expert at all. So, maybe my simple way will help.

                          Go to WFoods or any store that has bins and jars where you can smell products before you buy them. Smell the different curry powders and pick one that is pleasing to your nose. Since they're sold by weight, you can get a small amount with little investment.

                          Make your favorite stir fry. Gently sprinkle on about 1/4 tsp per serving of the curry powder over the top. Add whatever it is you use as milk/cream and stir until the color of the curry is uniform. Taste. Too bland? Add more curry powder. If not, then eat as is. If it's too earthy a taste, a sweetener will help.

                          Some things that go well with curry: most muscle meats, chicken. Most veggies. Garlic and onion.

                          I haven't tried curried fish or liver, but I'm going to try curried chicken livers tonight.

                          Good luck!
