Saba Curry – Masala Curry Paste | 鯖カレー – マサラ・カレー・ペースト

I’ve been quite absent from my blog for some time, fortunately or unfortunately quite preoccupied with work. 

I’ve had the opportunity to work on some of the current social media softwares and platforms to create some ‘artsy’ SNS post so to as seen displayed on my latest post.

My latest recipe which is a simple Indian curry made from just few spices, initially to make a ‘masala curry paste’ which can be applied to most any curry of your choice.  I’ve tried the ‘mackerel (saba)’, the most simplest but quite tasty from the condensed packed seafood taste from just a can of mackerel. 

Some recipe below and a quick video of how to make the ‘masala paste’.  I suggest the recipe to be doubled or tripled as it can be stored frozen and used when  necessary.
