Preparation

  1. Get a package of pre-made curry paste and add a tablespoon of that to a Dutch oven to get it hot.
  2. Then sautée the ginger, garlic, and onion in a couple good glugs of olive and sesame oil. When it's all getting brown, add most of the spices, the lime juice, and the sugar. Then add the coconut milk to de-glaze.
  3. Wrap up a lot of the whole spices (cardamom pods, peppercorns, mustard seeds, cloves, and fennel) in a bit of cheesecloth and put that pouch right into the milk, and let it all simmer for a while.
  4. Roast veggies on a cookie sheet with some olive oil and salt. Plan for about 30 minutes at 425°F.
  5. When they're brown, add to your broth and give it a few extra minutes of simmering. Garnish with fresh basil, extra lime, and whatever else you see fit.
