I’m a firm believer in color and fragrance when cooking in the kitchen, and if I had to make a list of my top five hunger-inducing combos, curry would be number one.
Curry dishes have their roots in southern India, originating hundreds—and some argue thousands—of years ago. Originally, curry was a thin, soup-like, spiced dressing served with rice. Curry itself is a mixture of spices and herbs, such as cumin, coriander, turmeric and garlic. You can create curry dishes of poultry, fish, vegetables and, of course, wild game.
For this recipe, I use a yellow curry powder found at your local grocery store. This curry adds hints of spice and sweetness to the dish, and when combined with elk, orange bell pepper, sweet potatoes and coconut milk, you end up with a savory and satisfying combination.
