Rich and Comforting Simple Curry Sauce

Simple Curry Sauce using curry powder

Simple curry sauce might be the simplest and easiest curry sauce you have ever made. This is my go-to curry sauce when I am very busy or tired, yet my children love it so much. It is just perfect for a busy Mom or mid-week dinner.

It has few ingredients with few steps. Although it is simple, this sauce is full of flavour and is very comforting. The taste and spice level of this dish will vary a bit depending on the type of curry powder you use. You can use any curry powder of your choice so long as you like the flavour of the blend also, remember that some curry powders are really hot (spicy).

I used green beans here instead of fresh peas because that is what I had at home. Also, the boiled egg is optional but we always add it to our Simple curry sauce, my mother also did.
