Recipes Featuring Curry Powder

Why do we love curry? Let us count the ways: It's a sweet-heat blend of many spices, including turmeric (which gives curry its characteristic yellow tint), cinnamon, cloves, fenugreek, cumin, nutmeg, chiles, and coriander; it adds depth to chicken dishes, vegetable soups, and even snack mixes; and its heat is a subtle, slow burn that lets food shine. Read on for some of our favorite recipes with curry powder. Kitchen tip: Curry powder loses its pungency quickly and should be stored no longer than 2 months.

Orange and Raspberry Chip Shortbread

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and orange peel. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Add flour and beat until crumbly. Stir in the baking pieces with a wooden spoon, pressing dough together until smooth.
  2. On an ungreased cookie sheet, press dough into a 12x8-inch rectangle (about 1/4 inch thick). Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until bottom just begins to brown and center is set. Cool on sheet on a wire rack. Spread Orange Glaze over cooled shortbread. Let stand at least 30 minutes until glaze is set. Cut lengthwise into three strips. Cut each strip crosswise into eight pieces, making 24 rectangles. Cut each rectangle lengthwise into two pieces. Makes 48.

From the Test Kitchen

Place cookies in layers separated by waxed paper in an airtight container; cover; store at room temperature for up to 3 days. Or freeze uncut shortbread for up to 3 months; thaw, glaze, and cut shortbread.

Orange Glaze

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, butter, and the 1 tablespoon orange juice. If necessary, whisk in additional orange juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, until glaze is of desired consistency.
