Adaptable one-pot curry
A few years ago, while learning how to cook at university, I realised that to make many curries you follow more or less the same sequence of steps. Once memorised, that sequence became super helpful to me. I was able to quickly and efficiently produce a healthy, filling curry without a recipe or too much thought. Make a base, then spice it, add your 'bulk' ingredients, then garnish and season - and it's adaptable and all in one pot. What more could you want?!
