When you’re sparingly packing a few items to bring with you, on a ferry, to a remote island — what should you bring?
A curry, of course!
Ahead of a recent camping trip to Fire Island with a group of eight, I made my Easy Indian Chicken Curry (who doesn’t like a hot spicy meal, while in the wild?) and poured it into a disposable aluminum pan. It turned out — the pan was a stroke of genius. When we reached the island, we were easily able to heat up the curry at the campsite by starting a fire in a grill, and setting the entire pan on top of the grill. Perfect! Thanks to a quick-witted pal named Carolyn, we also had pre-made heat-and-serve rice (which she buys at Target – see here.)
Because we all brought our appetites, we had this meal paired with some delicious steaks and red wine….a nice way to rough it.
