I know there are differences in the traditions among observant Jews as to whether certain ingredients are permitted during Passover. Like beans, which most Ashkenazy Jews won't eat, but if your background is Sephardic, well, then beans are ok.
It's the same for curry powder, which contains cumin, which can be questionable and is generally not on the kosher for Passover list for many.
And so, if you're looking to use up your curry powder here's a goodie for dinner this week.
The other benefit? This recipe has four ingredients (not counting salt and pepper, which are optional) and is so easy that you will be thoroughly grateful for this dish during the tremendously busy time right before the holiday. And also during the year whenever you're busy and need a quick-and-easy dinner.
Also, it's really really tasty. And perfect with rice, which you might be wanting to use up as well.
