Curry Crab Appetizers
I really like mild curries, but Mr. Spice does not, so I
rarely prepare any. I searched for a recipe that didn’t include a curry-based
sauce, and found one on my favorite home organizing/cleaning site.
I went to two different grocery
stores looking for the tube of butterflake rolls, and ended up with a tube of 8
large ones instead of the 12 smaller ones called for in the recipe. Needless to
say, I ended up with fewer larger appetizers, which tasted great but looked too
huge to be appetizers. I went online and was unable to find brands sold
in stores near me selling tubes of more but smaller biscuits. I think they
would look really cute in the original size, so I may try and cut the large
biscuits next time. Or try the sheets of dough and cut smaller circles. I will
also admit that I was not able to separate the rolls into 3 layers, just 2 so
they are thicker than the recommended size!
Anyway, assembling the topping
was quick and easy. Of the three taste testers, only one was able to guess the
spice, it was nice and mild. Mr. Spice thought they were great, and had no idea
that curry was involved. If I made these bites for a crowd that enjoyed curry,
I’d double the amount used. One taste tester suggested that I could garnish
future versions with an olive or small pieces of roasted red pepper for visual
appeal. I used a plate with positive words on it because the Flylady website is
all about encouraging people.
