My dilemma when preparing meals is I'm the only one that likes spicy. So when I cook something like chili I add chipotle powder to my bowl. It's ok but not as good as cooking it in.
My next culinary adventure is to try making a Thai curry. I notice there some mild curry pastes on the market but I wonder how best to spice up my bowl. I guess I could just add chipotle like I do to just about anything from potato salad to chili. But I'm not sure how appropriate chipotle would be in this case. I'ld rather just add chopped chillies especially when I have plenty in the garden but I don't want to cook two batches. How best to spice a mild curry after it's cooked?
