Supermarket International Aisle

Every supermarket in your neighborhood has an international aisle, and if you do not know, what is on those shelves then it is time to check it out. You will find a variety of countries represented here, for example, those jars of curry pastes are international flavor powerhouses.

Just a tablespoon of curry paste, a staple in the international aisle of any supermarket, can add potent, exotic flavor to many dishes. Golden brown Curry Garri Fritters are a favorite recipe of Western Africa made with ground cassava flour, hot curry paste and spices fried into delicious snacks.

A typical curry paste contains many complex ingredients, including garlic and shallot, galangal, lemongrass, and kaffir lime peel. Just a spoonful or two of curry paste infuses countless recipes with international flavor.
