What the hell is Country Captain…
by hot sauce and panko
It was one of FDR’s (Franklin Delano Roosevelt, our 32nd President… silly rabbit) favorite dishes. It arrived to Savannah, Georgia in the nineteenth century probably from India and according to James Beard one of the most important dishes we have inherited, the other dish is Southern Fried Chicken.
We decided to make this curry dish because we wanted to stay away from the ubiquitous Thai curries on Clement and Geary or San Francisco for that matter.
In HS&P fashion, we have made our own curry blend and it is different. You will find that this has a distinct southern flavor rather than an Indian flavored curry. So enjoy.
