If it’s a rich, creamy, heavy curry, I suggest something light like a sorbet perhaps or a fresh fruit tart with some lemon curd drizzles on top.
If it’s a not so heavy, simple curry, you good get away with a vanilla frozen yogurt with pistachios (modern take of kulfi, which is an Indian ice cream). Or rice pudding spiked with cardamom, cinnamon and ginger.
mango ice cream!!
Twinkie curry goes very nicely
2 cups all purpose flour more for dusting
5 tbsp granulated sugar*(I use sugar sub because I’m diabetic)
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter cold and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup half and half , cold I use 2%milk
1 tbsp unsalted butter melted

Mix ingredients for dough above

Pat to a 3/4 inch thickness
Using 3 inch biscuit cutter cut circles from the dough(8)

Brush tops with melted butter and bake in oven 15-20 minutes
remove from oven and set aside to cool
Cook fresh fruit with sugar and 1/2 C water/or juice and 1/2 tsp cornstarch to thicken a little. Shortcakes can be sliced horizontally and filled with fruit or spoon fruit with it’s sauce over shortcake and top with whipped cream or ice cream.

White Chocolate Mousse Banana Cream Pie
3 cups white chocolate
1/2 cups half-and-half
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
2 tablespoon margarine
1/2 cups water
5 bananas, peeled & cut into very thin slices
White chocolate mousse (See above recipe.)
In a double broiler, heat chocolate with 1/4 cup of heavy cream until chocolate has melted. (Remember, chocolate burns easily!) Remove from heat & let cool about 30 minutes.
Scrape mixtures into large mixing bowl or kitchen mixer. Slowly add half-and-half & cream. Whip until light & fluffy. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Sift flour & salt into mixing bowl. Add half of butter. With a pastry cutter or two knives, mix butter into flour to form coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the middle of the mixture. Add water & incorporate it with a knife. If dough is dry, add a little more water. Dough should be soft, but not sticky.
Roll out dough on a floured surface to a 6-by-18 inch rectangle. Spread remaining butter & margarine over 2/3 of the dough. Fold unbuttered portion of dough over half the buttered portion. Fold dough again so butter is completely enclosed.
Seal edges with a rolling pin. Roll dough to fit pie pan. Trim excess dough around the edge of the pan & randomly prick dough with a fork. Bake shell about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Layer pie shell with bananas. With a rubber spatula, spread mousse over bananas. Mousse should stand about 1 inch above the crust. If desired, garnish with shaved white chocolate.
Tips from Chef Mlinarich regarding this Pinon Grill Signature White Chocolate Mousse Banana Cream Pie
You can prepare the white chocolate mousse up to four days before actually making your pie. If time is short, use a prepared crust.
Good quality caramel sauce is an excellent addition to this dessert. Drizzle some on the plate & over the pie. A sprig of mint adds a splash of color.
