    Hello,

    I'm fiddling around with my current curry recipes, and I was wondering if there was a good way to use kombu in them? I know that kombu is highly nutritious, and contains a natural form of MSG that gives food a nice umami flavor, but I'm not sure if there's a way to incorporate it into curry specifically. Maybe if I soaked the kombu strips in water and used it instead of chicken broth?

    I would say you are on the right track here. Look up dashi, I make a small batch probably 5 times a week as a stock base for different preparations.
