I've never seen a recipe for it, but my guess is that by the time you gathered the ingredients you will spend far more than just buying it retail, unless you are going to make a couple thousand sticks.
Only an open mind and open heart can be filled with life.
Find your voice; silence will not protect you.

This is my absolute FAVORITE recipe! Curry is my favorite food, and I thought I'd share this recipe I found online. If I'm allowed to post the link, I will, but for now here's the actual recipe. Give it a try!
I personally don't use meat when I make this, but I love Chicken in my curry.
* 1 lb ground beef
* 4 medium potatoes, diced
* 3 carrots, diced
* 1 onion, diced
* 2 cloves garlic
* 4 C water
* 2 chicken or beef boullion cubes
* 5 Tbsp vegetable oil
* 1/4 C flour
* 4 Tbsp curry powder
* 1 tsp chili powder (optional)
* 2 Tsp salt (or to taste)
* 2 C short grain rice
* 4 C water
1. In a large pot, heat 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil. Saute onion and garlic until softened.
2. Add the ground beef and cook until it is no longer pink.
3. Add the carrots and potatoes, stir a few times, and then add the water and boullion.
4. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
5. While the meat is cooking, make a roux out of the remaining 3 Tbsp oil and the flour: heat oil in a medium skillet until shimmering. Over low-medium heat, add flour and stir, cooking until the flour is blended and takes on a pale golden hue.
6. Add curry powder and chili powder, using the back of the spatula to blend it into the roux. The mixture will be powdery and dry.
7. Take 1/2 C of the hot liquid from the meat pot and slowly add it to the curry-roux mixture, stiring constantly to form a smooth paste.
8. By spoonfuls, add the curry paste back to the beef mixture, stirring to dissolve.
9. Add salt.
10. Simmer the curry for 20-30 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and the beef and vegetables are tender.
11. While curry is finishing up, bring rice and water to a boil in a pot, immediately reduce heat to low, cover the pot with its lid, and cook for 20 minutes.
12. Serve curry with rice in shallow bowls. There should be approximately twice as much curry as rice in the bowl.
14. 1) Curry mixes vary in ingredients and intensity, so adjust the spices accordingly.
15. 2) Like a stew, there should be a lot of sauce, so if the curry is too dry, add more water.
