I don’t know how to cook, and this is my first time making curry. So, if I can do this, so can you!
I felt encouraged to try this out because it has very few ingredients, it’s vegan, and it’s curry! I salivate when they eat curry in the Jdramas or animes I watch. 😉
I waited till the house was almost deserted before attempting to cook. Still, OnigiriJr and our aunt who stayed at home kept asking, “What’s cooking? That smells good!”
Here’s the recipe. Credits go to VeggieBelly where I got the original recipe from.
- 1 tablespoon Oil
- 1/2 medium red onion, diced
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 3/4 cup pureed tomatoes
- 1 zucchini (about 6 oz)
- 1/2 cup cauliflower florets
- 1/2 carrot
- 2-4 tbsp coconut milk
- cilantro for garnish
1. If you are using fresh tomatoes, remove the seeds and puree. Set aside. You can also use canned whole tomatoes. (I’m on a whole foods diet though so no canned for me.)
2. Heat oil in a pan, and add the onions. When they become translucent, stir in the minced garlic.
3. Add your curry powder. After 10 seconds of stirring, add in your tomatoes. Season with salt.
4. Bring the whole mixture to a boil. Lower the heat so that it simmers for 15 minutes. Make sure the mixture doesn’t dry up!
5. Toss in the vegetables while the sauce is simmering. The cauliflower takes longer to cook than the zucchini so you might want to put that in ahead.
VeggieBelly says to cut the zucchini into 3/4 inch rounds and the carrot 1/2 inch pieces.
6. When the vegetables are cooked, turn off the stove and slowly add the coconut milk.
7. Serve hot and eat! This serves 1-2 people depending on your appetites.
Again, this curry smelled divine while it was cooking. And to think I only had veggies and curry simmering.
On to the taste test, OnigiriJr said it was yummy. Yes, it passed with flying colors. For the ultimate in curry, I suggest you get some really good curry powder.
There’s more spices and alternative veggies you can use. Just consult the original recipe. I like my cooking very simple though so this works for me.
Try it when you’re in the mood for some vegetarian curry!
