Quick, easy and amazing vegetable Curry
I’m not a vegetarian, I never will be. I do feel comfort in the knowledge that the animals I do consume have had the best life possible. I still can’t look a piglet straight in the face though……….
This is one of the vegetarian dishes I would bite your arm of for…..ironic that……! This is a super fast, super easy vegetarian’s dream, hot spicy and creamy, in truth you really would not notice the absence of any meat in this dish – the big robust vegetables stand well on their own.
1 medium yellow courgette – chopped
1 medium aubergine – chopped
1 medium red onion – chopped
3 cloves garlic – minced
100 grms shredded spring cabbage
100 grms button mushrooms
1 tbs cumin powder
2 tps turmeric
1 tbs coriander powder
1 tbs gara masala
2 tps chili powder
2 curry leaves
1 stalk of lemon grass bashed up
Big squirt of tomato paste
1/2 can coconut milk
200mls vegetable stock
This is a one pot wonder, I make it in a flat bottomed wok as it’s really handy. Start by frying off the courgette, aubergine, garlic, onion, mushrooms and cabbage in some veg oil – everything in!
Saute the veggies down for about 4 minutes and add some water if things start to get a little dry, add the tomato paste, cumin, coriander, lemon grass, gara masala, turmeric and chili powder all in one go and mix well until everything is coated with spices and tomato paste.
Cook out the mix now for about 2-3 minutes continually moving everything around the wok on a low heat.
Next add the stock, curry leaves and the coconut milk and simmer everything for about 6-8minutes.
Serve the curry with garlic flat breads or jasmine rice.
