Tasty Tuesdays: Quick Vegetable Curry
This recipe is so ridiculously easy but it is a really yummy dish. I can cook it quickly as a dish for one (with leftovers) when I don't really know what to do for dinner, and I generally always have all the ingredients. It also wouldn't be a hard recipe to make for lots of people either, you'd just have to increase quantities.
Quick Vegetable Curry
One clove of garlic
125g can chickpeas, drained (optional- I just added them for some protein)
400g can crushed tomatoes
2 teaspoons curry paste (I use Pataks Madras Curry paste)
Cooked white rice, to serve
You can also use any other vegetables you choose, I just used what I had, but I think cauliflower or sweet potato would be lovely with this too.
First, fry your onion and garlic in a oiled pan, then add the other vegetables.
Then stir-fry them all until they are tender. Once they are cooked add the chickpeas and the tinned tomato, once combined add your curry paste. It's a good idea to add your curry paste slowly, testing the heat, especially if you're don't love spices. I quite like hot food, so I sometimes add more than two teaspoons. I'm getting in all the tasty food I can before I have to breastfeed again and go back to bland!
It really is that easy, and so good! I love the freshness and zing to this dish. Enjoy!
