To me nothing goes better then cold weather and a good bowl of curry! Usually building a curry broth and all the flavor that comes along with it can take a bit of time. But as a mama to three energetic boys I usually have about 45 minutes to prep and make dinner.
Actually a good curry bowl doesn’t have to be complicated and I think I make a pretty great tasting one in about 30 minutes. The best part is that it can all be done in 1 pot saving me time and the energy to clean up afterwards.
Once you get the flavors you like and learn to make up a good tasting broth you can change up the veggies or protein to switch it up. I don’t think I have ever made the same curry bowl twice because I always use up expiring veggies (another bonus). You can add kale, or eggplant or just keep it simple with cawli and lentils. You get to decide that. So take this recipe as a lose recipe and don’t be afraid to play around with veggies and spices. A great addition is ginger or lemongrass!
OK, enough said now on the the recipe..which is what you really cam here for anyways 😉
