Thai Green Curry

{ A VEGETARIAN TAKE ON A FAVOURITE THAI DISH. FORGO ONE OF THE CHILLIES TO MAKE THIS SUITABLE FOR THOSE WHO PREFER LESS HEAT. }

{ INGREDIENTS }

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 spring onion

2 red chillies, finely sliced

3 tablespoons of gluten free green curry paste

1 red capsicum, finely sliced

1 green capsicum, finely sliced

1 broccoli, cut into small pieces

1 zucchini, cut in small chunks

1 carrot, cut in small chunks

1 large sweet potato, cut in small chunks

750 ml tinned reduced-fat coconut milk

3 kaffir lime leaves

1 cup spinach, roughly chopped

1 tablespoon of lime juice

Coriander to garnish

{ METHOD }

Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat.

Add the garlic, spring onion and one of the chillies. Stir until lightly browned, then add the green curry paste.

Add all the vegetables and coat well in the paste. Don’t worry if the wok seems rather full, the vegetables will reduce in size significantly.

Pour in half of the coconut milk and add the kaffir lime leaves. Mix well.

Cover the wok with a lid for five to 10 minutes, lifting it to stir occasionally.

Remove the lid after 10 minutes, add the remaining coconut milk and spinach, then simmer for a further 15 minutes on low-medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Insert a knife into a sweet potato chunk to test if it’s soft. If it’s still a little hard, continue to simmer for five more minutes. Otherwise, stir through the lime juice, then remove the wok from the heat.

Garnish with coriander and the remaining chilli.

Serve with brown rice.

Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry

{ A CLASSIC NORTH INDIAN LENTIL DISH, THIS CAN BE DRAMATIC LOOKING, AS THE YELLOW LENTILS STAND OUT FROM THE SMALLER BLACK PULSES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS LUSCIOUS AND DELICIOUS. ONCE THE LENTILS SOFTEN, THE MORE YOU STIR THEM THE CREAMIER THEY BECOME. LENTILS AND BUTTER GO REALLY WELL TOGETHER, SO I DO RECOMMEND YOU ADD A LITTLE BUTTER AT THE END BEFORE SERVING. THIS IS GREAT WITH RICE OR INDIAN BREADS. }
