Banging Easy Vegetable Curry (Chickens lil sis!)
Banging Easy Vegetable Curry! Named as such because it’s simply banging! It’s so good and full of vegetables!
I do love a well balanced curry and this one is seriously good.
Just look at those colours!
And bonus it’s vegetarian too!
It has a lovely blend of vegetables.
I don’t know about you but I adore potatoes and cauliflower in a curry – yum!
This Vegetable curry recipe makes 4 large portions and at 4 Weightwatchers SmartPoints per serving you’ll be wondering why you never made it before!
And for SW it’s it’s 4 Syns for the Elmlea and skimmed milk (5) if you’re not using your Healthy A.
And 4 for the Paste So I make that 3 Syns per portion or 2 Syns per portion if you are counting milk as Healthy A!
The Vegetables in your Banging Vegetable Curry
You can basically go for anything
I think potato & Cauliflower are a must as they sort of give your curry some body
Then just go colours!!
The Curry Paste for your Vegetable Curry
Now there’s a rule – I insist you use the below Curry paste.
It’s ‘not an ad’ at all but it delivers the best flavour in this dish. I have worked hard to get it working really well.
In this recipe I use 2 teaspoons and I’d say this is a medium curry hit. As it’s a creamy fragrant coriander type curry, it works well.
Don’t be put off by it saying madras – it’s nowhere near that heat!
Coriander / Cilantro for your Curry
And there’s a second rule to this recipe use FRESH coriander not dried – it simply doesn’t work!
Fresh Coriander is so fragrant and fresh, it’s my favourite herb.
In the US they call it Cilantro, so if you ever see a recipe that calls for it then you know you can substitute with Coriander
To Serve your Vegetable Curry
You could serve with:
Plain boiled rice
Mini Naan (Syns)
Or maybe onto of a Jacket Potato /- flipping delicious, I promise you!
Sometimes I also add more liquid and simply have it as a thick soup, so delicious?
Also I tend to double up and pop it in individual serving dishes / foils in the freezer! I love a bit of batch cooking.
It’s so lovely when you suddenly realise you have wonderful homemade curry in the freezer, especially on those busy evenings. And so healthy too
