Homemade vegetarian curry...

I never used to like Indian food, curries were always too spicy and I hate coriander but recently I have been experimenting with trying different recipes and I have finally found a curry recipe that I love. I am even warming to coriander- I know, who am I?! Mark and I are obsessed with these garlic and coriander naans from M&S. It is pretty lethal having a mini M&S at the garage up the road, their food is far more delicious than our food budget allows... 




Ingredients:

* Cumin seeds
* Coriander
* Potatoes
* Peppers
* Carrots, brocolli and peas
* Tomatoes
* Butternut squash
* Onion
* Spinach and kale
* Coconut milk
* Curry paste (I love both the red Thai and the jambalaya paste from Tesco)



Fry some cumin seeds and coriander in a splash of oil until the cumin seeds are brown and popping around the pan.


Boil your potatoes, carrots and butternut squash until cooked. Add all of your veg into a pan and fry until browned. 


Add a tin of coconut milk and simmer at a low heat.  


Add a couple of dollops of curry paste (technical term but just add to taste) and stir into the mix. Your mixture should be bubbling away at a low heat. 


Shred some spinach and stir into your curry.


Add some kale and simmer for a few more minutes until the kale is softened. 


Serve piping hot with naan bread and enjoy!

I used to hate coriander too! I don't mind it now in certain dishes, but if it's overpowering I can't eat it! I've never been a big curry fan either, which is weird because I love spicy food & there are soo many vegetarian options too.

I actually don't mind coriander but it's such a strong herb I can definitely understand why not everyone is partial to it. Your curry looks absolutely delicious though! Loving the cooking posts x

SO that is what you do with Kale! I never really knew. I love the sound of this, toasting spices is so satisfying for the old nose!

Garlic and coriander is such a good combination. Also, butternut squash in a curry? GENIUS. Thanks for sharing, Maria! <3
