If you are looking for more meat-free recipes or maybe you are vegetarian or vegan, then this Coconut Vegetable Curry is one to try.
I make quite a lot of vegetable-based dishes. I always find it encourages me to eat more healthy vegetables and you really can bulk out a vegetable dish with heaps of different varieties of vegetables.
Some of my favourite recipes are curries. I probably make some sort of curry dish at least once a week. I just love the flavours of spices and how you can turn even the plainest of ingredients into an amazing flavoursome dish.
Curries really don't need to be complicated either, if you are a novice or trying to keep things simple, just a good ole curry powder will do the trick for any amazing curry dish. You can get various different varieties out there, from mild to medium, to hot, even curry powders from different areas of the world.
If I am not making the spice mix myself for a curry, I tend to use a medium curry powder, I like a little bit of heat, but not so hot that it blows your head off. Especially if my kids are going to eat it too.
I also really love coconut milk in my curries. Coconut milk to me just feels luxurious as it makes a curry so silky and glossy and just delicious.
It's great for toning down the heat a notch too if you have over spiced a bit too much and made your curry a little too spicy.
If I am not adding coconut milk to my curry, I tend to add a dollop of plain yoghurt when serving or mix up my own mint yoghurt, depending on the type of curry I am making.
The good thing about using coconut milk though is that is completely dairy free, so a perfect option for those with dairy allergies or if you are following a Vegan diet.
For the vegetables in this Coconut Vegetable Curry, I add red pepper, courgette (zucchini), cauliflower, sweetcorn, and the usual onion, garlic and ginger. I also add in some cooked roughly mashed sweet potato, because they add a lovely natural sweetness to the spice of the curry and also help to thicken the sauce.
You can actually add any vegetables to this coconut vegetable curry, it's great for clearing out the fridge/vegetable shelf before a grocery shop and is perfect for freezing if you make up a big batch.
