Vegetable Curry dishes are very popular and with good reason. The spices are bold and the sauce is creamy. Team that up with loads of veggies and rice for this great meal.
I think everyone loves any kind of curry. A homestyle sauce made with strong spices and mixed with veggies. It goes so well with rice that I think that is the most favored base.
It never ceases to amaze me at how many different variations of curry recipes there are.
Not only that, it seems you can always come up with another one that is original and equally delicious.
And it's also nice to have extra sauce that you spoon generously over the rice.
It's easy to fix if the sauce has got cooked down a little too far also. Just add a little more broth and a little more coconut milk, heat through and there you are. All fixed.
The spice mix garam masala is in this recipe and you can buy it by the bottle or you can make a homemade mixture. I have a recipe on the blog and garam masala uses some really great herbs.
You probably have a lot of them already, if not all. Here's a visual of the great spice mix garam masala.
You can almost call this a one pot meal but you have to cook the rice so - two pots. Even with that the recipe is super easy and fast.
Start the rice while you're cooking everything else and you end up with it all coming together at about the same time.
