Ready in 20 minutes. A quick and easy from-scratch Curry recipe.
I think most people like a good curry, especially in the winter season or in general when its cold and wet outside and you need something to warm you up. You clearly could just go and buy curry paste or ready meal after a long day at work, but let me tell you it’s so easy to just pick a couple of spices from your spice rack, and cook from scratch something that will make you feel good. Adding that the shelf bought items usually have loads of sugar added to them.
Now this curry is so easy and I literally just winged it after work and I was not sure what to cook for Mr G and me. He is usually a meat eater. So, my recipe idea was perfect because it can be veggie or with meat if needed.I added chickpeas to it, because i just love having chickpeas in my meals and they are adding such nice texture and flavor and are good for you as well.
I am not too good with hot curry’s, this one is mild and even suitable for kids. You can of course spice it up to your liking. As for leftovers, those can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the fridge. Or you can freeze it of course and keep it for longer for another day.
I am usually cooking Basmati rice for curry’s, but any other type of rice will be just fine, depending on what you have at home. This recipe will also keep well in the fridge for up to 2 days. I often find that curries taste even better reheated the next day!
