#27 QUICK MEAL: VEG CURRY



Since it's monday again, here's another quick meal for all of you who are busy but still like to enjoy fresh and beautiful food. And not the same thing everyday.

So here's something I came up with the other day when I myself was tired after uni but still wanted something lovely to eat. I wanted something healthy with vegetables and colours and since I love rice I would have rice with anything.
I had this can of coconut milk left in the cupboard and thought that it would be perfect to just make a little curry with all the colourful vegetables I had in the fridge.
I also added a bit of mango I found in there and it made it really fruity and great. 

It worked out really well, it was really quick because you can make the curry while cooking the rice and the vegetables don't need that long because you want them a little crunchy anyway. 


Lovely Veg Curry
for two

1/2 courgette
1/2 onion
1/2 red pepper
1/4 mango
brokkoli (about the same amount as the other veg)
1 small can of coconut milk
garam masala

rice
butter



for it to be a quick meal you'll want to make the rice
first. so heat a bit of butter in a pan and use
a mug to measure your rice.
once the butter is melted, add the rice and stir it.
fill the mug with warm water (twice) and add
the water to the rice.
lower the temperature to the lowest you can
and leave it for about 10-20 minutes (depends on the rice)

to start with the curry, simply chop all the veg
and the mango into whatever size pieces you like
(wouldn't make it them too small though).
in a pan heat up some coconut fat or whatever
you like to use and stir fry the veg for about 2 minutes
over high heat.
add the garam masala and stir fry for a few more
seconds.
then add the coconut milk (and if you want
you can add some veg stock aswell)
and lower the heat and leave it to simmer
until the rice is done.

add some salt and whatever else you like
and enjoy your fresh quick meal!
