Easy Thai Curry

 

Mike & I developed a taste for curry when we lived in San Diego. We can’t get enough of it now, so I make it myself a few times a month.Easy Thai Curry - Screen shot 2016 06 21 at 10 - Easy Thai Curry

Here’s an easy recipe I love.

Thai Curry IngredientsEasy Thai Curry - Screen shot 2016 06 21 at 10 - Easy Thai Curry

  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped (opt)
  • 1/2 tsp red curry paste
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Sucanat or brown sugar
  • 1 lb chopped vegetables (ie. 1 large carrot, 1 large potato, 1 small head broccoli, cauliflower, peas, etc.)
  • 1 1/2 cans of coconut milk (14 oz size=about 20 oz total. I use 1 can light, and 1/2 a can regular. Coconut fat is healthier than animal fat.)
  • 1/4 C slivered almonds
  • Cooked brown rice (I love brown basmati, and cook it 2 cups to 4 cups of water, boil & simmer on low until cooked)

Directions:

1.  Heat oil in a large skillet or saucepan and cook onions (& peppers if using) on medium high heat for 5 minutes until translucent and starting to brown.Easy Thai Curry - Screen shot 2016 06 21 at 10 - Easy Thai Curry

The curry paste and curry powder are both somewhat spicy, so you may want to use half as much the first time and try more if you like it. The garam masala is a warming spice blend with cinnamon and other things I love. Look for it in the bulk spices at your health food store.Easy Thai Curry - Screen shot 2016 06 21 at 10 - Easy Thai Curry

Healthy and delicious!
