Curry is one of my favourite flavours and many people think you need to have a complicated curry paste in order to enjoy the flavour. With this simple recipe just using spices and water, you can get the yummy curry flavour in under 15 min!
Ingredients – serves 1-2
- 1 cup uncooked quinoa
- 1/2 cup uncooked black rice
- 3 cups water
- 2 medium carrots
- 1-2 cups frozen peas
- spices of choice: curry, cumin, paprika, turmeric
- salt and pepper
Step 1: Cook your carb base in a rice cooker or on the stove. I made a quinoa and wild rice base by adding them into my rice cooker with 3 cups water on the “White Rice” setting.
Step 2: Peel and chop your carrots into bite-sized pieces. I cut the carrots in half length-wise, then 1cm wide.
Step 3: Add carrots to a pan on high heat with a splash of water. The water steams the veggies while keeping them from sticking to the pot. You might need to add more water throughout the cooking as it evaporates.
Step 4: After about 8-10min when the carrots are pretty soft, add the frozen peas.
Step 5: Add whatever spices you like, and salt and pepper to taste. I probably added too much spice here for 1 serving. Start small and you can always add more!
Step 6: Add water until the curry is at your desired consistency. I like mine watery like this.
Step 7: Plate and enjoy!
