veggie curry

for stillsostrange and others

In a heavy bottomed pan with a lid, heat enough olive oil to cover. Sautee about half a big onion until translucent, add three or four cubed red potatoes and one half cup of red lentils. One can of tomatoes (diced or just peeled) and a can of chicken or veggie broth, depending on whether you are a carnivore or not.

Curry powder, red pepper, black pepper, garlic to taste. Simmer until the potatoes and lentils are soft (~45 minutes). Add green veg--spinach, peas, mustard greens, kale, as you like it. Turn off. Cover and let sit ten minutes.

Serve with a squeeze of lime and nummy nummy yogurt on top. Does not need accompanying starch. It's full of potatoes, man. And comes out quite dry.

Yield: enough for a msall army. This is loaves and fishes cooking.



I made a curry-spiced soup last night that turned out pretty good, though I could have used some other vegetables.
peas or greens are always good in curry...
Or cauliflower.
Ah, brilliant! Recipes are great - I wish I saw more on LJ.

Hope you got to eat a good curry on your travels in the UK!
Sounds tasty!
There seems to be a cooking meme in the air -- I made farro soup over the weekend, and a brisket tonight...

This recipe sounds great! Thanks for posting it.

This does indeed sound tasty. Have you experimented with coconut milk in this recipe?
It doesn't need any added fat. It's a non-creamy tomato-based vegetable and protein dish, not a liquid curry, and certainly not spicy enough to need ameliorating. I can't imagine but that coconut milk would make it really cloying.
Yum. I bet it would be good with assorted root veggies instead of just potatoes... Parsnips, rutabegas, yams, turnips. Or maybe even some butternut squash.

Damn. Now I've got to experiment.
Thank you; this looks delicious.
