Quick and Easy Indian Curry (loaded with veggies)


Quick and Easy Indian Curry

We make curry often around here.  This recipe was a little different than our usual curry I make, because it uses curry powder instead of curry paste.  This recipe is more of an Indian curry than a Thai curry.  The verdict: the whole family loved it minus one member. Isaiah wasn’t a huge fan. He ate it… kind of. Skye, on the other hand, devoured it. It probably didn’t help that he had just had a sucker, which he bought with his own money, from doing his chores. I let him use his money how he wants so he can start learning to make his own choices. I still try to steer him to other things. We usually go to the dollar store and get little toys, but that day we were at the grocery store and he wanted a sucker so I let him use his money to buy it.

Okay, on to the recipe. It’s pretty simple; really simple if you buy pre-cut butternut squash. I used to never buy the pre-cut squash, until one day I did. Realizing how awesome it is to not have to hack away at a hard squash, it is hard to buy anything else now.  This recipe is packed with veggies.  For picky eaters you could cut the veggies really small or let them pick one veggie they don’t want to eat.  You could easily add chicken if you wish too.

I served the curry over quinoa. I LOVE quinoa, it is so fast to make, and high in protein   I have even made this curry into freezer burritos by saving half the quinoa and half the curry. Then I wrapped the curry and quinoa up in a whole wheat tortilla and froze them.

I got this recipe from Cook This Not That!

Do you like curry? Have you ever made curry before?

  2. Made it last night and I loved it! Unfortunately, my children are not curry fans. :( But over time I think they’ll grow to like it. Thanks for another great meal!

      Hi Jessica! I’m glad you liked it! My little boy isn’t a big fan of curry either, but we keep working on him. Who knows maybe trying it enough our kids will become big curry fans.

    Wow, that looks good. I’m wondering how strong the coconut flavor is — I’m not a big fan of coconut. I do use coconut oil but the one I have is very subtle and I don’t taste the coconut when I cook with it. But it’s the coconut milk I worry about. Any suggestions for what I could substitute? And can I leave out the jalapeno pepper or just substitute red pepper flakes? Fingers crossed because I’m looking for an easy curry recipe :) Thanks!

      Hi Ellen! You can try organic heavy cream for part of it. That would mellow out the coconut flavor. You might like it though with the coconut milk-fingers crossed:). Yes you can leave out the jalapeno it doesn’t give it heat if you take out the ribs and seeds just really good flavor. But you could try the red pepper flakes.

    Desi!
    I am making this right now! How much lime juice at the end. 1 2, 1/2???
    Thanks for a great recipe. It reminds me of a child hood favorite aloo gobi (cauliflower and potato curry, but much healthier!!!)

      Hi Megan! Just a squeeze of 1 lime. I have made it with the lime and without it, it just brightens the flavors a little bit. If you love the taste of lime you could do more but I think 1 is just right.
