Our version of curry from India

Last spring we fell in love with the food from India again. Fragrant curries, spiced rice, spicy chutneys and cooling raitas. After cooking a myriad of different curries from different cookbooks, we put together this curry ourselves from several other recipes. And the reactions are always enthusiastic!

Ingredients

  • 20 g grated ginger
  • 20 g grated garlic
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 50 g cashew nuts
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 250 g green beans or broccoli
  • 250 g carrots or sweet potato
  • 3 table spoons ghee (clarified butter) or sunflower oil
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons coriander
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garam massala
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons asafoetida (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 200 ml water

Instructions

  • Soak the cashew nuts in a few tablespoons of water.
  • Mash the garlic cloves and ginger and mix them together. You can also buy a jar of ginger-garlic puree.
  • Given the amount of spices that are used, we recommend that you measure all herbs in advance and have them ready. You can keep everything together in one bowl.
  • Cut the tomatoes into very small pieces.
  • Now heat the ghee or sunflower oil in a heavy-bottomed pan.
  • Add the spices and mix well. Your kitchen is already starting to smell like India.
  • After a few minutes, add the tomatoes and mix well.
  • Add the water to the tomato spice mixture and bring to the boil.
  • In the meantime, puree the soaked cashew nuts or grind them as finely as possible in a mortar.
  • Add the cashew nut puree to the tomato spice mixture.
  • Now let it simmer for 20 minutes. The cashew nut soup provides a thick sauce.
  • Now add the coconut milk, bring to the boil again and cook your cleaned vegetables in this curry.
  • Taste and season with more salt and pepper if necessary.
