Spicy (to me) Curry


4 potatoes, peeled and

tablespoons vegetable oil

1 yellow onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 teaspoon cayenne

4 teaspoons curry powder

4 teaspoons garam masala

1 (1
inch) piece fresh ginger root, peeled and minced

teaspoons salt

(14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 (15
ounce) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained

1 (15
ounce) can peas, drained

1 (14
ounce) can coconut milk
1 bag of frozen vegan chicken strips
Boil your potatoes for about 15 minutes, or until tender and drain them. Let them sit for a few. 
While waiting for your potatoes, in a BIG skillet (I ended up having to put everything back into my huge pot at the end so it’d all fit) Heat the oil, onion, and garlic for about 5 min. You want the onions to turn translucent. Add the seasoning: cumin, cayenne pepper, curry powder, graham masala, ginger, and salt. Mix it all in and make sure everything is coated for about 2 min. Add your tomatoes, beans, peas, and potatoes you made before! Pour in the coconut milk and simmer. Let it simmer for about 5 to 10 min. 
During the simmer time, make your frozen chicken! Follow instructions on the package. Mine was ready in about 10 min, so it worked perfectly! I then mixed in the chicken, making sure it was nice and coated. 
Yummy! I found it a bit spicy! I’d probably knock down all the spices a bit. But then again I’m a total pansy, my boyfriend didn’t find it too spicy at all. So there’s that! It was still really good though! I’d make it again!

  • Oh my god, this looks so so delicious! For the longest time, I never tried Indian food or flavors because I figured I wouldn't like it and that it would be too spicy, but then in August I went with a friend to an Indian restaurant and I swear my life changed! I'm addicted now!

    This looks so tasty! I'd tone down the spices too, as my three year old isn't the biggest fan of spicy foods. Yum!

  • I almost always tone down the spices, I am a spice wimp!
