▪︎ 1 onion, diced

▪︎ 1 thumb-size ginger, minced

▪︎ 1 lb of your choice of meat alternative, Ex. tofu, cubed & surface fried or air-fried (I used Quorn meatless pieces here)

▪︎ 2 cups coconut milk full fat

▪︎ 1/2  cup water.

▪︎ 3  tbsp home made curry powder (recipe below) or curry powder of your choice

▪︎ salt to taste, (prefer Himalayan salt)


? Instructions:

▪︎ In medium heat, saute ginger (either with minimal cooking oil or water for oil-free cooking) for few mins. Then, add garlic & onion with a minute or two in between. Make sure not to burn garlic if using oil to avoid bitter taste.

▪︎ Add potatoes, carrots & curry powder then stir altogether. You may add about half cup of water to avoid burning then cover with the lid. Bring to a simmer & continue to cook for about 10 to 15 mins til veggies are slightly soft.

▪︎ Add in the coconut milk, vegan seasoning of your choice & your alternative meat then turn the heat up til it boils. Lower the heat, stir in the bell peppers, cover & continue to simmer until eveything is cooked.

▪︎ Good for about 4-6 hungry adults. Best served with steamed rice ! Enjoy !
