Vegetarian Curry Recipe

This is a fragrant and spicy Vegetarian Curry Recipe that will be loved by all

My kids love to travel – they have been all over the world. This Vegetarian Curry Recipe fast became a family favourite when my youngest son brought it home from his stay in Sri Lanka.

1 onion
2 cloves garlic
4 potatoes
1 1/2 cup rice
1/4 cup oil
1 green hot (chili) pepper, seeds removed
1 red hot (chili) pepper, seeds removed
3 1/2 cups water
1 tin coconut milk
1 tin pineapple pieces
1 tsp. salt
2 green onions, chopped
2 tbsp. store bought curry spice OR
A mixture of coriander, cumin, ginger, fennel seed, mustard seed, nutmeg, cinnamon

Dice the onion and garlic. Peel the potatoes and cut into bite size chunks. Heat the oil in large pot. Sauté the onion. When the onion becomes translucent, add the garlic and the chili peppers. The amount of chili pepper depends on what you like – use less if you wish. After two minutes, add the potatoes, rice and spices and stir so that all the grains of rice are covered in the hot oil and curry spices. Add 3 1/2 cups water and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and cover the pot and simmer for about 10 minutes. At this point the rice should be just a bit under-cooked.

In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk and add the entire (drained) can of pineapple pieces. By now, the rice should be cooked. Pour the coconut-pineapple mixture over the curry and adjust the seasoning. If the curry is too hot, you can add more coconut milk.

Serve the curry in bowls and sprinkle chopped green onion over each serving. If you want to be really authentic, in Sri Lanka, curry is eaten with your hands. My son swears it tastes better that way, but I haven't tried it yet.
