Curry with Coconut Milk Ingredients

WHAT MAKES A GOOD CURRY

There are four main components to a delicious and flavorful curry.

  • Coconut Milk
  • Spices
  • Sauté garlic, onion, and ginger
  • Colorful veggies

Coconut Milk – The coconut milk in this curry will create its body and give this curry the sauce it needs to soak up your rice and veggies. It is a simple ingredient yet brilliantly pairs well with your spices and veggies.

It’s important to note that many curry dishes use coconut milk, cream or yogurt. The only problem with cream or yogurt is that it can slow down your digestion. In this curry, we’ll keep it simple with coconut milk. You can begin to take note of how you feel after eating certain dishes.

Spices – A curry is not complete without generous spices. The great thing about making your own curry with coconut milk is that you can play with the amount of spice. Each of our flavor palettes are a little bit different and that’s okay. You know your body best so taste test this curry with coconut milk recipe and find out.

Cover this curry with coconut milk with a lid and cook for 10-15 minutes to soften the veggies. If you notice it is boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer.

For serving, enjoy this curry over rice or as is. I love to top with freshly chopped coriander.

You can store the leftovers for 5 days in an air tight container in the fridge. When reheating on the stovetop, make sure to add in more coconut milk.
