Cauliflower and Pineapple Curry

cvcxvxvcxvcxvcx

Exams are over, and I am going crazy with food!

Being on a ‘eat whatever is around as cooking wastes precious revision time’ diet for over a month, i’ts time to start to going back to my normal life and start cooking!

Celebrating with flavoured beer and lots of olives followed by chocolate, it came to a point where I needed vegetables. Desperately. So a veggie curry was needed, and it was YUM!!!!!

  • 1 Medium Cauliflower
  • 1 Medium Aubergine
  • 1 Onion
  • 3 Small Chillies
  • 5 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Tins of Tomatoes
  • Half a Tin of Pineapple chunks
  • 3 Heaped tbsp of Jalfrezi Curry Paste
  • 1 Chicken Stock cube
  • 2 Cardamom Pods
  • 2 Curry Leaves
  • 2 tbsp of Olive Oil
  • Rice – Half a lemon, starenise, 2 cloves

Start by boiling the cauliflower till soft. Brown off some the diced onion and aubergine in the olive oil, add some water to the frying pan to help the aubergine cook. After five minutes or so add the cauliflower, crush in garlic, and add chillies and pineapple. Add the cardamom pods and curry leaves and follow with 2 tins of tomatoes and 3 tbs of jalfrezi paste. Don’t worry if you have not got the spices, just use more of the paste :D Add the chicken stock (1 stock cube mixed in with half a cup of hot water) and allow the curry to simmer in all the juices for about 10 minutes. Serve with rice, I prepared my rice by adding half a lemon, 2 cloves and a starenise for flavour.

Calories – 1019 kcal for the curry, which makes 5 servings. Remember to add the calories of the rice you are using as it will vary!

Enjoy! Hope this curry warms up these not so sunny summer days.

Love, S

Cheat Vegetarian Curry

Lomogram_2013-04-30_10-13-59-PM

Me recent posts prove how lazy I am getting as a result of excessive exam revision :P

At this stage in the year I need recipes which won’t waste my precious revision time and ones which will keep my tummy full and happy. So here it is, my cheat vegetarian curry, if it takes you longer than 20 minutes to make, I will just assume you were trying to prove me wrong :P

  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 a courgette
  • 1/2 tinned tomatoes
  • 6 mushrooms
  • 1 cup full of spinach leaves
  • 1tbs of Jalfrezi Curry Paste
  • Salt, pepper, chilli for seasoning
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Start by chopping up the onion, mushrooms and courgette into whatever pieces you like, I don’t make mine neat or uniform. Fry in a little bit of olive oil until slightly browned and softened. Add tinned tomatoes and curry paste and allow to cook on a small heat for 5 minutes. Just before taking off the heat add the chopped spinach leaves and mix in until wilted, it should not take any longer than 30 seconds. Season to taste, I think the spicier, the more authentic it seems :P

That is it! Serve with some rice and tuck in! :D

Calories – 280 for the whole dish. Remember to add the calories of the rice or whatever you are enjoying my cheat curry with.

By the way, writing all the halve quantities in the ingredients list made me realise that I never mentioned that I usually make my recipes on a 1 person serving basis. If I am making a bigger portion I will point out how many servings it contains. Sorry, my OCD made me point that out :P
