My friend gave me this recipe, it’s not really a traditional curry, but the taste is epic and different, form common curries.
Takes around three hours to make, but it’s totally worth it.
For my curry i used whatever suitable vegetables, that i had in the fridge. I recommend you do the same, in case you have no veges at all, that you will have to shop.
The important thing is to separate the root vegetables (they go first) from the veges that grow on top of the ground.
Root vegetables take longer time to cook (potatoes, yams, carrots e.t.c)
Whilst the softer types of vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, e.t.c take shorter time.
I do like my curries hot (i mean with a lot of chili), but it’s to your liking.
You can also add a splash of red wine, i did not feel like it today.
After such a long cooking time, vegetables are not overcooked, but actually quite crunchy, and aroma in the kitchen is amazing.
