Curried Veggies

Curried Vegetables

On a cold winter day, a bowl of curried veggies can really warm you up. There is something about curried dishes that always feel like comfort food to me. The flavor and fragrance of curry always warms me up.

This dish is really a simple one to make. I just sauteed some veggies, then added curry powder and let them all cook together until the veggies got tender. I wouldn’t call it a stew- there is no added liquid, sauce or gravy. Feel free to use the veggies you have around. I used what I have and what I like.

Curry is one of those flavors people seem to love or hate. I am a curry lover. Curry is a blend of spices, so it may vary from one recipe to the next. Depending on the ingredients used, curry can be mild (sweet) or hot. You can buy curry powder at most grocery stores, but the selection will be better at stores that carry international foods. I actually prefer to make my own curry powder. That way I can adjust the seasonings to my taste preference. A recipe for homemade curry powder follows the recipe for the curried veggies.

This dish can be a side dish, a main dish, served on its own or spooned over rice or pasta.


Here is the recipe. Hope you give it a try.
