Quick Curry

One of my favorite dishes is curry, it’s simple and easy.  My most favorite one is this one.  Coconut milk, curry powder and split peas are a match made in heaven…

Unfortunately my husband wants to steer away from coconut milk.  (sigh)  I came up with this one one night when I didn’t have much in the cupboard, and was looking for a simple meal.  The secret ingredients here are the cashews.  Don’t leave them out!  If you do, you might as well make the recipe with coconut milk or yogurt.  The cashews just add a nice smoothness to this recipe.  Did I mention it’s EASY?  真的?


1 carrot, diced

1 onion, diced

1 tomato, diced

1 c. raw cashews

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. mild curry powder


Chop everything up, throw it all in a sauce pan with some oil.  Let it cook off the liquid a bit, then add about 2 c. water.  Cover and simmer until everything’s soft, about 30 minutes.  Check to make sure the cashews and carrots are soft.  Turn off the heat and let it cool for 30 minutes, then puree in the blender.  Serve over rice with bananas, raisins, coconut flakes and cilantro. 好吃 🙂
