In this post I wanted to show you just how simple and fast it is to make my delicious midweek Veggie Curry in a hurry. I promise you, if you follow these few simple steps, you can have dinner in half the time it would take to wait for a take-away to be delivered. 

Simple curry is simple to make! There is nothing complicated, expensive, unhealthy or labour intensive about it. Keep things simple with a store bought curry paste or a curry powder blend or use some home-made curry paste (you made earlier) stored in your freezer. You can find my delicious home-made green curry paste recipe here

I find I use the same formula over and over again and it works out beautifully every time.

So here is my basic curry formula:

1 onion, ginger and/or garlic, 2 tablespoons of curry paste, 1 can of light coconut cream, 4 cups of veg and the optional addition of beans or lentils. 

This is the recipe for this week’s incarnation of this simple weeknight staple.
