While I was heating up yesterdays curry for lunch today, I thought.. Why not share a delicious dinner recipe with you guys! Other then making sweet things in the kitchen, I also really enjoy making hearty evening meals. Soups, stews, anything that goes into a big pot an can simmer away I love. These types of meals warm you up, satisfy your stomach and can (almost) never go wrong. In case a stew get’s too thick or even a soup, make some pasta and you have a delicious sauce. I mean.. in any way, you’ll have a tasty dinner. Another positive thing about these “stew” recipes is that you’ll have a great lunch the day after too. Most of the times, it will even taste better the day after.
So, for anybody that is interesting in having a “meatless Monday” or is a vegetarian or vegan, I encourage you to try this recipe out! It is easy, and has a lot of flavor inside. With some curry recipes, they expect you to first go to an exotic supermarket to find the right spices, but you’ll see that you will have most of them already at home.
What you’ll need:
(This is for the base)
- 1 large onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons curry powder
- 1 teaspoon Garam Masala
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 1/2 teaspoon paprika powder
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme (I used 3 teaspoons of the fresh leaves)
- 1/2 cayenne powder
- salt and pepper
(What goes inside)
- 4-5 medium potatoes
- 1-2 cans of chickpeas
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 2 cups vegetable stock
- 2 scallions
- fresh parsley
- Heat up oil in a big pot, and put all the ingredients for the base inside. Let it cook for about 3 minutes until the onion will be translucent.
- If the spices are sticking to a pan, add a little bit of water.
- Add in the potatoes, chickpeas, can of tomatoes and vegetable stock.
- Let it simmer for about 15-20 min until the potatoes are cooked and the sauce has thickened.
- It is best to serve this with some rice, so make this in the meantime.
- At the end, add in the scallions and some fresh parsley.
- Maybe add some salt when needed, and enjoy!
- When you will have something left, save it because it is even better the next day.
