Carrot Curry Recipe

Versatile carrots always encourage me to experiment. This carrot curry recipe is the result of preparing a staple in our kitchen and creating something out of the ordinary. The curry was a success, well balanced between sweet and hot. The ginger, turmeric and coconut enhanced the natural sweetness of the carrots and the chili added a hint of mild hotness.

It goes well on its own with basmati rice or naan bread but also complements chickpea burgers just as well.

Step by step:

  2. Wash the curry leaves, spin dry them and plug them off their sprig.
  3. Wash the three red chilies split them lengthwise, de- seed them and slice them thinly.
  4. The two onions are peeled and then diced. The three cloves of garlic are prepared in the same way as the onions. Meanwhile the fresh ginger root and turmeric root are scraped or peeled and grated or diced depending on what you prefer.
  5. In a large pan or a pot heat the coconut oil then stir in the mustard seeds. Stir in intervals until the seeds have popped.
  6. Add the curry leaves and the green chilies and fry them for a moment before adding the ginger root and the turmeric root followed by desiccated coconut, cumin and Himalayan salt. Stir frequently. Lastly add the onions and the garlic.
  7. After 3-5 minutes when the onions are translucent, mix under the shredded carrots. Let them cook for five minutes on low to medium heat before adding the can of coconut cream. Simmer until all is heated through.

Basmati rice with a chickpea burger was our choice to complement this dish. It has more a mild and sweetish hot taste with the combination of chili and coconut, while the ginger and turmeric just go well with it. What do you think about this combination?
