Vegetarian Korma

Although this recipe is for vegetarian korma, you could easily substitute chicken or white fish for the potatoes & carrots. Yum!

Serves 4

1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, diced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 potatoes, cubed
4 carrots, cubed
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced
3 tablespoons ground unsalted cashews
4 ounces canned tomato sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder (yellow), divided
1 cup frozen green peas
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup heavy cream
milk, if needed
salt to taste
1 bunch fresh cilantro for garnish

1.Microwave cubed potatoes and carrots to give them a head start on cooking. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, sprinkle with 1/2 tbsp of curry and cook until tender. Mix in ginger and garlic, and continue cooking 1 minute. Mix potatoes, carrots, jalapeno, cashews, and tomato sauce. Season with salt and remaining curry powder. Cook and stir 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

2.Stir peas, red bell pepper, and cream into the skillet. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Add milk if a saucier consistency is desired. Taste for seasoning, adding more curry powder or salt, if needed. Serve over white or basmati rice and garnish with chopped cilantro.

Thanks for sharing this to us! Though I also eat vegetarian dishes, I'd love this more with a little bit of meat, like you suggested. I would love to share this recipe to other Foodista readers by adding a foodista widget at the end of this post, just if you don't mind. Thanks and keep them coming! :)
