Oh my gosh...I just made the most delish Japanese curry!!!

#1 Postby Eiji » Thu Sep 10, 2015 7:44 pm

So I made a soup the other day...a purée of sweet potatoes, onions, carrots and garlic. It was ok so I spiced it up with some curry seasoning and man it was almost like curry without the chunks of potatoes, carrots and onions. I thought with a little tinkering this could be a perfect curry base without having to add flour to thicken.

In the pot goes:
1 sweet potato sans skin cut into 1" slices
2 large carrots chopped into small pieces
1 apple chopped
1 med onion chopped
1 cup dry lentils
Enough water to cover and bring to boil. While waiting to boil add:
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp earth balance
1 tbsp minced ginger
4-5 cloves garlic
1 bay leaf
1.5 tsp salt
2 -3 tsp garam masala
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds optional


Reduce heat and cover. Simmer 40 min or so
While you wait cube 4 med potatoes, 3-4 carrots, and chop one med onion.

When the 40 min is up puree the contents of the pot and return to the pot. I poured some off to save for another meal after adding some cayenne pepper to taste. I was pretty stoked at this point. Add water to desired consistency. Toss in the cut potatoes and carrots. Cook the onions in a cast iron skillet no oil is necessary and add them to the pot once they are translucent. Oh yeah bring the puree to a simmer and stir ocassionally until the carrots are soft.

Enjoy over brown or white rice. You can also add some cubes of extra firm tofu to increase the protein.
