I have my chicken curry made and that’s bubbling away nicely. Now normally we would be having some rice and or Naan bread with it. But today’s challenge is to not have the rice, and have loads of veggies instead.
I used to try and make veggie curries, but I always found that I either ended up with undercooked veg or mush.
So this is my new favourite toy in the kitchen, and I use it a lot. I mentioned it in the Roast Mediterranean Vegetables video too, it’s an air fryer. And in here I have been air frying, in a tiny bit of olive oil, some red peppers, onions, some butternut squash and some courgette. I have found that this is certainly for me the quickest and easiest way of gets loads more veg in my curry.
My veggies took about 20 minutes in the air fryer, the same time as my curry to this stage. And now all I do is pop my lovely sautéed veggies into my curry for the last couple of minutes. Let that heat through. And there you go.
Because you are only mixing them through, they keep their nice, distinct shape and textures that make the curry all the more interesting
Give my idea a try, or let us know how you sneak your veggies into curry. And if you got a good recipe, let me know!
