« on: November 05, 2007 08:00:05 PM »

it snowed a few days ago and i've taken the task of cancelling all my plans and beginning to burrow/nest for the winter.  this has involved the consuming of tea/cookies infront of movies (and knitting), tidying, and well, cooking! this curry comes to you in celebration of the few inches of permanent snow on the ground and the warmth brought about by the new iron and wine album! so good!

anyway, almost all of the vegetables are from the veggie box i get at my uni through the p!rg group on campus every week ($20 organic veggie box, nice!) we haven't consumed it yet, but my eyes are burning from the onions and the house smells like curry! yum! so enjoy!

chop and sautee in a bit of oil/water (on med-high):
3 cippolini onions, chopped (can substitute with red onions or shallots)
8 small All blue potatoes, chopped

stir until onions are browning, add water the minute it smells like it's heading to burning territory.  once you add the water stir in one honkin' large tablespoon of yellow curry paste.  add 1.5 tablespoons cumin and 1 tsp salt. stir and maintain heat.

add 1/2 cauliflower separated into med sized florets. stir to coat with curry/water base.

add 1 can chunky coconut milk. smash up the coconut bits and stir well.

add 2 fuji/gala apples, chopped, stir. reduce heat to just below medium (so it can simma)

add 1 large handful fresh spinach on top of the curry, dont stir (you want it to steam off the top of the curry).

after 10 minutes or so, stir the spinach in. cook on med-low until your veggies reach the consistancy that you like to eat.  IF there is too much liquid and you'd prefer a sauce, mix up some corn starch with water and pour in to thicken.

we serve this over short grain brown rice (my favourite, and the most wholesome really) and with yoghurt (we have lemon mediterranean yoghurt) and pumpkin seeds. yum!

*substitution note: if you are NOT using the blue potatoes but a softer potato, add them in with the cauliflower b/c they wont hold their shape like the little blue ones!

*poverty note: i know that this sounds expensive to make, but rest assurred, it's not that expensive, really.  the veggies probably cost a total of $5, the rice $1, the paste was $3 (and makes around 16 curries), and the coconut milk, because we bought it in a bulk order was $1.25. it makes two full dinner meals and lunch for the next day (or a container for the freezer).
