Curried Dinner

Living Well encourages you to Eat Well!  But that does not mean it has to cost a lot!


2 teaspoons olive oil
½ a bulb of fresh garlic, each piece peeled and roughly chopped
1-1/2 large onions, diced
2 diced tomatoes (or 1 can of diced tomato)
3 tablespoons curie powder
Salt, pepper or garlic powder to taste
2cups chunked raw chicken, or pork (you can use fish too I guess.  Beef is NOT traditional at all in India, but I suppose one could break with tradition and try it!!)

Add veggies as desired, or available, or as you like them!!! (my chosen this evening were cauliflower, red bell pepper, tomato, potato, and frozen green peas!)
2 carrots cut in little chunks
2 stalks celery, cut in 3rd long way, then cut in 1/2" chunks
1-2 cups cauliflower in bite size pieces
6-8 asparagus stems cut in 1/2" chunks
1-2 cups potato in bite sized cubes

1.            Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until soft and golden brown. Slowly stir in curry powder. Once ingredients are blended together, add meat, tomato, and cook 15 minutes.  Add remaining veggies. Cover skillet and simmer over medium low heat for about 30 minutes or until meat is cooked through and no longer pink inside.
2.            Remove cover from skillet and cook for an additional 15 minutes, until sauce reduces. (Note: Make sure that you stir and that dish does not burn, as curry powder burns very easily!)
3.            Serve over cooked brown Jasmine Rice with plain yogurt.

Eat well, 
Live Well
