This week our lovely PACT volunteer and fabulous cook Kolpona shared a vegetable curry with the Family Food Club, see below for the full recipe.

Kolpona’s Vegetable Curry

Kolpona shared a tasty vegetable curry with the Family Food Club. It’s a great option because you can use any vegetables you like so it’s nice and flexible for whatever you find in your kitchen! Also, the spices are used for a wide variety of dishes so are well worth having in your cupboard.

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 Tomato, sliced (can also use tomato puree)

Green beans, chopped

Peppers, chopped

Tinned sweetcorn

Butternut squash, chopped

½ Cup lentils, rinsed

1 Teaspoon coriander powder

3- Lower the heat and put lid on the pan, occasionally stirring until onion has softened

4- Add coriander powder, turmeric and chili stir then put the lid on for 2 minutes

5- Add the lentils and a touch of water and put on a medium heat with lid on

Maria didn't have any lentils so she added red beans and it turned out great!
