Healthy Recipe: Vegetable Curry With Chef Shaikh's

Healthy Recipe: Vegetable Curry With Chef Shaikh's

I absolutely love curry, but when I try to mix the spices myself, it never really comes out the way it should. That's why I love to use a pre-made curry sauce like this one from Chef Shaikh's. The sauce itself is really healthy. Each serving contains 45 calories, 1g of fat, 120mg of sodium, 7g of carbs, 3g of fiber, 3g of sugar, and 2g of protein. And adding a variety of veggies makes it even healthier.

Healthy Recipe: Vegetable Curry With Chef Shaikh

Ingredients

1 cup rice
1 jar of Chef Shaikh's Curry Sauce (or any other curry sauce)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup vanilla soymilk
1 sweet potato
2 Yukon gold potatoes
2 medium carrots
1 red pepper
1 can garbanzo beans
1/2 cup diced pineapple

Directions

  1. Boil two cups of water. Then add the rice, cover the pot, and lower to simmer.
  2. Now pour the curry sauce, coconut milk, and soymilk in a separate pot and put on high heat.
  3. While that's cooking, cut up all the veggies. Add all the potatoes to the curry mixture. Lower the heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. Open the can of beans, rinse them, and mix them in with the curry and potatoes. Add the carrots and red peppers.
  5. Cook this uncovered until the liquid begins to thicken up, another 15 minutes. Test the potatoes and once they're nice and soft, add the pineapple. If you used canned pineapple, you can also add some of the juice. Then remove the curry from the heat.
  6. Now it's ready to eat. Spoon out some rice in a bowl, pour some of the vegetable curry on top and you've got yourself a deliciously satisfying meal full of fiber, protein, and flavor.

This looks WONDERFUL! My son is allergic to soymilk so I'll probably use all coconut milk. (A little more fattening, but yum!)

When I make my curry, I throw in as many veggies as I can get away with. So to the recipe above, I'd do just one type of potato and add broccoli, cauliflower, snow peas, water chestnuts and a tomato. Then, I'd top it with a couple slices of avocado and a handful of crushed cashews. For me, Indian food is all about the textures... plus more veggies means you can stretch the servings a little farther!

Curry is one of my staples.... it's delish and healthy especially if you use low-fat coconut milk.

unsweetened rice milk could be good too in lieu of vanilla soymilk..

I love curry! I'll have to look for pre-made curry sauce at the store. I'm pretty sure you can find it in the ethnic foods section at most major grocery stores. I think if I make this recipe, I'll try it with regular milk...I don't know if I would like the vanilla soy milk too much.

i'm so new to the curry thing since i used to have a fear of it, so a product like this is great for me. i know that i would mess it up if i tried to follow a recipe so if i can get it pre-made then it's a big help for my dinner!
