This fast and easy curry dish comes together with ingredients you most likely have on hand, like frozen peas, canned chickpeas, and tomatoes. It’s warming, comforting, delicious, and perfect for cold winter days.
While "curries" are often used in international Indian cuisine, the term generally means “sauce” and is used to describe a wide variety of dishes served in different kinds of sauces.
Most of the time, these dishes do not contain curry powder. However, I used curry powder in this recipe to give this dish a deeper, earthier flavor with a rich golden hue, courtesy of turmeric.
Curry powder is a standard dried spice mixture made with a base of turmeric, red pepper, cumin, and coriander, often also incorporating paprika, fennel seed, mustard, and more.
Many store-bought curry powders are made with very old spices and have almost no flavor. It’s very easy to make your own homemade curry powder using whole spices. There are tons of simple recipes on the internet that you can find, but if you must buy a curry powder, use it while it’s still fresh or buy a small amount in the bulk section of your local co-op or natural health foods store.
If you are not a big fan of richly spiced food, you can omit the curry powder from this recipe and replace it with turmeric only or experiment with your own spices to make it more or less spicy.
This simple, vegetarian curry dish is made with a warming blend of spices and ingredients you likely have on hand. It's great for cold winter days and keeps well in the fridge for leftovers.
