Easy Granny’s Curry

Looking for a great winter warmer meal, then there’s simply no better meal especially in the colder months then a good Curry.

This recipe (below) is really easy to make. Non-complicated and super versatile as well.

The Base to this curry is simply:

  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Cumin
  • Chilli
  • Stock
  • Garlic

What I love about this curry recipe and its one that I got from Em, is you can use any meat or even make it vegetarian, or add any vegetable you have in the fridge. Plus you can slow cook it for hour and half or have it ready in 30 minutes. Honestly it’s my go to for a great winter warmer meal.

All the Simple Ingredients

The other great thing is the curry goes with any side dish you have available, such as mash potato, rice, crusty bread or pasta, really anything in the fridge or pantry. I’ve even used it with gnocchi, and we have a homemade recipe for gnocchi here if you want a great addition to you meal.

Em’ loves it with a side dish pf yoghurt and cucumber.

Plus the base r3ecipe freezers really well, so make a double batch for quick re-heat meal. I also like to use Greek yoghurt in the curry but this is up to you and what you like. Sour cream, coconut milk or cream work really well too.

quick Simple Curry Meal

You can also at the start of making the curry is to fry slightly a curry leave if you have them available then add in the onion and fry before adding in the meat and any other ingredients.
