How about some comfort food? I was craving this hearty, spicy and creamy tikka masala. So I made "tikka" free masala 😆 Honestly, this is delicious with lentils, chickpeas, white fish, chicken, or just vegetables!
I made mine vegetarian and added celery root cubes which turned out to be a great addition!
This is really easy to make at home...
1 TBSP coconut oil or ghee for frying
1 large onion, finely chopped
1-2 garlic cloves
5 cm piece of fresh ginger, grated
400ml plum tomatoes or cubed tomatoes (1 tin)
200ml full fat coconut milk
1 tsp cumin seeds or powder
2 tsp garam masala and coriander powder
sea salt to taste (or chicken or vegetable broth - no sugar and yeast!)
1/2 tsp smoked paprika powder
chili to taste
vegetables of your choice: I used 1 leek, 1/2 celery root cut in cubes. Spinach or kale would go well with this as well or green cabbage
protein of your choice: 1 tin of lentils, chickpeas or 500g of chicken breast or white fish
fry some onions over medium heat until brown and add garlic and ginger and cook for about a minute
if using meat or fish, you can place your breasts or filets in an oven safe dish and pour the mix over your meat/fish and bake it for 20-30 minutes in the oven at 180°C or cut it in small cubes and add to the dish before adding the tomatoes. In this case you would fry it on both sides until almost done.
add garam masala, coriander and cumin spice and stir well
add tomato cubes
add sea salt or vegetable or chicken stock
add vegetables of your choice and cook for 5 minutes
add 200 coconut milk
add lentils or chickpeas and let simmer at low heat for about 20-30 minutes
add smoked paprika and chillies to taste at the end
serve with fresh coriander over rice or quiona
