It has taken me a full year (maybe 2) to actually make my own curry. I got 2 recipe books loaded with "simple" and healthy curries, but as soon as I looked at the ingredient list, my heart would sink, the book would close, and I would go on to make a soup or stew.
I got the courage to make a curry when I saw all these fresh veggies in my fridge that I wanted to consume but my palate was craving something new. I went to my room, grabbed the curry books and started to skim the pages. Kale and cauliflower were the two veggies that I chose to work with. I ended up finding kale curries, cauliflower curries, and potato curries. Between the mass of recipes I had to choose from, my instincts told me to combine all of them. First, I took the base of the potato curry because I actually had all the ingredients (luckily, I knew I wanted to make curry so I bought coconut milk last week while grocery shopping...nothing helps get you motivated more than actually having the ingredients already!). Next, I used kale and cauliflower to replace the potatoes. Note: I love potatoes and there are so many wonderful health benefits to them, I just did not want them this time. Finally, I started to measure, mix, and cook all of the ingredients until the warm and slightly spicy curry was complete.
The final product:
I hope this recipe inspires you to take courage in yourself in cooking or any aspect of your life. All you need are the right ingredients/tools, a little motivation, and some time to experiment and you will surpass all of your own expectations and conquer all of your dreams!
