Corn, Potato, Tomato Curry

IMG_8441

I love curries, but I’ve never made a curry with corn in it before. I was kind of skeptical at what this dish was going to turn out like. But I guess I am someone of little faith sometimes, because this dish turned out perfect. For about 525 calories (which includes 1 cup of rice) I got a delicious and healthy meal. And the colors of the dish, the red, yellow, and green, are so pretty. I accidentally put more coconut milk in the curry than what the original recipe called for, but I ended up really liking the more soupy texture of the dish. With the rice, it was great.

It was easy and was a great lunch!

In other news, school started this week. Life has suddenly got a little more hectic.

  1. Well, great. Seems like I have another recipe that calls for 1/2 can of coconut milk that I never tried, because what was to be done with the rest of it? This will work nicely. Looks delicious.

  2. I just got some curry powder from Penzeys today. I really like the vegetarian curries at my local Indian restaurant, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen corn in theirs either. It sounds good, though.

  3. Here’s my confession: I have never cooked with curry. I eat curry several times a month, but always out. I need to start adventuring into this cooking world! Do you have a cookbook you’d recommend?
