Vegetable Korma Recipe

In solidarity of our Indian friends celebrating Diwali last weekend, I made this classic vegetable korma. It was really delicious and easy to make!

The usual, authentic version is vegetarian and vegan, but I added (completely optional) fish to round it out as a more fully balanced meal. It is good either way.

Leftovers of this taste great too!

Vegetable Korma Recipe

Blend in a blender or food processor and process until smooth:⠀
1 medium onion, peeled and halved⠀
3 cloves garlic, peeled & roughly chopped⠀
1-inch piece ginger, peeled & roughly chopped⠀
1 green chili, chopped (optional)⠀
1/4 cup raw cashews⠀
1/2 cup water⠀⠀

Measure out the spices into a little bowl:
2 tsp curry powder⠀
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder⠀
1/8 tsp ground cardamom⠀
1 tsp ground turmeric powder⠀
1 tsp garam masala⠀
1/2 tsp coriander powder⠀
1/2 tsp salt (or to taste: we added finishing salt at the table)⠀
1/2 tsp ground black pepper⠀

Other ingredients:⠀
1 tbsp avocado oil
2 small tomatoes, diced⠀
1 can unsweetened full-fat coconut milk⠀
1 sweet potato, peeled and diced⠀
1 cauliflower cut into florets⠀
1 cup bell peppers, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
4 tilapia loins (or any mild white fish) (completely optional)⠀
chopped fresh cilantro (for garnish)⠀

Place the onion, garlic, ginger, chili, and cashews in a blender along with 1/2 cup of water. Process until smooth.⠀

Heat the oil in a large pot. Once hot, pour the blended sauce base mixture into the pot.

Add all your spices and allow to cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until fragrant.

Add the coconut milk, vegetables, and fish (if using). Stir well, cover the pot, and allow to simmer on medium/low heat for 10-12 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender, and the fish (if using) has flaked apart.

Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.

Makes 4-6 servings⠀

    Sounds delicious but not easy for one with a limited larder.

    Tried pecan butter last week (Costco).
    Delicious….for non-compulsive eaters only!
