A simple curry recipe. This is a vegetarian curry recipe, but you can always modify the recipe by adding extra protein such as chicken breasts or add other vegetables such as spinach, tomatoes, or kale to add the nutritional value. Enjoy with rice, cauliflower rice or quinoa. You can add a few tablespoons of (unsweetened) coconut milk to make it creamier.
