Today, I wanted to share with you a dinner recipe that we’ve made a few times now – a new regular in our house and part of my efforts to try new things.
When we order Indian food, I always get Chicken Korma, and Jeff gets Chicken Curry. I figured since I love Indian so much (but don’t love how much it costs and how salty it can be!) I could make something similar at home – enter this recipe from Half Baked Harvest. This recipe is so easy to throw together and have for a weeknight, and it makes the most delicious leftovers.
I made this the first time exactly to the recipe – something I always try to do the first time around before I get deep into experimenting with what I like, and something I recommend to you, too. Unless you really loathe an ingredient, I suggest trying what someone’s written and seeing what happens. The second time I made it, I used one less tablespoon of chili paste (because the first time I got the hiccups!) and used one small head of broccoli and two heads of bok choy, because I love the flavor of bok choy. I also used double the garlic (because duh) and just use olive oil (also because duh). It was just as delicious, I promise.
I served this over Trader Joe’s fast-cooking brown rice, but you can use whatever grain you like – jasmine rice would be delicious, I bet, or quinoa, or even just over a big ole piece of naan – whatever’s your fave.
Next time, if I am feeling crazy, I might mix in some cashews, even, and throw in some cauliflower or roasted potatoes and skip the rice. Stay tuned for different iterations of this new fave!
