Best Curry Ever {Authentic}

I love that this curry starts out with so many fresh vegetables. 

My sister-in-law Renae, made a big pot of this curry for the family the other night…because she’s sweet like that! =) It was so good I’ve been craving it ever since. I only strayed from her recipe a tiny bit by adding a potato for volume but thats totally optional.

I became addicted to roti and curry when we stayed in Bangladesh for 3 months. I now crave it on a regular basis. The curries there were very similar to Indian curries, which I love. Take me back please! 

Whatever you do, please be sure to make roti or naan bread with this! By the time I took these pictures I had already consumed an entire naan with the curry as my dipping sauce. It’s that good. 

The recipe is easier than it looks at first glance. Make it around noon and let it simmer the afternoon away! The delicious aroma will fill your house with happiness. (And make you REALLY hungry!)

These two little munchkins do pretty much everything with me and bread dough has got to be Declan’s favorite thing to play with in the kitchen. Its better than play-dough.

A little follow-up on my recent writings:

  1. On the subject of screen time: I can say that its been a huge blessing to be more focused on DELIGHTING in my kids. Really, truly, focusing in on them and enjoying the moment. 

2. A contented heart: A verse jumped out at me the other day and it confirmed what I’ve felt God speaking in my life. Jesus said, “Take heed and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he posesseth”. Luke 12:15 In America I can have so much but it’s seemingly never enough. There will always be something better than what I have whether its clothing, decor, house items, you name it. But we don’t find our life (happiness) in posessions. If you need a good chapter to read, go to Luke 12. 

I hope you give this curry a try!

Have a great weekend.
