The curry paste is packed with a heap of lemongrass and lime leaf. Make sure you give it a good fry to help break it down.

 

 

Instructions

1

Dice onion.

Peel and dice kumara into 2 cm slices.

2

Heat a drizzle of oil in a saucepan over a medium heat, add the onion and sweat for 3 minutes. Next add the curry paste and cook for another 1 or 2 minutes.

Bring a large pot of water with a pinch of salt to the boil to cook the rice.

3

Add kumara to the curry, along with coconut cream, then rinse the coconut cream tin with half the amount of water. Add to the curry. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 10 minutes, or so. Add more water, if necessary.

4

Rinse rice thoroughly under a cold tap, until the water runs clear. Add the rice to the boiling water, bring back boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally.

5

Prep the broccoli by removing the stalk. Peel the stalk with a knife and then cut into 1 cm rounds. Cut the broccoli head into long florets.

Cut the mushrooms into bite sized pieces.

Add the broccoli stalk and florets to the curry. Cook for about 5 minutes, then add the mushrooms and simmer until all the vegetables are just cooked, about 5 minutes.

6

Right before you are about to serve, stir in the bean sprouts. Taste and add more salt, if needed.

If you want to toast the coconut, do so by placing in the oven under the grill for a minute, or two.

7

Serve rice in bowls and top with the curry. Garnish with the toasted coconut and peanuts. Enjoy!
