Vegetarian Yellow Curry Instructions:
- Prepare the Curry Paste:
- In a small bowl, mix together the yellow curry paste, grated ginger, and minced garlic to create the curry paste mixture. Set aside.
- Cook the Curry:
- In a large pot or deep skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and sauté until translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add Vegetables:
- Add the sliced carrots, red and yellow bell peppers, zucchini, cauliflower, and broccoli to the pot. Sauté the vegetables for about 5-7 minutes, until they start to soften.
- Add Curry Paste and Spices:
- Push the vegetables to the side of the pot and add the curry paste mixture to the open space. Stir the curry paste in the hot oil for about 1-2 minutes to release its flavors. Then, mix it with the vegetables.
- Add Coconut Milk and Broth:
- Pour in the coconut milk and vegetable broth. Stir to combine the ingredients.
- Season and Simmer:
- Add the soy sauce, brown sugar (or coconut sugar), curry powder, turmeric powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer.
- Simmer and Serve:
- Let the curry simmer for about 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the vegetables to become tender.
- Garnish and Serve:
- Once the vegetables are cooked to your desired level of tenderness, taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Serve the curry over cooked jasmine rice or rice noodles. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves and lime wedges.
