Nepalese Tarkari Curry

This is one of the easiest curries I have ever made! It basically makes itself to be honest, all you need is the vegetables and the casserole!

Ajwain seeds are these amazingly fragrant seeds that make your nose smile! Honestly, I was first introduced to them when I was working for a brief time in an Indian kitchen, and I remember me and my colleagues would smell them and just be in awe at the amazing scent!

Nepalese Tarkari Curry
(Serves 2-3)

Doesn't photograph well, but tastes delicious!

2 tbsp oil
1 white onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2cm piece of ginger, peeled and grated
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 turmeric
1/2 ajwain seeds
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
3 cups chopped vegetables (potatoes, courgettes, carrots, peas, cauliflower) diced
Salt to taste
Fresh coriander to garnish

Rice and naan to serve

- In a large pot, heat the oil on medium heat and soften the onion for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and fry for a couple of minutes until fragrant. Add the spices - cook fora minute to release flavour.

- Cook the rice as instructed on the packaging.

- Add the vegetables, tomatoes, splash of water along with salt and stir until combines well. Cover and cook on low heat for about 30 minutes,stir occasionally, add a little more water if it looks a bit dry.

- Serve along with rice and naan, topped with fresh coriander!

I also thought I would include some pictures of Glasgow when it was sunny the other day, as these days seem few and far between. But on those occasions when you can spot the sky... it is so worth it!

The river Kelvin running through the Kelvin walk that is connected to the Botanic Garden - stunning! I love that little waterfall, and sometimes you can see a heron sitting on the other side of it.

The Kelvingrove Art Galleries - and look at that sky! This building is beautifully lit up at night all year'round as well *smiles*

I keep saying this is my favourite view in Glasgow... I think it is!

Architecture! I thought it was nifty how that upper part actually has a space and isn't a window like the one below....

  1. For en koselig by du bor i altså!!! Og denne retten høres deilig ut. Akkurat slike retter jeg liker når jeg vil ha varm mat. Enkle grønnsaker med godt krydder. Nam!

    1. Ja, når været er fint er Glasgow enda bedre! Er en storby som føles som en liten landsby da så mange kjenner hverandre - det liker jeg!
      Curry/karri er ikke så veldig fotogen,men så godt det er da! Også er det lett, ofte er varmmat litt for tung, men dette er supert :D Håper du har hatt en god start på uken Ragnhild :) x
