Preparation

1

Prepare the vegetables: Wash and clean all produce. Dice the onion, mince the garlic and fresh ginger. Peel and dice the potato in 1-2 cm dice. Cut the cauliflower in about 2 to 3 cm florets. Gluten friendly: Use rice instead of naan bread. In the sink, place the brown rice in a strainer and rinse it well.  In a pot, add the brown rice, water (1 1/3 cup, 2 2/3 cup, 4 cup), salt (1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp) and stir. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce the heat to medium/low, cover and cook 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove the pot from the heat and set aside.

2

Cook the onion: Heat the oil (1/2 tbsp, 1 tbsp, 1 1/2 tbs) in a medium pot. Add the onion and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes until the onion is tender.

3

Roast the spices: Add the Indian spice blend, the salt (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp), pepper (1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp), minced garlic and grated or minced ginger. Cook for an additional minute.

4

Add the vegetables:  Add cauliflower, potato, coconut milk and water  (1 1/4 cup, 2 1/2 cup, 3 3/4 cup) to the onion and spices. Bring to a boil. Cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400F. Note: The coconut milk will separate and solidify in the fridge. When heated it will become nice and creamy.

5

Finish the curry & heat the naan bread: When the coconut curry has about 5 minutes left to simmer, heat the naan bread in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Combine the cornstarch with water  (3 tbsp, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup) in a small bowl and add to the coconut curry. Stir for about 1 minute to thicken the sauce. With a potato masher or a fork, mash some of the curry to give it a creamier texture.

6

Garnish & Serve: Cut the coriander in about 2 cm pieces. Serve the coconut curry in individual bowls with warm naan bread. Garnish the coconut curry with coriander. Serve.

ONION
Onions are high in the flavonoid quercetin, which has been found to improve allergy symptoms and reduce cancer risk. The sulfur compounds help lower blood pressure and prevent platelets from sticking together (which can reduce ones risk of a heart attack or stroke).
