READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by kittyroara

A great curry dish that you can make as hot or as mild as you like, and choose your favorite veggies for taste perfection! For a gluten-free version-ensure the curry powder and soy sauce used are both gluten-free

Holy cow this was great! I added 2 teaspoons of turmeric, a handful of fresh basil, and a tablespoon of red pepper flakes for some kick and it was delicious. Thanks for a new favorite!

Ingredients Nutrition

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan on medium-low heat.
