Tomato Coconut Curry

Hope you enjoyed Recipe #1 that was posted on Monday … continuing with our recipe a day theme this week, its a vegetarian Indian curry … not a lot of crazy spice flavours going on here, the coconut milk subdues it quite well and makes this curry really fragrant

I put this dish together a couple of weeks ago. It was an intensely crazy week, and I had to cook something for dinner. I scanned through the pantry, and quickly put a few ingredients together in my head and began to make this curry. This dish includes the basic ingredients that makes any Indian curry. It was great just as with some white rice… but I boiled a few eggs, and that made it complete!
