Cook Time



For the Curry:

  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/4 cup, plus 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup, plus 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable broth
  • 1 cup of cooked chickpeas
  • 1 precooked corn on the cob, sliced into approximately 1-inch slices
  • 1 zucchini, cut into slices
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • A few mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • Salt, pepper, chili pepper, and fresh cilantro, to taste

For the Rice:

  • 1 cup brown basmati rice
  • 2 1/2 cups of water
  • 3 cloves
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 cardamom pods
  • 3-4 black peppercorns
  • Saffron, if desired

  1. Rinse the rice well. Bring the water to the boil, add the rice and the spices, and let it simmer on a low heat for about 15-20 minutes until the rice is soft. Leave for 5 minutes. Drain excess water.
  2. Place a pot of coconut oil and fry the onion in a non-stick pan. Add the curry powder and cumin, roast for a few minutes, then pour in coconut milk and the stock.
  3. Add the vegetables and the chickpeas and simmer until tender-firm. Season and serve with the rice and fresh coriander.
