I adore a good curry meal – and my family does too. But I worked this one up as sort of a “spice-less” option.
Curry powder or paste isn’t always that spicy – depending on the brand and the amount that you use. This one is similar in nature – without the curry.
Perfect for anyone who just isn’t all that into curry.
This meal has a delightful combination of flavors, and it cooks quickly for a busy weeknight meal.
NOTE: If you are making this as a freezer meal, DO NOT add the coconut milk to the freezer meal bag – instead add it at the time of cooking for a perfectly creamy sauce.
