January invites slow-cooking and one-pot meals. After the fancy food and hoopla of the holidays, the first month of the new year welcomes comforting meals without any bling or pretension. This curry is a perfect example. Brimming with vegetables and infused with coconut, this rich and aromatic stew is healthy and bright. Its spice and heat is guaranteed to warm a crowd, while jump-starting any dormant taste buds suffering the winter doldrums.
This easy curry is also a one-pot wonder, simply prepared in 30 minutes, and tastes great with basmati rice. It’s perfect for a weeknight meal or no-fuss weekend dinner. Feel free to switch up the vegetables to your taste. Chicken thighs may also be used in place of the breast meat — just adjust the cooking time accordingly.
