Simple Vegetable Curry



Recipe Information

Total Time: 

25 minutes



Get dinner on the table in a hurry. This fragrant, flavorful Indian curry takes just 25 minutes to make.


  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 4 teaspoons curry powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large red or green jalapeno, slivered
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups green beans, trimmed and cut into one-inch pieces
  • 1 pound cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


Combine the coconut milk with the curry powder and salt in a large saute pan, and stir to mix. Over medium-high heat, bring mixture to a boil and add the jalapeno, onion, green beans and cauliflower. Stir, then cover the pan and return to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes. Uncover and test the vegetables for doneness; they should be very tender when pierced with a paring knife. Stir in the lemon juice and taste for salt. If desired, simmer longer to thicken the sauce. 

Serving Suggestion

Coconut milk is a fantastic simmer sauce—sturdy enough to boil and full of sweet, coconut flavor. Keep a few cans in the pantry and you can always make a delicious, creamy curry dinner in just a few minutes. Add cooked brown or jasmine rice from the co-ops’ deli and you’re done!
