Vegan banana carrot curry with almond rice

I'm a huge fan of the Indian cuisine and it was just a matter of time until the first curry would show up on here (certainly not the last).
This curry is a mild one and perfect for all the not-so-spicy eaters and kids. This dish is super easy and finished under 30min and therefore perfect for weeknights.
On top if that, it's also low fat, vegan, gluten-free and delicious ^^.

course country time difficulty
main course India 25min easy

Serves 2

imperial metric
1 cup 200g basmati rice
1/2 tsp salt
2oz 60g slivered almonds
2 tsp oil, butter, or ghee
6 tsp curry powder
pinch chili powder
14oz 400ml canned coconut milk
3 tbsp 45ml lime juice
2 bananas
2oz 60g raisins
pinch salt

  • put the rice in a sieve and clean under running cold water
  • put in a pot with twice as much water (therefore 2cups) and a pinch of salt
  • turn the heat on max and wait until the water boils
  • then, turn the heat on low and put the lid on
  • leave for about 20min

  • in the meantime, put the slivered almonds in a pan and brown without oil, then put them aside
  • wash the carrots (peel them if you want) and use a peeler to cut them into carrot "tagliatelle"
  • heat some oil or butter in a medium pot and stir-fry the curry and chili on medium heat
  • put in the coconut milk and the lime juice
  • throw in the carrot noodles, stir and cook (still on medium heat)
  • mash one bananas and cut the other one in slices
  • when the carrots are nearly done (to your desired tenderness), throw in the mashed banana and the raisins
  • if the consistence is still to runny for your taste, mix 1 tsp starch with a bit of cold water in a small container, add it to the curry and bring to boil (there's also gluten-free starch, if you're sensible to gluten)
  • add the banana slices to the curry and taste if more salt or chili is needed
  • if the rice is done, add slivered almonds and mix

Serve curry and rice with with a bit of fresh mint.
