Two-Day Curry could be #Vegan

This is chicken curry, but it doesn’t have to be chicken. It could totally be vegan.

I don’t often make a long and complicated recipe, but Oldest Grandson was coming for dinner and he requested curry, so I made this.

First, I made this Brown Curry Sauce. I make it pretty much the way the recipe goes, except I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, since I scored a bunch of great veg at the farmers market. I also put some garam masala powder in.

While that was going on, I sautéed some mushrooms, cauliflower, green peppers, tiny skinny green beans, and Amish chicken with vegan margarine (because I like it) and curry powder. I let all this sit in the fridge overnight.

The next day, I put it all together in my Instant Pot and let it simmer down and thicken. It looks like this:

Served it over Jasmine rice. It got high marks from my grandson.

I’m blogging at Fatal Foodies about some disappointing vegan “meat” we tried.

    I’d give you high marks for that, even without the chicken.

      Wow! I’m patting myself on the back now. Yeah, I have to admit, it was good, even the bites with no chicken in. 🙂

    Yum! I give you high marks too!

    I’ve got an Instant Pot snd some accessories in my shopping cart. I think it’s neat you can brown meat in it and slow cook.

      Ooo, what accessories have you chosen? I only have the rack that comes with it. I already have a metal steamer. And I love that saute function, too. Any device that removes a step where I have to pour a hot thing into another thing is good.

        Did you receive my reply about the accessories? I found a different brand of stackable pressure cooker pots at amazon by Maxrock. I’ve ordered everything now I just want it all to be here so I can cook something in it.
        I’ll be scouring recipes from now til then trying to decide what to make. I’d make your curry, but He-Man isn’t a fan of curry sadly. ?

        In case you’re wondering why replacement sealing rings? I’ll keep the original one for savory food, and the red replacement ring for sweets so they don’t have a smell or taste from the savory ring. I have heard that happens.

          Yes, I did! I bought some extra seal rings, too, but I’ve never made sweets in the pot, so I don’t know if I need them for that. I just got them in case the original ring ever goes bad.

          Charlie won’t eat curry, either. I only made it because Oldest Grandson requested it.

          Let me know how the accessories work out!

      I do love mine. Sometimes I wish I had bought a size larger, but my little one is plenty big enough for just Charlie and me.

      I’d rather go to a good restaurant for it than cook it, though. So much time! So many things!
