Vegetable Korma

in All Posts

Ever since we went to that Indian restaurant in Bath, England, I’ve been obsessed with the idea of Vegetable Korma.  Korma is a light, sweet curry sauce.  A very good curry for β€œbeginners!”  I just like the taste.  πŸ™‚

 

I found this jar of organic Korma at Earthfare when I was visiting my mom in Tennessee:

I combined two jars of the Korma with:

 

  • Slightly baked tofu, zucchini, and onion
  • Boiled and softened potato, celery, and carrots

 

And let everything simmer for another 20 minutes.

 

DIVINE!  I know it doesn’t look pretty but it sure tastes good! πŸ™‚

I had about 1 cup of brown rice on the side.

 

Also, earlier I had an Oh She Glows bar:

Hair pictures are forthcoming!  I didn’t do anything drastic, but I did get long, pretty layers and some side bangs put in.  I like it!

 

I’m going out tonight with Megan and Kelly.  I think we all need to cut loose a little… wine will be involved.  πŸ˜‰

 

See you in the morning.

    Vegetable Korma is my absolute favorite Indian dish! I’ve tried others but keep coming back to the korma. I started reading your blog about a month ago and I love it and everything you have to say about Fat Talk. Keep up the amazing work you do!

  • Megan @ Eat.Scrap.Run February 12, 2010, 8:05 pm

    What is your favorite Oh She Glows bar? I want to order some to try!

      The classic and the empower ones are great.

    Indian food never looks good but tastes amazing!

  • Kacy February 12, 2010, 8:10 pm

    Ooh that looks amazing! Yay, that’s what I tweet-suggested for your hair πŸ™‚ I bet it looks fabulous!

  • Jessica @ WHY DONTCHA RUN February 12, 2010, 8:12 pm

    I have got to try that sauce! Your description has peeked my interest. πŸ™‚ Have fun with the ladies tonight and enjoy that wine!

  • Allie (Live Laugh Eat) February 12, 2010, 8:31 pm

    You make me miss the Indian food I ate on BRICK LANE in London!!! Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!

  • Kt F @ ThroughTheFinish February 12, 2010, 8:35 pm

    Yummm that dish looks tasty. I’ve actually never had Indian food (and I can’t figure out why!), so I’m going to look around my stores for some of that vegetable korma! Thanks for the suggestion!

    • Caitlin February 13, 2010, 10:47 am

      mmm indian food is so good.

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) February 12, 2010, 8:36 pm

    Curry never looks good but always tastes divine.

    Can’t wait to see your pictures. Check out mine of my new cut tomorrow.

  • Lily @ Lily's Health Pad February 12, 2010, 8:37 pm

    I need to try this Korma. I love curry sauces! Can’t believe I’ve never heard of it before.

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg February 12, 2010, 8:39 pm

    Yum!!! I love jarred sauces that actually taste good– so easy!

    Can’t wait to see pics of the new haircut!

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) February 12, 2010, 8:40 pm

    Yum! I made a Thai tofu curry tonight with Trader Joe’s green curry sauce and it turned out awesome. Indian tomorrow night! πŸ˜€

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) February 12, 2010, 8:52 pm

    the korma absolutely looks good! hope you ladies have a great time tonight πŸ™‚

  • Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries February 12, 2010, 8:56 pm

    k i’m going for indian tomorrow.

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing February 12, 2010, 9:13 pm

    Have a great night! I’ve only had curry once and I was not a fan.. but maybe I should give Korma a try? It sounds good.

  • sarah February 12, 2010, 9:19 pm

    I love korma and I really miss indian food from home (england) I cant get it in the town I live in now. I also love chickpea curry, saagaloo (sometimes called saagwala) its a dish with spinach and is divine! Also if you like the korma you should try a pasanda (its very similar but has more of an almond flavour).

  • Lindsay Perrone (goodiesgalore) February 12, 2010, 9:26 pm

    Are you kidding? It’s looks amazing.

  • Danielle (Coffee Run) February 12, 2010, 9:26 pm

    I love using jarred sauces for meals- it makes cooking so easy πŸ™‚

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is February 12, 2010, 9:45 pm

    I can’t wait to see these hair pics. I change my hair all the time. Right after my wedding, I got 14 inches cut off!

  • Madeline - Greens and Jeans February 12, 2010, 9:58 pm

    I just cut 4 inches off of my hair! I have to agree with Evan, Indian food NEVER looks good but it always tastes fantastic!

  • Run Sarah February 12, 2010, 10:27 pm

    That looks amaazing! Indian food isnt the most photogenic but always is SO tasty.

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers February 12, 2010, 10:35 pm

    I’ve never heard of Korma- thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ Have fun with the wine tonight πŸ™‚

  • Tiffany @ A Dantat's Life February 12, 2010, 10:35 pm

    ooh i’ve never made my own indian food before, but that looks so good! great job! on recreating the dish!

  • Andrea (canyoustayfordinner.com) February 12, 2010, 10:39 pm

    oh yum! I saw that Korma sauce in the store recently and almost bought it, glad to hear it’s good! Have a great night!

  • Katy ( The Balanced Foodie ) February 12, 2010, 11:23 pm

    So fun! Enjoy a night out with the girls, love me some vino! πŸ™‚

  • Amber K @ sparkpeople February 12, 2010, 11:24 pm

    I don’t know if I have ever had curry. Spices are usually way too hot for me, so I tend to stay away from them. I might have to give it a try…it does look pretty interesting!

  • RhodeyGirl February 13, 2010, 12:01 am

    I’m happy I’m not the only one to buy random foods when away!!!!! Hope you’re having fun with the ladies!

  • Karla February 13, 2010, 12:31 am

    I looove Indian food! Korma sauce is tasty! I made my own palak paneer and channa masala from scratch not so long ago! Turned about great and not too difficult to make once you find all the ingredients!
    Have fun with the ladies! I had a fun night out with wine too πŸ™‚

  • Jamie February 13, 2010, 12:51 am

    i’m so intimated by trying to cook indian food – congrats on even making it to the “beginner” phase haha

    oh, and have fun tonight! I know you are a beer girl, but nothing says girls night out like wine!

  • Larabel February 13, 2010, 2:08 am

      those are good songs!!

  • Freya @ foodfitnessandfreya.wordpress.com February 13, 2010, 3:25 am

    Oohh the curry looks good!! I quite like curries now (they’re England’s 2nd most popular cuisine [ie Indian], after Chinese) πŸ™‚
    Can’t wait to see the hair!! I had mine cut not too long ago and got a fringe and HATED it, so I hope you like yours!
    Have fun out and about πŸ™‚

    • Laura February 13, 2010, 6:28 am

      I think Indians actually come out on top of Chinese for quite a few years now, apparently the English ‘invented’ the korma because we’re can’t quite handle the spiciness of the authentic curries… try brick lane in E london if you’re ever in that neck of the woods πŸ™‚

  • Taysan (The Irritable Eater) February 13, 2010, 3:57 am

    I love the Seeds of Change brand of sauces! I’ve been using them for dinner at least once a week recently.

  • Laura February 13, 2010, 6:25 am

    I’d second trying a passanda- you put ground almonds in the sauce πŸ˜‰ I love, love, love pashmiri naan breads that they have over here in the U.K.- they are bread pockets stuffed with coconut and raisins yum! Did you try cobra beer when you were in England? Girls night out, nothing like it to let off some steam! I can’t believe I’ve had the same hairstyle for 6 years- thats bad isn’t it?

    • Caitlin February 13, 2010, 10:50 am

      i love cobra πŸ™‚

      it’s not bad if its a good hairstyle!

    • Caitlin February 13, 2010, 10:51 am

      i love cobra πŸ™‚ we have it in america too!

      it’s not bad if its a good hairstyle!

  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) February 13, 2010, 8:23 am

    Indian style dishes are so yummy!! I’ve never seen that brand of sauces, but I’ll have to seek them out. πŸ˜€

  • Ryane February 13, 2010, 9:27 am
