Tried a new curry recipe for dinner last night. It came out pretty good, a spicy zing lingers in your mouth, plus it is a good way to get in your veggies.
Green Pea Curry adapted from "Orange Page's Haru ni Oishii Kondate"
360g shelled peas
300g thinly sliced pork roast, sliced into 3-4cm long pieces
2 tablespoons oil
1 onion, cut into 2cm squares
1 carrot, peeled and sliced into 3-4cm long pieces, 1cm width.
1 red bell pepper, cleaned and sliced into 2 cm squares
10 okra, sliced
cooked rice (about 800g)
2 cups water
1 chicken bouillon
2 tablespoons shoyu (soy sauce)
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon salt
1. Shell peas and boil for about 2 minutes with a little salt. At the end of 2 minutes, turn off the heat and let cool in the salted water. Then drain.
2. In a frying pan, add the oil and cook the onions until transparent. Add the pork and cook until it changes color. Add the carrots & red bell pepper. When everything is coated with the oil, add the ingredients for the soup. Simmer for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add in the green peas and okra and cook for another minute or two. Serve with rice.
NOTES: when I tasted this it was a bit salty, so I added a little more water.
