I made this from fresh vegetables bought at the farmers market and it makes all the difference. The freshly shelled peas are bursting with flavor as is the broccoli. It makes a spectacular summer dish served with white rice and a lime wedge.
English peas, shelled fresh
2 tblsp olive oil
1/2 yellow onion thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 fresh green pepper ( jalepeno type), finely chopped
1 tblsp curry powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tsp freshly grated lime peel
1/2 can coconut milk ( I normally use ‘lite’)
Heat olive oil in large skillet. Saute onions till slightly clear then add garlic and finely chopped fresh green pepper. Stir until everything is covered in oil and add curry powder, salt, and red pepper flakes. Stir till everything is well blended. Stir in vegetables till they are well coated with spices add lime juice and lime zest and cover with lid and let simmer for several minutes. Then add coconut milk and cook on med/low flame until vegetables are tender. Serve with white rice.
