Is it summer soon?

Seriously, I'm sick and tired of freezing. And it has rained far too much for my taste. It's mid-March; normally I'd be merrily enjoying the first rays of sun, turning the sausages on my BBQ. No such luck this year. Instead I'm sitting here in my very cold flat, wrapped up in several layers, despite having the heating on, enjoying a home made curry.

Vegetable curry mit Lemon Rice:

Green beans
Onions (banana or shalotte)
Butternut squash
Chick peas
tin of chopped tomatoes

Red Chili
Mustard seeds
Cardamom pods (whole and only a few)
Coriander seeds (ground)
Cumin seeds
Garam Masala
Paprika powder
Curry Powder
Ginger (finely grated)
salt to taste
Stalks of coriander leaves
curry leaves (3 to 4)

Throw spices in hot oil, stir for a minute, add the tin of chopped tomatoes, stir well and add chopped vegetables. Add roughly chopped coriander leaves at the end.

Cook basmati rice
one dry red chili
Mustard seeds
Cardamom pods
finely chopped onions
salt to taste
lemon juice to taste
finely grated ginger
curry leaves (2)

drain rice and let it sit in the colander while preparing the rest.

heat two to three table spoons of olive oil, add spices, add lemon juice, stir in rice, chopped coriander leaves.
Serve and enjoy. :-)
