How to make a Coconut Cream Pineapple Curry

You will ask how to make a curry? It’s easy let’s do it together now. I will show you how to make the basic version and how to make a more fancier version.

Simple as that: Start with a casserole dish. Use a bit coconut oil or vegetable broth for oil free cooking.

Add onions and garlic, fry them for around 3 minutes until lightly golden.

Then add coconut milk and spices. Cook for around 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes, add pineapple chunks to that casserole and cook for 7 minutes longer.

If you want to make the curry with the optional add ons, like carrots, bell pepper, lime juice, or edamame, add them with the coconut milk. The cooking step then will take a bit longer, more like 15 minutes.

Divide into plates, serve alone or with some bread or quinoa as well.

It’s pretty easy to make. You only need the curry spice mix which I made for this curry recipe. You can use of course a pre-packed curry mix, but I find my own one has just the right amount of flavor and spice.

Plus it’s all natural, preservative free, and done in no time.

It makes an amazing dinner, lunch. It’s also great for festive gatherings, potlucks, or movie nights.

Believe me, there isn’t anything more comforting watching a great movie with a warming bowl of this curry in your hands. It’s absolutely delicious plain, but you can serve it with rice, quinoa, bread, potatoes, and I guess pasta would be delicious as well.

This is an absolutely to go curry recipe for you. You can try the basic version first and next you can choose 2 more things from the optional add ons. Then you try more or go for all.

There is so much fun in the kitchen, while it’s simmering it will smell incredible.

So your kitchen will smell every time absolutely amazing.

Is the ginger fresh? Or did you use ground ginger?

When you say 'curry powder'..do you mean madras, korma??..or just a mild curry powder..

Florian

Hi Lynne! Just a regular mild curry powder will do the trick, but feel free to use whatever you like. Hope that helps.
