Ingredients

Instructions

  1. **Prepare Vegetables and Protein:** Dice the onion, carrot, and potato into small pieces. If using protein, cut it into bite-sized pieces.
  2. **Sauté Vegetables:** Heat oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, and potato, sautéing until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. **Cook Protein:** If using protein, add it to the pot and cook until lightly browned.
  4. **Add Water and Curry Roux:** Pour water into the pot, bringing it to a boil. Lower the heat, add the curry roux cube, and stir until fully dissolved. Simmer until the vegetables are tender and the sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes.
  5. **Season:** Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt if necessary.
  6. **Serve:** Place cooked rice in a bowl. Pour the curry over the rice, ensuring a generous amount of sauce and vegetables.

Note

  • Feel free to add more vegetables or proteins like chicken, beef, or tofu.
  • This recipe uses store-bought curry roux for simplicity. Look for it in Asian supermarkets.
  • For an authentic experience, pair it with pickled radishes or a simple side salad.
