Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Place the potatoes and carrots in the boiling water, and cook until softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the peas and corn to the boiling water, and turn off the heat. Wait 1 minute, and drain the vegetables. Cover to keep warm.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until the onions are transparent, 5 to 7 minutes. Combine the tomatoes, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, and water with the onions. Stir in the turmeric, chili powder, cumin, coriander, and mustard seed until blended. Season with salt to taste. Add the potatoes, carrots, peas, and corn. Turn the heat to high, and cook the vegetables 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Lower the heat to medium, and cook another 7 minutes.

  • Pour the coconut milk into the vegetable mixture. Stir and cook for just 3 minutes to prevent the milk from curdling or separating. Remove from the heat and serve.

Definitely double the spices to get the best flavor also if you use an entire can of coconut milk just let it simmer longer to thicken it to the right consistantcy. Read More

I'm only giving this one three stars because it was okay (we ate it) but I won't be making it again. It was very bland with the just the amounts of spices indicated. I added lots more chili powder and some curry powder too. Also you need to serve this with rice or couscous and the recipe doesn't suggest it. Read More

This was an easy and delicious meal that the meateaters in my family enjoyed as well. As the recipe said the chilli powder was to taste I doubled it. The only reason it gets a 4 is because a full can of coconut milk made it a little sloppier than I would have liked but that's just personal taste I'll just reduce it slightly next time. I served this with basmati rice and Naan using a recipe from this site. Many Thanks. Read More

I used frozen mixed vegetables instead of corn and peas. I didn't use coconut milk or a sub but we enjoyed the flavor of the dish! Read More

I loved this recipe. I added a freshly juiced coconut for coconut cream (picked outside as I live in Hawaii) which was very tasty. I added frozen peas carrots and corn mix and substituted eggplant since I didn't have carrots which we all thought was very tasty. I tried it again 2 days later and used cauliflower which was also good and added lamb. Yum! Read More

I agree with some of the other reviewers who thought the amount of spices was insufficient. I almost doubled everything and still felt that there was something lacking. If I make this again I'll add cayenne for sure and maybe even some cinnimon. The coconut milk almost made me want to add something a little sweet. However I really liked the mix of veggies and beans and I thought they went together well. I'm always looking for new things to do with beans! Read More

I doubled the spices (added curry powder) and halved the coconut milk as some reviews said but it was still really flavorless. Granted I did not use salt at first and once I added some it was decent. Still it didn't have the rich interesting flavor I was hoping for. It was a healthy meal though so that was good. Read More

We drained 2 cans of mixed vegetables in place of the potatoes & other veggies since we had them available. Also my husband wanted to add beef so we added a pound of stew beef though It would have been just as good without it. Very hearty flavorful & delicious! Read More
