A Funky Friday Curry…

image

I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen again!..Today I bring to you a Funky Fiesta Friday curry and will be sharing it with you all as well as taking a massive saucepan over to Angie’s Fiesta Friday Party

I have never combined fresh leeks with these sweet looking baby button mushrooms but I knew the flavours would just fuse together.  The paneer adds a touch of luxury to the already lovely combination.  This curry was a hit in our family and I really hope you all enjoy it.

I have an original flatbread recipe coming up that will work wonders with this curry…til then have a gorgeous weekend and take care! Much love, D x

INGREDIENTS

250g grated paneer
2 leeks sliced finely
150g baby button mushrooms
2 cloves garlic minced

¼ tsp chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala/paneer masala

METHOD

● Heat the oil and butter in a medium saucepan on a low heat.  Throw in the mustard and cumin seeds, once they start to sizzle, add in the leeks and garlic.  Sauté for a few minutes until the leeks soften

● Season with the spices and salt.  Put in the mushrooms and combine ensuring the mushrooms are covered in the masala oil

● Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes.  The mushroom will release its own delicious juices, pour the passata in and stir.  Simmer on a low heat for a 8-10 minutes

● Scatter in the grated paneer. Pour a little water to keep moist and slowly mix so that all the paneer is covered in the tomato base

    • Happy friday to you too. Yes you’re absolutely right about the subtle taste of the leeks… Not as strong as onions and not an overwhelming flavour so worked out quite well. Hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend!
