Vegetarian Korma, Tonight’s dinner from the Capt.

Vegetarian Korma, a la Capt. Savage


1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion (brown or white), diced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root (I use the pre-prepared stuff)
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 potatoes, cubed
4 carrots, cubed
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced
3 tablespoons ground unsalted cashews
1 (400 gram) can tomato (crushed)
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
1 cup frozen green peas
1/2 green capsicum (bell pepper for you Yanks), chopped
1/2 red capsicum (ditto about, bell pepper), chopped
1 cup double cream (heavy) cream
1 bunch fresh coriander (yep you Americans call this cilantro) for garnish

Well that’s fine for ingredients, but how the heck do I make it?

Heat the oil in a frying pan (or wok, you know, what you throw at wabbits when you haven’t got a wifle) over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until tender. Mix in ginger and garlic, and continue cooking 1 minute. Mix potatoes, carrots, jalapeno, cashews, and tomato sauce. Season with salt and curry powder. Cook and stir 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

Stir peas, green and red capsicum (bell pepper), and cream into the frying pan/wok. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Garnish with coriander (cilantro) to serve.

And hey presto, what do you have?

Well, serve it with rice and maybe some Indian bread like naan, and you have a meal fit for a princess or a Rose.
This recipe was originally sourced from old family recipe, handed down from family member to family member… And if you believe that you’d believe anything, you could also get it at

    I’ve never been brave enough to try curry…but the photo looks delicious! So, you are kinda shy, a rocker, AND you can cook….pretty impressive!

      You are really easily impressed, where are the women like you in Australia… And yes the curry was good and enjoyed by my friend and her daughter, although it was harder to tell from the reaction the daughter. From my observation she must live by some strange type of osmosis, she certainly couldn’t survive on the amount of food she eats, CS

  3. And it was totally delicious, I can vouch! Also I noticed Ms M cleared her plate. I would have had loads more only I’m trying not to get any fatter. Yum yum!!

    • Capt. Savage says:

      Glad you like it Rose :), and that Miss M did too, recipe is there if you want to use it, but I know you won’t but maybe Mr F will give it ago, even though it doesn’t have any meat in it, CS
