Bombay Curry Bowl


Bombay Curry Bowl


You all know the scenario. It’s late, you’re starving and in desperate need of a quick and easy meal. We have all been there. No one has time to spend hours in the kitchen on the average weekday evening. 20-30 minutes – sure – but any longer can easily start pushing it.

If you are familiar with this scenario (which I know you are), you are also aware that your options can be pretty limited if you’re trying to stay on the healthy track. Sure, you can always resort to a quick and easy salad, but sometimes you need something that feels a little more hearty and adventurous.

If this sounds like you, look no further. While this Bombay Curry Bowl isn’t entirely from scratch, it takes under 30 minutes from start to finish and is absolutely delicious. The vibrant blend of broccoli, red and yellow pepper, sweet onion, chickpeas and scallions are pairing perfection, while the store-bought curry sauce brings this dish to life.

Once chickpeas are lightly golden, add in your store-bought curry sauce of choice. I purchased this Maya Kaimal Jalfrezi Curry Indian Simmer Sauce. It is gluten free, vegan and has just the right amount of heat.

I used the full jar (12.5 oz) for this recipe, and it seemed to be just the right amount..

Simmer mixture on low for about 5 minutes, or until sauce is heated through. When ready, serve over brown rice. I used the microwavable packages of organic brown rice from Trader Joe’s. 3 bags come to a box, and 1 bag has about 2 cups of rice. It takes 3 minutes and 30 seconds in the microwave and serves 1-2 depending on how hungry you are.
