Popeye Curry: Easy and Delicious!

Popeye Curry: Easy and Delicious!

A curry with lots of spinach. It doesn't need to be simmered, so it's ready in minutes. I used curry roux.

Ingredients: 5 servings

Spinach
1 bunch
Onion
1 small
Bacon
10 half-slices (5 slices cut in half)
Canned corn
80 g
Curry roux
4 pieces from a block (as indicated on the box)
Water
about 750 ml
Plain white rice...as much as you like

Steps

1. Blanch the spinach, drain and refresh in cold water, squeeze out and cut into 3 cm pieces. Slice the onion thinly, and cut the bacon into 2 cm pieces.
2. Heat up a pan and add 1 tablespoon of oil (not listed). Saute the onion very well. Add the bacon and saute briefly. Add the water.
3. When the water comes to a boil, simmer briefly. Turn off the heat and dissolve the curry roux. Bring up to a boil. Adjust the thickness of the sauce with water if needed.
4. Add the spinach and corn, heat through and it's done. Serve!

Story Behind this Recipe

I used to make this curry a lot when I was in high school. I made it using lots of the spinach my grandfather grew. My family all loved it, especially grandpa. It's a curry that brings up lots of happy memories for me.
