Lunch at Home! Summer Vegetable Curry

By adding a little twist, you can turn your regular curry dish into a fancy lunch.

Ingredients: 5 servings = 505 kcal per serving

Ground pork
150 g
Kabocha squash
1/4
Zucchini
1
Paprika
1/2
Okra
8
Onion
1/2
Potato
1
Instant curry roux
1/2 box (5 servings)
Water
650 ml
Bay leaf
1
Oyster sauce
1/2 tablespoon
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
Plain cooked rice
5 bowls' worth

Steps

1. Slice the kabocha squash and zucchini into 8 mm sections, and cut the paprika into 2 cm strips. Cut half the amount of kabocha pieces into small bite-sized pieces.
2. Parboil the okra in salt water, and chill in ice water. (To make them bright green.)
3. Cut the onions into wedges, slice the potatoes into 8 mm half moons, and 4 of the okra into halves.
4. Heat olive oil in a pot, fry the ground beef, then add vegetables (omitting some for garnishing) and continue to fry.
5. Add water, the halved okra pieces, and simmer until tender.
6. Remove from heat and dissolve roux blocks. Return to heat and simmer briefly, add oyster sauce, then it's ready!
7. Wrap the vegetables for garnishing in saran wrap and precook in the microwave at 600 W for 1 and 1/2 minutes, then fry in the pan to brown both sides on low heat. (No need to precook the okra in the microwave.)
8. Transfer to serving dishes, and bon appetit!
