I had bought most of the ingredients over the weekend, but didn't get around to making curry until tonight. My inspiration came when I was in Krammerhuset, the homewares store, and I was perusing the spice rack. I bought a large packet of curry because its very versitile and I know I will be able to use it in so many different things (stir-fry, sauce, vegetable seasoning etc). Tonight I made a very simple, yet delicious curry dish. It was soo easy and very healthy !
I only used 4 ingredients in this meal - canned diced tomatoes, miniature organic potatos, chickpeas, and curry. I had some chickpeas in my refrigerator from earlier in the week when I made hummus. They don't really sell canned beans here, so when you want to cook with them, you must plan ahead and soak the dehydrated beans in water overnight.
I really didn't have to do much tonight to prepare it, pretty much just throw everything together. First I washed and boiled the potatos for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile I attempted to open the can of tomatos. This was probably the hardest part of the preparation because I realized we don't have a can opener - or at least I couldn't find it :P After a quick Google search lead me to try stabbing and cutting the can with a knife, I decided I should probably just bro up and go knock on my neighbors' door and ask to borrow theirs. A girl opened the door and was so nice and of course let me borrow it and even gave me a demonstration of how to use it. It is a much more simple tool here, but works just as well.
After finally opening the can, I dumped its whole contents into a frying pan, and added the chickpeas. Then I drained the potatos and quareted them and added them to the other ingredients. Then I dumped about 1 - 2 tablespoons of the curry ontop, stirred it all together, and let it cook for just a few more minutes.
It was so good and I felt really good about eating it because I knew it was very healthy. It was such huge portion, but 1/3 of it was only around 270 calories !
On that note, I will also announce that I joined FitnessWorld today - a gym with many locations all around Denmark, and so many centers in CPH. I was a memeber as a student and really liked going to classes, especially Thai-bo. This time I'm really looking forward to taking some yoga classes :)
