This is going to be a quick recipe post this week as lots of you have asked for it after seeing the photo on Instagram.
This dish was inspired by a halloumi curry I had the joy of eating at Elderflower Fields festival last month. I couldn’t find a recipe that matched it so I thought I’d mess around and make my own.
This is such a quick and easy meal to make, and I do cheat by using a ready made sauce.
Halloumi and Chickpea Curry
The Spice Tailor Keralan Coconut Curry kit (or any sauce to your taste/preference)
A block of halloumi cheese, cut into squares
Small tin of chickpeas
Boiled new potatoes
Mixed chopped peppers
Sunflower or olive oil
In coconut curry kit, there is a small pouch of spices. Start by adding those to some oil in a frying pan. Once the oil has heated up, add the chunks of halloumi, sprinkle with cumin, and fry each side until golden brown.
In a saucepan, heat up some oil. Add the mixed peppers and cook for about 5 minutes. Then add the halloumi from the frying pan. After this, add the coconut curry sauce and a cup of water (the instructions say how much water is needed but I found it better to add more). Stir this all together.
Add the chickpeas, potatoes and spinach and cook for about 20 – 25 minutes on a low heat. This ensures that the halloumi gets infused by the flavour of the curry.
Serve with rice or on its own.
As mentioned above, you don’t have to use the same ingredients. This was just my personal preference. This is a great, hearty vegetarian meal that keeps you full and is incredibly tasty and quick to make!
Next week I will be doing a post on exercise and some more smoothie ideas for you!
How have you been getting on with the health kick? Do you have any suggestions for me to try out?
Peace and love…
