When you're in a {c}urry…


Happens every time I pass by the falafel cart outside the movie theatre: the most exotically fragrant smell of cumin, turmeric, cardamon, and red pepper hangs in the air; and I'm determined to rush home to cook up a curry with everything and anything that happens to be in the fridge.

That's exactly what I did yesterday; and I did it with just 5 ingredients, in 7 minutes-max from start to finish.

Here's how:

1.  Cranked up the heat under a cast iron skillet.

2.  Heated olive oil and some sweet red onion, chopped, with a sprinkling of curry powder till the onion began to wilt and the seasoning came alive, fully infusing the oil.

3.  Then stirred in some chickpeas (pre-cooked).

4.  Next a portion of sweet green peas straight from the freezer.

5.  Continued cooking about a minute or so longer till the peas were bright green and the chickpeas were heated through.

6.  Spooned the curry into my favorite bowl and indulged my senses!

I don't know what it is about these spices…. But I know they're full of antioxidants and health-imbuing properties. And it all comes together so quickly.
