A low calorie curry. --- This recipe is adapted from a traditional Aloo (cauliflower) curry. I've done quite a bit of tweaking and experimenting to make it tasty without the oil / butter / nuts / etc that are normally in Indian curries. --- For anyone wishing to experiment further: - the small amount of oil is necessary to cook the spices (otherwise it just won't taste right). - the saute-ing and roasting adds a lot of extra flavour without any extra calories. - the tomato / onion / carrot paste adds thickness to the curry - the carrot adds sweetness - the stock & spices all add flavour without calories. Feel free to experiment with different spices. - the long simmering is important to add depth and subtlety to the flavour. - if the curry tastes bitter check: Did you burn any of the spices? (turmeric especially burns easily if you fried it, and the garam masala step can be quite tricky). Did you cut the ends & skin off the onion? Did the onion get sauted? - Add some honey to counteract any bitter taste.
