Healthy 20-minute Indian Curry with SunRice

SunRice Healthy 20 minute Curry Recipe

By now, you might have realised that I adore a quick healthy curry recipe.

That’s because a quick, healthy curry recipe is my go-to healthy comfort food because it’s so ridiculously convenient and easy to make - plus it’s affordable.

Let’s be real.

When you come home after a long day, it’s tempting to dial in for your dinner from a takeaway joint.

This healthy 20-minute curry with basmati rice will be ready to eat long before Todd the delivery guy even has time to put on his helmet.

Save this recipe and you’ll save Todd the trip and money on takeaway meals.

This easy, peasy recipe is sensational (am I allowed to say that about my own recipes?) because it’s flavour and nutrient-rich.

And while I typically go for brown rice with quinoa, low GI rice or my favourite SunRice Supergrains, there isn’t a better pairing for an Indian curry than fluffy basmati rice (in my humble opinion).

Of course, I used SunRice Basmati rice because SunRice is my go-to choice and a Aussie company I’m proud to work with. (More on how SunRice and I know each at the bottom…!)

BTW - This healthy 20-minute curry recipe is also great for meal prep.

You can freeze it but I tend to eat it too quickly to fuss with that! Of course, play around with the vegetables you use to help you get through what’s in your fridge.

Alright, that’s enough curry chat for now!

Go ahead - dive into this delicious recipe and please enjoy it’s simplicity and flavour.

Big love,
