2 garlic cloves, squeezed or chopped
1 red chili, dig thin strips 2 inches long
1 yellow, orange or green bell pepper, thinly sliced 2 inches long
3 carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally into ¼ inch thick circles (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste *
1 can (14 ounces) regular coconut milk **
½ glass of water
1 ½ cup thinly sliced kale (tough ribs removed first), preferably Tuscan / Lacinato / Dinosaur type
1 ½ teaspoon coconut or turbinado sugar (raw) or sugar
1 tablespoon tamari or soy ***
2 teaspoons rice vinegar or fresh juice
Topping / Side: few fresh basil or chopped cilantro, optional red chili flakes, optional sriracha or chili aioli
1.To cook rice, bring an outsized pot of water to a boil. Add the rinsed rice and still simmer for half-hour , lowering the warmth if necessary in order that it doesn't overflow. Remove from heat, drain the rice and return the rice to the pan. Cover and let the rice sit for 10 minutes approximately , until you're able to serve. Before serving, season the rice to taste with salt and mash with a fork.
2.To make curry, heat an outsized skillet inside over medium heat. When hot, add oil. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ginger and garlic, cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
3.Add peppers and carrots. Cook until the peppers are tender with a fork, another 3 to five minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the curry paste and cook, stirring, for two minutes.
4.Add coconut milk, water, kale and sugar, mix well. Bring the mixture to a overboil medium heat. Reduce the warmth as required to take care of a coffee heat, and cook until the peppers, carrots, and kale are softened to your liking, about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5.Remove the pan from the warmth and season with tamari and rice vinegar. Add salt (I add ¼ teaspoon for optimal taste), to taste. If the curry needs a touch more stickiness, add 1/2 teaspoon tamari, or to form it more acidic, add 1/2 teaspoon rice vinegar. Divide the rice and curry between bowls and garnish with chopped cilantro and a touch red chili flakes, if desired. If you wish spicy curry, serve it with condiment or sriracha as a entremots .
