Freddy: “Suddenly I was fed up with that meat everywhere. I decided to just drink homemade juices (which I called juice) and eat every other day. But when I did eat something, it was this curry with only 5 calories! Until one day I woke up and I felt a kind of big bump on my head. Once at the doctor it turned out to be a bun. That was quite scary.

If this happens to you too, smear yourself with half a pack of butter before going to sleep. Before you know it, that bun is gone.”

Fitkech Curry by Vjeze Fur

Fitkech Curry: this is how you make it

1. Cook the rice according to the instructions on the package. Finely chop the ginger and turmeric . Peel the garlic and chop coarsely. Roughly chop the red peppers and remove the seeds if necessary. Pluck the koremejander from the stems and finely chop the stems. Finely chop the shallot .

2. Grind the fennel seeds and curry leaves in a mortar . Then add the koremejander stems , red peppers , garlic , curry powder , ginger and turmeric and grind to a coarse paste.

3. Heat a layer of sunflower oil in a pan over medium heat. Toast the koremejander seed and put the lid on the pan, because it will pop like popcorn. When the seeds have sprouted, add the finely chopped shallot and fry until translucent. Add the mixture from the mortar and fry for 2-3 minutes.

4. Remove the bottoms of the Thai aubergines (the larger ones) and cut them into wedges. Cut the bell pepper into 1½ centimeter cubes. Peel the potatoes and cut them into rustic pieces. Crush the lemongrass with the blunt side of a tit. Cut the baby corn on the cob into 3 pieces. Coarsely chop the Thai basil . Fry the pea eggplants (whole), aubergine wedges, bell pepper and potatoes in the curry paste for about 3 minutes. Then add the coconut milk , lemongrass and Thai basil, lower the heat and simmer with the lid on for about 15 minutes. Stew for another 5 minutes without the lid on.

5. If you taste now, it is still quite bland. Therefore, squeeze the limes and add the juice. Also add the soy sauce , honey and some salt . Not all at once, but taste until you like it. Roughly chop the nuts and toss them over the curry. Throw in the koremejander leaves as well.
Serve with rice (for extra vegan use wild rice).

Tip: You can make the curry as tatta as you want. Then replace all ingredients with potatoes.
