Pea and Carrot Coconut Curry

Pea and Carrot Coconut Curry

This is a variation of a Sri Lankan curry dish, typically made with lots of different spices and jasmine rice. We substituted curry powder and quicker-cooking basmati rice with just as satisfying results.

  • Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 none small onion, chopped
  • 1 none to 2 tbsp. Madras curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 none serrano chile, chopped
  • 1 none bag (1 lb.) baby carrots, halved lengthwise
  • 1 none can (14.5 oz.) coconut milk
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


Cook rice according to package directions. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook onion, curry powder, salt, and chile until onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add carrots, coconut milk, peas, and 1/2 cup water. Simmer, covered, until carrots are tender, about 8 minutes. Serve over rice and sprinkle with cilantro.
