Warming Winter Curry

warm winter curry

One of my favourite food bloggers is Deliciously Ella. I like her recipes because she uses easy to find ingredients and the recipes aren’t complicated or time consuming.

It’s pretty darn cold right now in Toronto, Canada, so it’s always nice to have a warm, hearty and comforting meal. So, for tonight’s dinner I made Deliciously Ella’s Warming Winter Curry. It was so easy and quick to make and it is DELICIOUS!

The dish can be on it’s own or on top of rice.


  • 2 cans of full fat coconut milk
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes
  • approx. 18 small potatoes (just grab a bag of small potatoes)
  • 6 carrots
  • 2 small cans of cannellini beans (I used just one can)
  • 1 bag / box of spinach
  • 3 teaspoons of turmeric
  • 3 teaspoons of ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons of chilli flakes
  • sea salt and pepper


Slice the potatoes into quarters, then place them in a pot.  Cover them with water. Bring the pot to the boil. Once it’s boiling turn the heat down to a simmer and let the potatoes cook for about twenty minutes (until they’re soft enough to easily pierce with a fork).

While the potatoes cook, peel the carrots and slice them into thin pieces.

Drain the water from the potatoes and place them in a large pot with the coconut milk, tomatoes, carrots, turmeric, cumin, chili flakes, salt and pepper. Mix everything together and place the lid on the pot. Bring to a boil, then turn it down to a simmer and let it cook for about an hour.

If you’re eating rice with this, then put this on to cook now.

About fifteen minutes before the end, once the carrots are soft, stir in the rinsed and drained beans and the spinach. Then allow the curry to cook for another fifteen minutes or so.
