Scrummy Pearl Barley Curry

What you need: 

3/4 Cup Pearl Barley
1 level Tblsp Curry Paste (I like hot!)
1 Chopped Onion
2 Carrots, chopped
1 Clove of Garlic
1 Teaspoon of Coconut powder
Cornflour (approx. 1 heaped teaspoon) and Water mix, to thicken
Vegetable oil
1 1/2 Cup of Vegetable Stock
2 Potatoes, peeled and chopped
1/2 Cup mixed Green Peas
1/2 Cup Corn Kernels

What you do: 

Boil Pearl Barley for approx 35 minutes. Drain. While this is boiling, fry Onion and Garlic in Vegetable oil until tender.
Stir through curry paste and heat through (approx 1 minute). Stir in Vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Add chopped potato and carrot,and simmer until veggies are tender (approx 30 - 45 mins).
Add Peas and Corn, and stir in Pearl Barley. Heat through. Mix Cornflour, coconut powder and water to a watery paste and add to the curry. Stir until thickened.
Serve this on a bed of couscous or Rice, with pappodums. Very yummy! You can delete or add ingredients to suit.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I didn't like this. There wasn't enough flavor; maybe my curry paste isn't very strong, I don't know. I think it needs more curry paste/seasoning plus maybe some coconut milk, but that's what I'm used to for curries.

I loved this recipe.  Instead of pearled barley, I used hulled barley.  Also, I added a small tin of mushrooms.

UPDATE:  My 2 omni friends and their three kids LOVED this recipe - one of the boys said he could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!  The whole family are eating more vege meals of late so this recipe was a great incentive for them to keep doing so!  Well done for such a great recipe Gerri!!  :)>>>

Wow!  This was delicious!!  I used fresh corn cut from the cob (added it a little earlier to cook properly) and I added a vegan "chicken" stock cube in at the end... and wow - so tasty!! I really REALLY love this recipe!  Going to take to my omni friends house tonight for dinner, will come back and let you all know what they thought.
