Scrummy Pearl Barley Curry
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
1 1/2 Cup of Vegetable Stock
2 Potatoes, peeled and chopped
1/2 Cup mixed Green Peas
1/2 Cup Corn Kernels
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.
