Seitan Recipe Indian Style with Broccoli

What you need: 

1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
1 fresh green serrano chili, trimmed and chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
1 tablespoon garam masala powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 can light coconut milk
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons peanut butter or peanut sauce
1 medium carrot, peeled and cut into small chunks
8 ounces seitan, chopped into small pieces
2 cups broccoli florets, trimmed and cut into small pieces, including stalks
1 cup fresh tomato, cut into small chunks
1/4 cup whole salted peanuts
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, shredded
Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

What you do: 

1) Heat the oil in a large saucepan or wok on low heat. Add the onion, chili, and coriander seeds, saute for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and garam masala, saute for 2 minutes. Then add the peanut butter, tomato chunks, seitan, and turmeric powder, and saute for 2 minutes. Add the coconut milk and the water, saute for another 3 minutes.
2) Add the broccoli and carrot. Increase heat to medium and bring to a gentle boil for about 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce the heat once broccoli is tender but still has a bite. Add the peanuts to this Indian recipe and let it simmer for another 1 minute. Switch off the heat and add cilantro leaves.
Source of recipe: 1 - With this seitan recipe I combined my love for Indian curries with this great-tasting vegan protein bomb. This recipe is from my personal website.

This dish reminded me a bit of a yellow Thai curry. I liked the generous amounts of protein the dish had and the heat level was just about right for us. I doubled the amount of coriander and turmeric though to give it a stronger flavor.


Aww man that sounds good, its been a while since ive made indian food, it will have to wait till sunday though, because its gyro time~!! ;)b


I can't believe no one has commented on this one yet!
I added a bunch of other vegetables though, only added more flavour. :)
