Minced Pork & Vegetable Curry

お肉のストックが少なくなってきて、そろそろ買いに出なくてはいけないのですが、ポークのミンチが冷凍庫にまだ少しあるので、それを使うことに。我が家は夫もわたしもカレーが好きなのでカレーの登場率が高く、今日もカレーにしました。今日は日本のカレールーは使わずに、でも少しだけ小麦粉は加えました。適当にスパイスを加えてお野菜に火が通るまで煮込んだだけです。

The stock of meat is getting very low, we’ll have to go and do some shopping soon, but there was still some minced pork in the freezer so I decided that we would use  it tonight.  Both my husband and I love many forms of curry, so we tend to have curry often, and it was a curry that I decided to cook with the minced pork.  No Japanese curry roux used today, although I did use some flour.  All I did was put some spices and vegetables in with the pork and cooked until everything was cooked through.

玉ねぎのみじん切りをじっくり炒めたところにニンニクのみじん切りと生姜のみじん切り(少し大きめにして生姜の味が時々感じられるようにしました)を加えて炒め、スパイス(クミンシード、マドラスカレーパウダー、クミンパウダー、コリアンダーパウダー、フェネグリーク、カイエンヌペッパー、ブラックペッパー)を加えて更に炒めたところにポークのミンチを加え、色が変わったら缶トマトを少し加えて更に炒め、お野菜(玉ねぎ、にんじん、レンコン、イタリアのカボチャ、だめになりそうだったマッシュルーム)を加えて少し炒め、最後にヨーグルトを加えてお水と茅野屋の野菜ストック(袋を破って)とお塩を加え、沸騰したら弱火にして蓋をしてお野菜に火が通るまで煮込んで出来上がりです。ご飯は、十穀米を加えて炊いたもの。

I first sauteed minced onion slowly, then added minced garlic and ginger (I kept the ginger a little bigger so we can actually taste it now and again) and sauteed for a few more minutes, then added the spices (cumin seeds, Madras curry powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, fenugreek, cayenne pepper & black pepper), and sautéed for a few more minutes.  I then added the pork and when that looked cooked I added part of a tin of tomatoes, sauteed for a few more minutes, then added vegetables (onion, carrot, lotus root, Italian pumpkin, and some mushrooms that didn’t look to have much life left).  After mixing everything together, I added some yoghurt, mixed again, then water and vegetable stock powder, some salt, let it come to the boil then turned the heat down, put the lid on and cooked until the vegetables were cooked through.  I cooked rice with a couple of sachets of Japanese mixed grains.
