This yellow curry sauce is one of our favorites. It's so easy (basically a southern style gravy with curry powder added in); it's picky-eater friendly because everyone gets to choose their own toppings; and it has sentimental value for us because we served it at our wedding reception.
It's not super spicy with a perfect bit of sweetness from coconut milk or vanilla milk alternative. Did I mention it's so easy and delicious? Because it is.
Vegan Yellow Curry Sauceserves 2-3 people; easily multiplies for larger groups
1 cup uncooked rice
2 TBSP butter or alternative
2 TBSP flour
1/2 tsp. curry powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 c. milk or alternative (vanilla or coconut is so good)
How to Make Yellow Curry
1 | Start rice cooking according to package directions. 1 cup of rice per recipe serves 2-3 people. We double this for our little family of four.
2 | Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. While it melts, measure out flour and seasonings into a small bowl. Add to melted butter, whisk together and let cook for a minute until smooth and bubbly.
3 | Slowly add milk and whisk together assuring their are no lumps. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat and allow to thicken stirring occasionally to keep from burning or solidifying on top layer.
4 | To serve, scoop select toppings on rice (see ideas below), then pour curry sauce over and enjoy.
pickles or relish
Build Your Own for Groups
This is a meal that works so well for groups. We make multiple cups of rice (even borrow a rice cooker or two to accommodate large groups like at our wedding). The curry is made in a large pot (but will take longer to cook and thicken). Then toppings are laid out in bowls with spoons for people to add their own. Definitely a crowd-pleaser.
