This family recipe from Dr. Yum Project founding board member Santhi Nair is a favorite amongst our team.
For those who are new to cooking with fresh curry leaves, they can be found at Indian grocery stores. You can also try growing a curry plant at home so you always have some on hand! The curry leaves add lots of great flavor to this dish, but if you aren't able to find them, don't let it stop you from trying this recipe! It's still super tasty without them.
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled in a large pot to feed a crowd, or as a great Cook Once, Eat Twice meal.
Some of us like to make this curry on the stovetop and others prefer to make in an Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker, so we've included directions for both.
