The Summery Sabzi Shakh
In the summer months, rich, heavy foods are not on the mind; we instead turn to lighter, fresh meals to satisfy our palate. Our Sabzi Shakh is a lightly spiced dish with herby undertones, which makes for a great summer dish. It is designed for use with vegetables, but of course the joy of our Curry Packs is that you can use whatever you like! The Sabzi Shakh will work just as well with chicken or fish.
When using vegetables, we advise making the sauce the night before you want to eat the curry, then adding the vegetables when re-heating the sauce. This provides time for the curry to develop flavour, whilst not over-cooking the vegetables. Use just a small selection of vegetables so as not to over-crowd the dish with too many different flavours. Try it with cauliflower and green beans, or chickpeas, spinach and aubergine.
As an alternative, try our variation of this curry pack, the Sabzi Shakh with yoghurt. The light flavours of the Sabzi Shakh remain, whilst the addition of yoghurt provides a pleasing, fresh tang and changes the consistency of the curry dramatically. The result is a thinner, silky sauce which is ideal for vegetables like courgette, peas and beans.
