Alkaline Diet Recipe #115: Broccoli, Carrots and Peas in Coconut Curry Sauce

I am sure to have mentioned this before, but I love Vegetable curries of all types, as they are healthy, mostly alkalising and very versatile too.

I have only discovered this curry a little while ago, but have already cooked it several times, as it is so easy to prepare and tastes delicious. The broccoli, carrots and peas together with the coconut milk and curry powder give this dish an abundance of flavours.

Apart from the great taste, the broccoli, peas and carrots are also very healthy and alkaline, as between them they contain high levels of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, antioxidants and minerals.

We hope you enjoy this tasty curry as much as we do and feel free to mix it up with other vegetables!

Broccoli, Carrots and Peas in Coconut Curry Sauce

Serves 4


500g broccoli
400g carrots
200g peas, fresh or frozen
2 medium sized onions
3 garlic cloves
200ml coconut milk (unsweetened)
200ml yeast-free vegetable stock
1 lemon (unwaxed)
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp curry powder
Optional: Himalayan crystal salt or celtic sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Heat 2 tbs of oil in a large frying pan. Gently fry the onion, garlic and curry powder and shortly roast.

Add the broccoli and carrots, season with a little bit of salt and briefly fry. Pour in the coconut milk and stock, season with 1/2 tsp grated lemon peel and cover the pan with a lid. Gently cook for about 12 minutes.

Season the curry with salt, pepper, 1 tbsp lemon juice and curry powder. Quickly bring back to boil and then serve.

    Hi. I have a schatzki ring and it’s very hard for me to eat most foods without severe reflux. I want to control this with diet and come off of medication. Do you have any tips? What’s the best way to test the alkalinity levels in your body?

    I have a question that you are cooking veges for 12 mins. Even thought i have rread that steaming over 4 mins make veges acidic.
    Also stir fry make them acidic too.

      Hey Fariha

      Absolutely not true. You don’t want to over cook things, but it definitely does not make vegetables acidic to steam for more than 4 minutes.

      I wish sites wouldn’t tell you things like this – they have people living in fear!

    I made this, this evening and, whilst have made other alkaline curries before, this was quick to prepare and delicious.
    I actually steamed my vegetables first, adding green beans as well as peas, carrots and broccoli, and then added them to the pan of onions, garlic, 2 tsps of garam marsala, 1 of turmeric, organic coconut milk (What on Earth seems the best) and vedge stock from my steamer pan. After heating it all together i wilted some spinach in at the end. The result was very yummy!
    Thank you Ross

    oops, sorry I must have forgotten the amount of curry powder.

    You use 2 teaspoons of the curry powder.

    In answer to the above, I’ll jump in – just add to taste and here’s a word of advice, ALWAYS use organic! The rest is of dubious content.

      Maria, Maria how dubious of you and how are organics really defined? In small villages around the world, they grow their crops, farm their land, and then travel to sell the excesses to markets. Sounds like a harsher life than I really have. I know that I could afford the organic lifestyle, which seems so hip though. Often times most products are not available, so conventional/ mainstream products are user friendly. Just so: never G MO….bio/G MO products[new raze].

    Giving the quantity of curry powder would have been helpful. Without that the recipe is useless.

    Hi Ross – being a British Asian I love my spices and don’t use curry powder but make my own mixes. My dear old mum is looking down from heaven and smiling approvingly at me for doing this:)

    Am I getting too geeky if I ask what particular spices would you suggest as the ‘curry powder’ element in this dish? – I love tumeric, cumin, paprika and coriander and try and grind my own dry fried seeds to make them as the taste is much superior than the jar versions.

    Hope my methods are ‘alkalising’

    curry? How much please? x

  15. Jo Reply

    This sounds absolutely delicious and I’d love to make it but … unless I’m completely missing something … I can’t see how much curry powder to add. I’m sure it’s a question of taste, but it’d be good to have a starting point! Thanks very much.
