Sweet & sour curry broccoli

In this pregnancy I’ve been craving international food and today it was Indian cuisine. I really wanted Indian spiced beets but it turned out my beets had gone bad so instead I made this broccoli dish which ended up very nice. With this we ate pan fried tofu dipped in a mix of flour, salt and turmeric as well as lemon & dill rice.

Sweet & sour curry broccoli
4 cups broccoli crowns
1 1/2 tbs canola oil
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 cup pineapple juice
1 tsp tamarind paste
2 tsp red curry paste
1 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs corn starch mixed with 1 tbs water
1/4 cup slivered and blanched almonds
Heat oil on medium heat in a pot and add spices and let them sizzle for 1 minute. Add pineapple juice, tamarind paste, red curry and sugar and blend well. Add broccoli, place a lit on and reduce heat to low and simmer until broccoli are soft. Add corn starch mix and blend well with sauce. Sprinkle almonds over and serve with rice etc.
