Vegetable Yellow Curry
Vegetable Yellow Curry
I love curries. All sorts of them: veg and non-veg, spicy or mild. They are full of color and flavor; are easy to make and taste great.
This spicy vegan curry made with three ingredients only: mixed vegetables of your choice, yellow curry paste and coconut milk. Serve it with plain basmati or jasmine rice for a delicious, healthy, and nutritious backpacking dinner.

Cook the rice according to package instructions.
Drain and cool slightly.
Spread rice, vegetables and curry paste on separate dehydrator trays, covered with non-stick sheets or parchment paper.
Dry at 135F/57C 4-8 hours.
Put the dried meal into a zip-lock bag. Add coconut milk powder and seal.
on the trail:
Pour vegetable curry mixture into the pot; add 2 cups water.
Place pot over medium heat and bring to a boil.
Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat, cover, and let stand another 5-10 minutes to rehydrate meal completely.
Hi! I’m giving this recipe a shot for this upcoming weekend and am bulk drying all the ingredients so I can have a couple meals. The quantities listed above I assume are for pre-dehydrated amounts. What would be the equivalent of each once it is dehydrated? I’m guessing the rice will be about the same & I’ll just weigh it. But how about the veggies?
Hi Brian! You can see examples of meals from dehydrated ingredients in our recipe database. My portion usually is a 1-cup size. It consists 1/4 cup dehydrated rice, 1/4 cup dehydrated meat or fish, and another 1/2 cup – vegetables, coconut milk or tomato sauce powder, spices. You can mix up ingredients in any proportions you want.
Can I cook the meal at home, then dehydrate the finished meal? I’d break it up into pieces and put into a bag.
Sure! But do not add coconut milk while cooking. Itherwise it will go rancid soon. Better to cook with water, dehydrate, and then add coconut milk powder
Would I have to put it in a pot to boil or could I get away with pouring boiling water in to my cup of food and letting it sit?
Hi Christen! Both methods are good.
So easy and so good. Used curry powder 1.5 tsp and worked very well. Thanks very much, the recipes on this site are great.
Does curry paste dry to a powder? I’m just wondering if the fat in it will go rancid? Can you use a curry POWDER instead? and if so, how much?
Hi Melissa! I’m drying curry paste to a bark, then grind it into a powder. Just try to use curry paste with minimum fat content, or make your own from fresh ingredients. You can also use curry powder instead. 1 teaspoon will be enough for this recipe.
awesome! thank you. I will give it a try.
Great inspiring recepies!! Thank you ??
Thank you, Louise!
Hey! Thank you so much for this site, it’s awesome. What kind of frozen veggies did you use?
Hi, Ellen! Thank you for such a nice words about our blog. For this curry I’ve used the veggies for wok. This mix includes carrot, bamboo sprouts, snow peas, green beans, leeks, baby corns and broccoli.
The photo shows the rice and curry separate. The instructions indicate dehydrating the curry separately from the rice. But the remainder of the packaging instructions seem to imply putting rice and curry (dry) back together, and the cooking instructions do not mention their being cooked separately. Recognizing the either way could be accurate and tasty, what was your intended procedure?
Hi Scotty! As we often go to the wilderness for 7-9 days, We try to make our life/cooking easier and put rice and vegs together to make a one-pot meal.
Curry has become an integral part of British cuisine, so much so that, since the late 19, chicken tikka masala has been referred to as “a true British national dish”.
Can i ask – Can i store this in air tight (mylar) bags. With or Without oxygen absorbents (if i don’t need to i wont buy any) in the pantry until i take these camping or what have you.
I have read alot of these sorts of recipes online, this recipe being the easiest one by the looks (so thanks for that, i am loving this site!)
But i just wondered as so many people then put the zip locked food in the freezer. But i want to store these read made meals in my pantry. Would it spoil?
Hi, Mieka! You can store zip-lock packed dried food in your pantry for 2-6 months. If you want to keep it longer, better to vacuum-seal bags and put them in a freezer.
