Recipe - 🍛 Bulk-Cooked Curry

Final Product: Bulk-Cooked Curry

There is no doubt that the above picture looks a little messy, but seeing as I'm cooking for myself (and wrote this blog post months after the fact) I figured it doesn't matter. 😁

  • 2 x Onion
  • 2-3 x Pepper
  • 500g Mushrooms
  • 1 x 400ml can of coconut milk

  • 1-2 handful of lentils (optional)
  • Curry powder (optional)
