Sosatie Flavoured Fruit & Vegetable Curry

Sasotie Flavoured Fruit & Vegetable Curry

This Sosatie flavoured fruit curry has delicious flavours and smells from the Sunshine Coast's locally made Afrika Sasotie Aromatic Curry with Apricots sauce (you can buy online or create your own Sosatie sauce) and uses fresh local pineapple, and is  served with a wholegrain/wild rice and local Essential Grain Crusty Sour Dough Bread. The fruity flavour and being a non-hot curry makes this a great family dish and popular with kids and guests. The smells while it cooks alone will get the whole house excited about dinner.
Perfect for a chilli day.

1 jar Afrika Sosatie curry sauce ( you can buy this all around the sunshine coast and online or google Sosatie and make your own!)
1 large fresh pineapple
2 stalks celery
1 red capsicum
3 zucchini’s
1 large sweet potato
1 onion
½ cup dried apricots
4 teaspoons garlic
2 teaspoons mild chilli ( or to taste/optional)
1 tin apricot halves in natural juice, drain and save juice.
1 litre vegetable stock
1 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups wholegrain rice
¼ cup wild rice
2 tablespoon tapioca flour (gluten free)
Crusty Sour Dough or gluten free bread to serve
Natural yoghurt to serve (optional, I use Maleny Dairies)
A deep frying pan/pot suitable for cooking the curry in

Combine the wholegrain and wild rice. Cook together according to packet instructions but using the vegetable stock in place of water, adding additional water as needed. Keep warm or time it so rice is warm when serving the curry.
Peel and chop the sweet potato. Par boil until it can be just penetrated with a fork.
Chop the onions and fry in a deep pan with the olive oil, chilli and garlic until they are slightly transparent.
Chop the zucchini, fresh pineapple, capsicum and celery into bite sized pieces.
Add them into the onion mix with the sweet potato and dried apricots and stir through.
Pour in the Sosatie sauce, mix and gradually add in the cup of water and half a cup of the apricot juice from the tinned apricots.
Bring to the boil and then simmer on a medium low heat.
Whisk the tapioca flour in an equal amount of cold water.
Add in the tapioca flour to thicken the sauce.
Stir occasionally and add extra water to the whole dish as needed.
When all vegetables are cooked add in the drained apricots from the tin, stir through 2 minutes.
Serve alongside the rice and with slices of fresh crusty essential tastes bread and optionally a dollop of Maleny Dairies natural yoghurt.

This dish smells amazing when it is cooking, great for entertaining and dinner parties or to come home too!
The fresh pineapple and apricots in this really give a sweet and tasty twist on curry and make it very palatable to children and even non curry fans.
Tastes even better the second day, so great for leftover lunches.
Add fresh, hot red chilli’s to give it some heat.
Alternatively serve with pappadams.

      You could try and make the sauce yourself or something similar? Or they might already have a stockist in New Zealand? Here is their website :)
