This is a really easy dinner and a great place to start if you are new to plant based cooking and looking for a nourishing tasty dinner. Tinned butter beans are really creamy and delicious and they go so well with the rich umami coconut and tomato based sauce. In terms of spices we use here, we keep it quite generic with curry powder and ground cumin, you can obviously spice things up if you like a little heat. Serving with some freshly ground black pepper also really adds another depth of flavour too.
FODMAP stands for fermentable, oligosaccharide disaccharide, monosaccharide and polyols which is a total mouthful!! Basically it means fermentable carbohydrate. This is a low fodmap curry so it is low in fermentable carbohydrates so really good for anyone with a sensitive gut or tummy. Some of the main high fodmap foods that can cause bloating or irritation are garlic, onion and beans/lentils. Fodmaps are super important and great for your health but for some people with sensitive guts reducing high fodmap foods for a period of time can help them to not feel bloated or irritated.
