Curry and dhal make great comfort foods that are practical and easy to make. You can easily incorporate any leftover veggies and spices to enjoy a warm, hearty meal every time. Always keep on hand the basics that go into Indian food like sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, broccoli and leeks - all vegetables with a longer shelf life. Add some pantry essentials such as quinoa, lentils, coconut milk and mixed nuts, to make a curry easy as 1-2-3!
