What do you consider “a hurry”? I made the spice mixture for this ahead of time, and just left it in my mini food processor in case it needed to be re-processed. It meant that dinner came together in less than the time it took to cook the rice. I added spinach because I like what curry does for spinach, and I like having everything all together. Everyone ate this, and I cut out the serrano peppers to appease our sensitive tongues. You can certainly add them back in and up the spice. You could leave out the spinach, but you can also add more or less. It’s not a picky recipe, which also helps with a time crunch. For a large portion, you are just stirring occasionally while discussing cars with your toddler. Or whatever you do in your spare cooking time.
