Cocunut Curied Veggies and Rice

This is a great vegetarian dish with a lot of flavor. I've had this recipe for so long that I don't remember where it came from.Coconut Curried Veggies and Rice

2 cups water
2 Tbs. flour
1 1/2 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 (14 oz.) can coconut milk
1 tsp. lime juice
1 (1 lb.) pkg. frozen broccoli, carrots & cauliflower (I can never find the mix and buy a couple of bags and always use more than 1 lb.)
1 cup frozen peas

In a small bowl, combine flour, curry powder, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup of the coconut milk. Beat with a wire whisk until smooth. Stir in the remaining coconut milk and lime juice. Set aside.

In a large saucepan/fry pan, combine the frozen veggies and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 6-8 minutes or until veggies are crisp-tender. Drain and set aside. Pour coconut milk mixture into same pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Stir in veggies. Cook over medium heat until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Serve over prepared rice.

* Sometimes if we aren't feeling the vegetarian option I add in some diced, cooked chicken.
