Step 2. Find the easiest meal to make that can include the most kinds of veggies.

Step 3. Try to figure out how to make this thing you want to make.

Look at the back of the curry box.  Remember than most of it is too hard for you to read.  Decide you're too lazy to pull out your dictionary.  Wing it based on the pictures.

Step 4. Assemble the ingredients.

Step 9.  Remind yourself that, despite appearances, curry is tasty and you like it a lot.

That looks tasty, right?

Step 10. Rejoice in the fact that you finally time this correctly.  Eat it while it’s hot.

Nomnomnom.  No other caption needed.

Step 11. Don’t forget dessert!
