I truly love vegetarian curries. I think they are one of my favourite vegetarian meals that I make at least once a month. It’s worth noting that this recipe actually happens to be vegan as well.
This curry recipe is inspired by Indian curries, thus it uses curry powder, though you can also find Madras curry powder which is from southern India. You’ll often find Thai curry paste used in Thai cuisine, like in my salmon in curried coconut milk.
The key when using curry powder is to make sure that you are “cooking out” the curry powder over heat before adding other ingredients as this helps build flavour.
In addition to curry powder, I add extra flavour with fresh garlic and ginger, ground coriander, cumin and turmeric – these are all spices that are in the curry powder, but I like the added depth a little extra gives this dish.
Which vegetables are best in a coconut curry?
I like to use sturdier vegetables like sweet potatoes and carrots (you could also use regular potatoes). Along with that I’ll add something that has a more neutral flavour (like cauliflower) as it really takes on the flavours of the curry.
I always like to add something green as well so I’ll either add green beans of peas.
