About Recipe

The Indian kitchen is known for its many delicious options when it comes to vegetarian dishes. This particular one is super easy to make, contains only a tiny amount of cream and is full of big flavours. No need to get take-out when you can make this in no time!

We recently attended a wonderful Indian wedding and to my surprise 80% of the food was vegetarian. This is a great example of the fact that you don’t need to include meat to have a tasty and satisfying meal.

Want to make this meal even lighter? Remove the rice and serve the curry with a big salad.
