Vegetarian curry recipes make for a really delicious meat-free supper. Much better than a takeaway or shop-bought jars of curry, they're just as delicious and healthier too
Vegetarian curry recipes are so quick and easy to make and are a fantastic way to get creative with vegetables, whether you’re vegetarian or want a night or two off meat.
These vegetarian curry recipes are full of flavour and will keep you away from that takeaway menu too. They are easy to make from mainly storecupboard ingredients and are inexpensive too – especially if you already have the spices in your kitchen.
This cauliflower curry with Keralan lemon rice also happens to be vegan and will show you just how hassle-free it is to make your own curry from scratch. You’ll never again reach for the jars of ready-made curry paste or sauce – you’ll only ever make your own once you see how easy it is and how much more healthy and delicious homemade is.
A homemade vegetarian curry is a much healthier alternative to a takeaway and yet so full of flavour. You can use plenty of seasonal veg and make a really speedy midweek meal, or if you have longer at the weekend you can pick a recipe that will happily sit and bubble away for a while.
We have plenty of recipes that use chickpeas or lentils as their base, and a few that are more unusual but still great flavour and texture combinations. Try making a boiled egg curry, or a dry curry for something a little different. Pumpkin and sweet potato curry is a favourite, as is spinach and paneer curry, which is a takeaway classic – except you’ll find our recipe is much healthier and lighter, plus it’s ready in under an hour, so you can make it any day of the week!
As long as you stock up on the right seasoning, herbs and spices, you’ll be set for most of our vegetarian curry recipes. And once you’ve tried them a few times, why not experiment and throw in a few of your favourite veg too.
We’ve got plenty more curry recipes for you to try if you’re in need of even more inspiration.
