Vegetarian Curry Vegan Curry After spending years struggling with food, I try to not label myself when it comes to the food I eat. One thing I do attest too is my love for vegetarian food. Mix this with my love for my mothers Indian cooking and I came up with these two easy vegetarian curries to make when I am on my own.

OKRA Curry 

Ingredients 

  • 1 Packet of chopped Okra (Fresh is preferable but I don’t live near to a market)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1/2 a tub of Passatta
  • 1tsp of Tumeric
  • 1tbs Red Chillis
  • Garlic
  • 1tsp Salt
  • 1tps of Oil
  • 200ml of water

Method 

  1. Simply slice the onions place in a pan with the Tumeric, Garlic, Chilli and Salt.
  2. Saute until slightly brown
  3. If using fresh Okra, chop and add to pan.
  4. Add the passata and some water
  5. Mix and let cook for 3o-40 mins

Serve with Chappattis or Rice 

Rye Potatoes 

Ingredients 

  • 1 Onion
  • 1tbp of Tumeric
  • 1tbs Red Chillis
  • Garlic
  • 1tsp Salt
  • 1tps of Oil
  • Boiling Water
  • Three medium potatoes
  • Mustard Seeds (I used two handfuls – use more or less as desired)

Method 

  1. Place mustard seeds in a pan with oils to cook, slightly for 5 minutes
  2. Slice the onions place in a pan with the Tumeric, Garlic, Chilli and Salt.
  3. Saute until slightly brown
  4. Chop potatoes into small squares
  5. Place potatoes in microwave for 5 minutes
  6. Once done in the Microwave place potatoes in pot
  7. Boil water fill water until the potatoes are covered
  8. Cook until water evaporates and potatoes are soft (Roughly 40 minutes)

Serve with Chapattis

The reason I love these two recipes is that they are nutritious, filling, warming on a cold winter day and do not take long to cook at all. When I cook these dishes, I cook them simultaneously which means I can get two dishes cooked in under an hour. The above serves 2 people so if you live alone it is perfect for meal prep and each dish can last you a couple of days.

I know this is slightly different for my blog but I hope you liked it and realise that Indian cooking doesn’t have to be unhealthy or expensive. They are also quite easy to make at home.
