Veg korma – A no-stress healthy and delicious vegan curry for a fabulous weekday meal. Whip up this tasty curry in less than 30 minutes, and share it with your friends and family.
This is one of the best healthy, vegan curries I have ever had. You know, I love a good non-vegetarian meal, but this veggie loaded curry is totally nutritious making this one of my all-time favorites. Just like chana (chickpea) masala, mushroom korma and sweet potato chickpea curry.
This veg korma is 100% traditional, but the unique combo of flavors make it delicious and highly addictive. It’s such a simple recipe, but all those veggies in a rich and flavorful sauce tastes beyond amazing. Honestly, I’m super excited about sharing this recipe with you.
For the sauce, we’ll grind a few ingredients and add to the curry. An easy way to make it rich and thick. We’ll grind together grated coconut, cashew nuts, ginger, garlic and a few spicy green chilies. Apart from cashew nuts, one of the most important ingredients for a thick sauce is coconut. If you do not want to add grated coconut, consider using coconut milk or thickened (heavy) cream. Remember to add them towards the end of cooking process. Just heat through (do not boil) and remove from heat.
Next up, we’ll make this veg korma curry. Soften some onions in oil followed by roasting a few essential spices that make every Indian curry shine. I’m talking about turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala and a little red chili powder for that spice kick. Now the ground cashew nut paste goes into the curry.
The core elements of this veg korma, I mean, the veggies are cooked in the cashew paste and spices until tender. Believe me, this simple veg curry is so good. The frozen peas literally turns this into a vibrant dish. If you are using fresh or dried peas, cook them separately and add to the curry.
Finally, sprinkle with some chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves, and you have the perfect vegan side dish.
