How To Make Vegetarian Curry

This recipe is one of my favorites. For some reason it makes me feel something similar with a warm hug. It’s perfect for these colder days and also good for keep Vata dosha in balance during this season.

I love the contrast between tastes that I found into this recipe, it’s sweet, salty, spicy, creamy and warm.

It’s one of my classics in the kitchen, my own version of a veggie curry after I had tried some recipes from books and personalised it according to my likes.

I encourage you to try it at your home.

In my kitchen the spices are a must, and in this recipe I used:

  1. Heat the coconut oil with the cumin seeds and the fresh ginger over medium-high heat until the oil is melted, and the seeds are fragrant.
  2. Add in the rest of spices, the salt and pepper and the onion. Cook until the mix is tender and fragrant, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add in the coconut milk, cauliflower, zucchini and white mushrooms. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, and then sauce is thick and bubbly, about 10 minutes.
