Best Vegetarian Curry Recipe Ideas

Vegetarian curry dishes are easy to make at home, and they’re great options when you’re craving some comfort food. Here are 7 vegetarian curry ideas.

Vegetarian Curry Dishes

Spicy Quorn Curry with Potato and Peas

Looking for an easy vegetable curry? This one will save you time as well as washing-up, as it’s made in just one pot. Quorn fillets, potato and peas bulk out the tomato-based curry. The sauce gets its flavour from a mixture of spices such as curry powder, garam masala, ground cumin and cardamom seeds, as well as fresh ginger and garlic. Top it with fresh coriander and serve with a side of Basmati rice or crispy poppadoms.

Vegetable Curry

If you only have one vegetarian curry recipe in your repertoire, this should be it! Carrots, cauliflower, sweet potato, cabbage and chopped tomatoes make this a healthy option. Meanwhile, spices like fresh chilli, ground cumin and coriander add a fragrant aroma and taste. It’s easy to make, too. First, sauté the spices, add your veg and stock, then pop a lid on and leave to cook for 30 minutes. To balance out the kick from the spices, we recommend adding a dollop of Greek yoghurt or a homemade raita. Serve with cooked rice or naan bread.

Vegetarian Thai Green Curry

We love a good coconut milk curry and this vegetarian Thai green curry recipe really hits the spot. Aubergine, courgettes and sugar snap peas sit in a rich and creamy sauce. To make the curry, combine shop-bought curry paste, Kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass and vegetarian fish sauce to pack in lots of flavour. Finish the vegetarian green curry off with single cream and a sprinkling of fresh Thai basil.

Vegetarian Chickpea Curry Recipes

We love chickpeas for their nutritional content, taste, texture and versatility – and they’re a great addition to a homemade curry! Pack in extra protein with these vegetarian chickpea curry recipes.

Chickpea Curry

If you’re short on time and ingredients, this is probably the easiest and quickest curry recipe you’ll find. Ready in less than 20 minutes, the dish combines mustard seeds, turmeric, chilli paste and cumin, which are cooked for a few minutes to release their aroma. Next, you simply add bottled passata and a tin of chickpeas, cook for a few minutes, then serve garnished with fresh coriander leaves and low-fat yoghurt. For a vegan chickpea curry, simply swap the yoghurt for a plant-based alternative.

Chickpea and Tomato Curry

Good food needn’t be a hassle! This speedy vegetarian recipe uses fewer than 10 ingredients and is super-simple to make. A spiced tomato sauce made from Madras curry paste and garlic makes for a great base for the chickpeas and spinach, whilst Greek yoghurt lends a creamy texture. The minimal ingredients make this a great recipe for those on a budget, too. This is a lovely main course on its own, served with your choice of rice or bread. Why not serve it as part of a bigger spread alongside other vegetable curries, chutney and raita?

North Indian Vegetarian Curry Recipes

Indian Spiced Potato and Coconut Curry

Potatoes are a hero ingredient in many Indian vegetable curry recipes, and this curry proves why spuds are much more than just a side dish! The curry itself is made with a basic technique of sautéing onion, garlic, ginger and chillies with curry powder to allow the flavours to come together. You then add potatoes, coriander and tamarind for a bit of sweetness, and coconut milk for a creamy finish. The recipe also includes steps to make your own sambal (a chilli-based relish), and chutney. Serve it all with poppadoms or paratha and you have an Indian feast!

Mild Vegetable Curry with Saag Aloo

While many North Indian vegetarian curries pack quite a punch, this one has a medium heat. This recipe takes about an hour to make two dishes that will satisfy your cravings. The mixed vegetable curry uses a pre-made paste to save time, and is packed with vegetables like carrots, cauliflower and courgette. If you don’t have those veggies to hand, you can always swap them out for others such as red peppers, green peas and mushrooms. The accompanying saag aloo – a spiced vegetarian potato curry with spinach – combines cumin seeds, turmeric, garam masala, onion, garlic and ginger to add a fragrant twist to this delicious vegan side dish.

One-pot Curry in a Hurry

Wondering what to make for dinner tonight? This quick and easy vegan lentil curry is ideal as a midweek meal. Rather than creating your own curry paste, it uses a pre-made spice mix. It’s sautéed with carrots, aubergine and potato, before adding in lentils. Coconut milk and peanut butter add a surprising creaminess, whilst spinach and basil bring it all together. To make this dish gluten-free, just ensure that your shop-bought spice mix is free from gluten.

Malaysian Rendang Curry

Rendang is a popular Indonesian curry typically made by slow-cooking meat. This vegan version uses tofu for extra protein, and the addition of a homemade spice paste and coconut milk make this a really rich dish. This recipe does require a few ingredients, but it’s worth it for the end result – plus, it only takes 30 minute of cooking time. The curry paste is a combination of toasted coconut, lemongrass, chillies and ginger, among others. The remaining ingredients are then added and cooked gently to allow all of the flavours to develop. Try serving this dish with plain steamed rice or noodles.

Vegan Thai Curry Recipes

Vegan Thai Red Curry

Packing in heaps of flavour, this fragrant Thai vegetable curry contains three of your 5-a-day. It combines herbs and spices such as lemongrass, ginger and coriander to create a paste that’s then used as a base. After this, you simply add veggies, tofu and coconut milk, and let everything simmer for a few minutes. The curry paste can easily be made ahead of time; this way, it’ll be ready to use at a moment’s notice. You can then prepare the curry with Jasmine rice for a quick and authentic Thai dinner.

Thai Green Sweet Potato Curry

This vegan Thai green curry is a great option if you’re looking for something lighter. It’s super-simple to put together, too. First, roast the sweet potatoes for about 30 minutes. Then, make the curry paste, which combines ingredients like lemongrass, tamari, ginger and green curry paste. We love this vegan curry topped with fresh red chilli, chopped basil, a squeeze of lime juice and fluffy Jasmine rice.

Vegan Japanese Curry Recipe

Broccoli Katsu Curry

If you’ve always wanted to try making vegan katsu curry at home, this simple recipe is sure to please. The roasted broccoli works really well in this curry, and the vegan curry sauce is simply delicious. To make the sauce, add the garlic, onions, carrot and ginger to a frying pan. Cook these with spices for about 10 minutes, then blend everything together until smooth – easy! The broccoli is roasted and baked for just 15 minutes, and then you’re ready to serve! This dish is best enjoyed scattered with spring onions and served with a bowl of brown rice.
