Good Korma! 20+ Simple Vegan Curry Recipes

By Anisha Mistry

What’s your comfort food? Peanut butter and jelly on toast? Mashed potatoes? A big bowl of pasta? Being from Indian origins, I wanted to share some deliciously diverse vegan curry recipes, since curry is definitely my personal favourite go-to when I need some food that’s like a hug.

Although many curries in India or Thailand are vegetarian, fewer are actually vegan, since ghee (clarified butter) is a typical ingredient. But vegan curries are easy to make, and packed with nutritious ingredients like  chickpeas, lentils, spices, beans, veggies, tofu, and sometimes even fruits! Oh, and  when we talk about ‘spices’, we’re not referring to chili-hot spices necessarily, but those that provide flavour – the fragrance of the food, if you will.  

And those fragrances have major health benefits, too: if you’ve not got time to grind your own spices,  even store bought curry powder has a number of valuable health benefits, including the prevention of cancer, protection against heart disease, reducing Alzheimer’s symptoms, easing pain and inflammation, boosting bone health, protecting the immune system from bacterial infections, and increasing the liver’s functionality. Just make sure your curry powder is an organic one like this; otherwise it may have been dosed with radiation  to maintain ‘freshness’ (yes, seriously!)

For me, it’s all about the textures, too – from soft, buttery naan to creamy sauces and choosing just the right type of fresh spice. When picking chillies, it’s a matter of taste and smell. Some are sweeter, even fruity, and some have a smoky depth to their flavour. Turmeric and ginger can be (and if you ask me, should be) freshly shredded, not bought powdered,  but do whatever you can to get the freshest possible spices; it will make a huge difference to how your curry tastes.

Shredding your spices is the biggest hassle you’ll have with these easy curry recipes. They may look complex, but most can be made within 20 minutes. Whether you’re a carnivore, a pescetarian, or a vegetarian, you’ll find the burst of complex flavours you’re looking for in these curry recipes for vegans.

1. Vegan Cauliflower Curry

Ah, cauliflower! Is there anything you can’t do? It can be used as rice, as a pizza base, as BBQ ‘wings’ – and of course, in a curry! The freshly ground spices here ensure this dish is as high on flavour as it is low in calories.

See the recipe here.

2. Vegan Red Veggie Curry With Chickpeas

Can you handle this? It’s pretty spicy and has tons of garlic. Not great for a date night, but if you’re craving a dish that’s more potent than polite, this is the one for you!

See the recipe here.

3.  Nutty Mushroom and Coriander Pilaf

If your tastebuds are itching to discover new flavours, try this Nutty Mushroom and Coriander Pilaf recipe. With subtle, homely flavours, it’s definitely a crowd pleaser – just serve with a leafy salad to make the perfect meal.

4. Chana Masala with Chickpeas

Have you just run home, starving, from the office? This is the perfect weeknight dinner because it requires very little preparation. It’s healthy, spicy and an authentic street food staple that is eaten throughout India.

See the recipe here.

5.  Vegan Lentil Curry

I love this recipe! If you use brown rice, you have a complete vegan protein here, with the combination of lentils. Also, if you want to lighten this up, just sub almond milk for coconut. Voila!

6.  Sweet Potato Curry

When nothing else will do and if you are looking for an easy cleanup, this one-pot wonder will have your calorie-conscious houseguests indulging in spoonfuls of deep, satisfying flavour and your non-veggie guests questioning meat, what?

See the recipe here.

7.  Vegetable Curry

You’ll never need to wonder about what to do with your unused vegetables ever again  – this is a stunningly quick way in which to cook them, and tastes even better when reheated the following day.

See the recipe here.

8.  Vegan Paneer Tikka Masala

This is an incredibly mouth-watering, vegan version of a traditional paneer tikka masala. With depth of flavour in a luscious thick sauce, from slowly infusing spices, just remember to stock up on lots of garlicky naan bread for an easy cleanup.

See the full recipe here.

9. Broccoli Potato Curry

Feeling like you need a good dose of healthy vegetables? This is a delicious way to get them into your diet! To really fill up a hungry belly, this spiced broccoli potato curry can be served alongside rice, quinoa, roti, or naan.

See the recipe here.

10. Instant Pot Masala Eggplant Curry

A creative, home-style cooked recipe. With a surprising mix of spices, this curry has depth of flavour, which is a real treat to the senses. It’s easy to make, too.

See the recipe here.

11. Cheap Veggie Curry

Short on time and money? This recipe is easy and quick to make, and the ingredients are readily available to economical. Personally, I’d sub in pumpkin or butternut for the eggplant, and if you love pumpkin as much as I do, you may like these recipes, too.

See the recipe here.

12. Korma Curry

Creamy and comforting with smooth, velvety textures, this is a dish we all crave on those cold, rainy days where we just want to curl up in front of the TV and watch iconic movies with a glass or two of wine. Make this as spicy or as mild as you like, and feel free to add in whichever veggies you have on hand.

See the full recipe here.

13. Vegan Thai Green Curry

If Thai curries are more your thing, this is a great recipe, because it’s packed with all the authentic flavours you love, like galangal, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass and Thai basil. Not a problem if you can find an Asian or International grocery store near you! But if not, you may need to order them online ahead of time.

See the recipe here.

14. Easy Potato, Pea and Carrot Curry

This one is perfect for when the fridge is bare and all you have is frozen veg – but of course, fresh always works best! Add in some spinach for an extra nutritional boost.

Get the recipe here.

15. Vegan Curry Soba Noodles With Tofu

Yep, Japan does curry too! This dish combines the best of Japanese soba and tofu with exotic Asian spices to create a meal that’s packed with flavour and healthy veggies, too.

See the recipe here.

16. Mushroom Matar Masala

Not a fan of the typical potatoes and spinach found in most curries? Go for the earthy taste of mushrooms instead! I love that they also give this dish a meaty texture.

See the recipe here.

17.  Spicy Cabbage and Potato Curry

Sometimes simplicity is best. With humble ingredients you can enjoy something truly spectacular. I prefer this recipe cooked over a wood burning barbecue to enjoy crunchy cabbage leaves with charred edges, served with sweet and sour pickle.

See the recipe here.

18. Aloo Baingan

It sounds exotic, but this is an easy curried eggplant, tomato and potato curry recipe. Get some whole spices roasted in oil, some ground coriander, turmeric and/or cayenne, add veggies, salt and some moisture and cook until tender. Voila!

See the recipe here.

19.  Green Curry With Brown Rice Noodles And Swiss Chard

Fresh herbs have a cooling effect when combined with fresh chillies, which adds contrast in colour, fragrance and texture. They make the curry much lighter – and all the more addictive.

See the recipe here.

20.  Easy Bean Sprout Curry

A quick, healthy and vegan option for those days you need a quick meal. Cooked with a few spices, they are a tiny treat which are exquisite when tucked into little pockets of naan bread, turning it into something deeply satisfying, filling and dense.

See the recipe here.

21. Simple Chickpea Curry

Coconut milk and chickpeas are a marriage made in heaven! The nuttiness of the chickpeas is enhanced by the sweetness of the coconut, and the addition of the Indian flavours are just the ‘spicing’ on the cake!

Get the recipe here.

22. Thai Green Curry With Zoodles

Looking for something lighter? The substitution of rice for zoodles – that is, zucchini noodles in case you weren’t aware – lowers the carb count here.

Get the recipe here.

23. Coconut Curry with Tofu

If  you want something a bit meatier, so to speak, this curry is for you. The crispy tofu makes a great contrast to the creamy chickpeas and coconut milk. If you love eating tofu as your vegan protein, you may want to check these recipes out, too.

24. 30 Minute Coconut Curry

This one reminds me of a dish I had at Bali Buddha in Indonesia – another country that loves a good curry! You can basically add whatever vegetables you may have on hand.

Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you.

Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies.

Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others.

However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail.

In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password.

In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.
