21 Incredible Vegetarian Curry Recipes

21 Vegetarian Curry Recipes - #vegetarian curry recipes |

We’re very pleased to be adding this collection of vegetarian curry recipes to our site. We absolutely love curry and have released many recipes over the years.

If you’re here then you probably already know the joy of a good curry – a delicious flavour made just as spicy as you like. Perfectly cooked rice on the side, backed up by naan bread or chutney. Or both. Or all.

In our humble opinion, vegetable and vegetarian curries are at least equal to, if not superior to, meat curries. Meat isn’t needed in a good curry – flavour, texture and quality is.

All of the following recipes have those in abundance. We’ve collected our favourite vegetarian curries from all around the world and have compiled them all here for ease of use.

Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:15 minutes
Total Time:20 minutes
Servings:2 people


  • 4-5 banana (as green as possible so they stay nice and firm when cooking)
  • 2 tbsp ghee (or oil or butter)
  • 1 tsp cumin, ground
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • ¼ tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 3 tbsp water
  • cup cream (⅔ cup = 150g)
  • Salt to taste



  • Cook rice according to packet instructions.
  • Peel and slice the bananas about ½ cm thick.
  • Heat up the oil (or ghee or butter) in a pan, and add the cumin. Let it fry a little.
  • When the cumin has fried for a couple of minutes, add everything else to the pan and stir gently. That’s the ginger, chili powder, cinnamon, water, turmeric. Do it gently so you don’t mash the bananas too much.
  • Cook for about three minutes, then add the cream and salt. Give another stir and let it heat through. Done!
