World Vegan Month: Vegan Curry

Filed under:

World-Vegan-Month-earthThis week’s recipe is really quick and simple, and one of my favourite treats.

For me it doesn’t get much better than a home-made curry.

“The first curry recipe in Britain appeared in The Art of Cookery made Plain and Easy by Hannah Glasse in 1747. The first edition of her book used only black pepper and coriander seeds for seasoning of “currey”. By the fourth edition of the book, other ingredients such as turmeric and ginger were called for. The use of hot spices was not mentioned, which reflected the limited use of chili in India — chili plants had only been introduced into India around the late 15th century and at that time were only popular in southern India.” From Wikipedia

Once the rice is on, both these dishes can be prepped and cooked alongside each other and everything served together. A few variations can be made to these dishes if desired, such as the type of lentil you prefer to use, I've used tinned here as they are the quickest option, however you can use dried if you prefer and just add water. As for the spice in this dish, that's up to you too, for me I like a very hot Dahl and a mild Saag Aloo.
