Easy Vegetarian Curry

My friend made me this curry for dinner and last week and it was so delicious that I had to make it for myself this week. The receipe doesn't have precise measurements so you kind of have to experiment until you get it right but it is worth it.

What do you need?
Two fresh tomato and can of tomatoes
Two Onions
One clove of garlic
300g of peas
Ground coriander seeds
Paneer Cheese

What do you need to do?
1. Fry up two onions and add garlic, chilli, tumeric, coriander seeds (ground) and cumin. I added approximately two table spoons of coriander, four of turmeric, 3 of cumin and one of chilli but seriously play around until you get the taste the way you like it.
2. Then add two fresh tomatoes and a tin of crushed or diced tomatoes, then throw in peas and simmer that for 15 or so minutes until the peas change from bright green to a dull green.
3. Then add the paneer cheese and cook for another 5-10 mins.

I add a dollop of greek yoghurt and serve. It also freezes really well so is great to take as lunch for work and so forth. Enjoy!


  1. Oh yummy! Being a vegetarian, I do make a paneer with peas curry. I've never added cauliflower though. Thanks for the tip!

  2. oh yum! I think I'll add this to my dinner menu this week... Thanks, Megan!

  3. Thanks for reading my blog!
    Looks like a very tasty meal! Something new that's for sure! Always worth a try. :)

  4. Yum, this looks amazing. I might have to try it out!

  5. Vegetarian curry is the best winter dinner ever. I love how you can just throw in whatever vegetables you have and it always turns out delicious. We like to make ours using those Japanese curry seasoning things (they're kind of a block, and you melt it in water like a stock cube). Mm, curry...

  6. DELICIOUS!!! indian is my faveeee (esp curries!) and yet i have never tried to make it because i've been so intimidated. THANK-YOU for the recipe cos i'm going to try this.

    ps. my husband was the first to introduce me to yogurt used as "sour cream" on baked potato... GENIUS!

  7. This looks amazingly yummy! I definitely want to try this recipe soon! X
