This quick & easy vegetable curry is packed with potatoes, aubergine and mushrooms to make it a filling evening meal. Plus it's gluten free and suitable for vegans!
Mondays 😫 Aren't they just the worst? I'm always so sad when I wake up on Monday mornings. The alarm goes off and I just lie there for a second feeling sorry for myself before dragging myself out of bed. To make matters even worse it's now dark when I get up, so miserable.
So what I really need at the end of a long Monday is a warming, comforting, spicy bowl of curry and this quick & easy vegetable curry is just the thing. I have a real love of potato in curry, there's something about the way the potato sucks up all that curry flavour and is perfectly tender. Deeeeelish. Plus it's meatless! Meatless for meatless Monday!
For this curry I made my own curry paste which you totally don't have to do if you want to make this curry even quicker. A shop bought one would work, just try and get a good quality one. We served this quick & easy vegetable curry with rice but you could have it with any grain you fancy, even better with some naan!
