We all love a hearty vegan curry! And today, we are making a delicious and super easy Broccoli Pepper Curry inspired by Southern Indian cuisine. This dish will transport you to the other side of the world with its mouthwatering taste and the incredible aromas invading your home.
I have curry dishes for days here at Vegan.io. And I don't think I will ever get bored of creating new curry recipes. Sometimes I come up with ideas from scratch. And other times, I will take inspiration from the typical cuisine of a region and either add my touch or make it vegan.
For this broccoli curry recipe, I made my own concoction. I had a few different veggies and ingredients floating in my kitchen. I needed to use them ASAP before they went in the bin. So I put everything together in this incredibly hearty dish, and the result is amazing.
I used Indian cuisine as inspiration for this dish, and some of the elements they often use. For this recipe I mixed herbs and spices I don't usually put together and created a unique and delicious dish. You will find bay leaves, curry powder, and curry leaves all in the same pot.
I hadn't used these three ingredients together before. I always had the idea that bay leaves and curry leaves were pretty much the same. But I was wrong! Both have that slightly sweet citrus taste. But each will add a unique flavour that makes your vegan curry dishes super special.
I've used bay leaves many times, but I'm a bit new to curry leaves. These leaves are widely used in the south of India. They use them in curries, rice, deals, soups, and many other dishes. It might not seem like it but it's so worth having both of them in the same dish.
And, don't do as I did and get confused with curry leaves and curry powder. The leaves are simply that, dried leaves from the curry leaf tree. Whilst the powder is a combination of different spices, such as coriander, cumin, turmeric, cayenne pepper or a variation of this, depending on what part of the country you are in.
I like using all of them because they are simple ingredients that you can easily find at the shops. With them, we add a ton of flavour to any vegan curry in such a simple way. Once you have the curry sorted out, all you need to do is decide on the veggies and protein you are adding.
In this recipe, we have some colourful veggies to make it extra hearty. I added broccoli florets, red bell pepper, and yellow onion. And I usually serve it with a side of brown rice, to make sure we have some complex carbs in our diet.
The cooking process is super simple which makes it a great recipe for both beginners and those looking for a quick easy yet delicious meal. We love how flavourful this vegan curry turned out and how hearty and comforting it is to the soul.
