Vegetables Curry 蔬菜咖喱

When come to vegetarian meal, my kids only can accept vegetables curry as they love all sort of curry .

First need to cook a good pot of vegetarian stock. I opt to add some cashew nuts to give extra nutritious to this curry.

Cooking the vegetables curry

I like to pan fry brinjal instead of adding them into curry, as it give nicer colour and more tasty.

Also i prefer to use homemade basic chili paste

Recipe by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover


  1. My kids do not take curry, I can still adopt the recipe without adding the curry.

  2. Sonia, your recipe came in just at the right time. I have a lot of different types of vegetables to clear in the fridge and this is perfect to clear things up. Very very yummy, only variations I made was add some belacan powder. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This looks really delicious! Is it ok if i use soy milk instead of coconut milk?

  4. Chew Li Yin, should be ok to change but the taste might will be difference
