Warming Vegetarian Curries For Winter

Warming Vegetarian Curries For Winter

There is nothing quite like a heart-warming curry on a cold winter’s night. The historical Indian influence in South Africa as well as the fact that we were geographically located on the spice route, firmly embedded curry culture in our local cuisine. Curry is enjoyed across the nation, by people from all backgrounds far and wide.

These days many South Africans are choosing to go meat-free and are looking for vegetarian curry recipes that taste every bit as good as their meaty counterparts. Vegetarian curry can be filling, wholesome and delicious, as well as cheaper than meat options. Additionally, vegetables cook quicker than meat which means a veggie curry is ideal for a weeknight when you need to be quick on your feet in putting dinner on the table. Vegetarian curry is also nourishing because it can pack in many different types of vegetables which contribute to your 5-a-day.
