Again a Curry ? But of course, because what would be a vegan life without curries. Personally, I love them more than anything because they are so quick to make. The variations are also really endless and so you can cook your way through the year with always new ideas. If you are reading this Recipe I am in Barcelona right now with my husband. I’ve been there a few times, but he’s never been there and I really want to show him this great city. Of course, I use the trip also once to get me new ideas and inspiration. I am already sooooo excited!

What actually is a massaman curry?

At the very beginning, I would like to briefly note again that today’s Curry is a variation. The original Massaman curry comes from Thailand and is made with a special curry paste and not (as in our case) with ground spices. For the paste you actually need Thai shallots, chili peppers, garlic cloves, galangal, lemongrass, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, peppercorns, salt and shrimp paste. That’s when I realized pretty quickly that no one has that in the house (and it’s not vegan either) and interpreted the recipe for myself. Quick, easy and with ingredients that everyone has in the cupboard.

Plant-based Curry , my dears! We need oil, red onion, ginger, garlic, broccoli, red bell bell pepper, carrots, red curry paste, cumin, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, cayenne pepper, turmeric, peanut butter, beans, maple syrup, tamari, coconut milk and water. If you like, you can add some star anise and fennel seeds.

Especially when I’m expecting visitors and I’m cooking for several people, I think it’s Curries ingenious. It’s easy to prepare and with the right side dishes, everyone will be full. Rice, quinoa or fresh baked Naan bread . Your guests will love you to pieces (unless you put too much chili in it).

What must not be missing in any case? A portion of vegetable protein and we get it for example from Tofu . How about Crispy Tofu ? I find the fits perfectly. Otherwise, you can always add a portion of chickpeas to the curry. Chickpeas Chickpeas, also known as the vegan chicken, are a wonderful source of protein and full of healthy fiber.

TIP: Sprinkle a portion of seeds and seeds over the curry. Sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and hemp seeds are absolute nutrient boosters. Simply sprinkle over your curry as a topping and voilá!

Massaman curry is not to your taste? How would it be then for example with a Cauliflower curry , Spinach curry , Korma curry , Pumpkin Curry or Tikka Masala ? I am sure you will find the right thing for you.
