Top tips for making this Gordon Ramsay vegetable curry

The curry can be made ahead and then reheated when you’re ready to serve. Leftovers can be kept for a couple of days making this a great meal prep dinner or lunch. Try sprinkling some peanuts or cashews into the finished veggie curry for a tasty, crunchy twist.

What are the best vegetables for curry?

Truthfully, most vegetables are delicious in a curry! Have fun and experiment with what you have in the fridge. Sliced mushrooms have a great meaty texture and absorb the spices and sauce well. Carrots and sweet potato are good choices to bulk it out too. 

What pulses can you add to a curry?

If you want to bulk this out even further, add a can of chickpeas, lentils or butter beans to the mix. You can add the water from the can too. It might take a few minutes longer to simmer and thicken the sauce but the flavour benefits make this a worthy step.

Can you eat vegetable curry with rice?

You can absolutely serve this curry with a side of fluffy rice! It will increase the calorie count but with a 75g portion, the total meal will still be under 500 per person. For something lighter, try serving with a toasted pitta bread or flatbread to soak up the sauce.

“An easy way to elevate the presentation of any recipe, but especially curry, is a sprinkle of fresh herbs just before serving. Coriander would work brilliantly with this curry and I like to use leaves and finely chopped stalks to minimise food waste.”
