Vegetarian Vegetable Curry is a delight for vegetarians and non vegetarians alike. The simple flavours and body of the vegetables make this recipe a meal that’ll fill even the heartiest of appetites. The lovely textures of the blended cashew nuts into a cashew milk makes the sauce lovely and creamy. Furthermore, the number of vegetables that could be used is immense. Hence you could adjust the ingredients according to the seasonal availability and your taste buds. Also, you can freeze this so its ideal to make in bulk and store for another day.
