“A fabulous vegetarian curry, which I got off a blog, -- taste and fall in love! You can add a finely chopped hot chilli if you want to spice it up.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put a little bit of oil in a deep, heavy bottomed frying pan and brown the cheese, turning frequently so no sides burn. When it is browned, set aside on a plate.
  2. Add more oil, if needed, to the pan and throw in the onions.
  3. Let them fry until golden, then add the garlic and spices.
  4. Fry some more for a couple minutes, then add the tin of tomatoes and about 1/2 cup of water.
  5. Let simmer for about five minutes, then put in the fried cheese and peas and simmer covered over a low heat for about 20 minutes.
  6. Check the consistency and simmer some more if needed to bring it down to a thickness you like.
  7. Serve with rice and other Indian curries of your choice.
