Vegetable Korma

All Indian Flavors Main Coures


This is definitely my favorite vegetable curry. It's hardy, creamy, and delicious!

I personally love a good Korma, and after many many tries to make a paleo style one at home, I finally nailed it!

Korma is usually made with yogurt which gives it a mild tangy flavor but I find it works well without. The cashews and coconut milk make the gravy delectably creamy. If you still want a little bit of that tangy flavor, feel free to add in a bit of lemon juice.

In the recipe, I have listed the vegetables that I used, but feel free to sub with whatever you prefer or have on hand. This recipe is quite versatile and I feel would taste good with anything in it.

Serve it on top of Basmati or cauliflower rice for a perfect vegetarian meal!
