Skip the Takeaway and make this Quick and Easy Vegetable Korma! It can be on your table in just 30 minutes, making it perfect for busy nights or midweek meals.
One thing I have identified recently is that I cook so many Quick and Easy Vegetarian Vegan recipes, ready in just 30 minutes, but somehow many of them never made it to the blog.
And one among those recipes is this Veg Korma, which is one of my favorite curries to whip up when I am in a hurry or even when I have cook for a potluck party. It is different to the South Indian style hotel kurma, that is usually served with porotta – but with similar flavors.
My version of the Indian korma is better than local Indian takeaways in the UK and quicker too!!
So here is one of our favorite Creamy Indian Korma recipe that cooks in just 20 minutes.
THE HOMEMADE VEGAN KORMA SAUCE
To make this creamy Indian Veg Korma, it all starts with a good Kurma sauce recipe.
Although you can buy store-bought sauce for convenience, I prefer to make it at home. Homemade Korma Sauce is authentic, delicious, full-on flavor and so much lighter in texture. It is so easy to customize the spice level when you make it at home.
First make the Onion Puree with white onion, ginger, garlic, chili, and cashew nuts. Add this prepared onion puree along with fragrant spice powders to the pan and cook briefly until fragrant.
This forms the base of the easiest and the most delicious Korma Sauce.
