Spicy, African Vegetable Curry: A Vegan Delight!


I belong to an absolute “curry-eating” household. Our meals are incomplete without a curry. Quite bored of having the same old curries over and over again, I decided that I’d explore a new cuisine. I’d venture into the tastes and flavors of Africa, and boy did I love it!

I made this African Vegetable Curry for dinner one night and it has now become a family favourite! It is packed with flavour from 13 different spices and has a distinct taste truly representing Africa. All I needed to make my curry was the African Spice Blend : “Berbere” and the rest was easy-peasy :D

Do you want to know the recipe to my African Vegetable Curry? Here it is!


  • Vegetables of your Choice ( I like to use capsicum, beans and potatoes)
  • 3 tbspns Onions + ginger + garlic paste 
  • 1 cup coconut milk 
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbspn Berbere
  • Salt to taste


  • In a pan with hot oil, add the onion + ginger + garlic paste. Sauté it on low flame, careful not to burn.
  • After 2 minutes of cooking the paste, add the Berbere. Mix very well and cook the masala until the raw smell goes and it is aromatic.
  • Add the coconut milk and mix well. The mixture will turn into a beautiful bright orange color. Add the water too.
  • Now, add your veggies and let them sit in the watery curry until they are cooked.
  • Keep on medium flame and let the water reduce until the curry boils down to a beautiful thick gravy.

Once the veggies are cooked, serve the curry with some buttered rice and Enjoy a delicious dinner!

PS: You can also substitute the Veggies for any Meat of your choice and cook in the same procedure.
