Creamy Vegetable Curry Recipe


Yummy Creamy Vegetable CurryI’m not a vegetarian but I just love this recipe for creamy vegetable curry! When you want a tasty curry for dinner and you haven’t got any meat then this curry is great.

The mild spice and tangy sour cream provide wonderful flavours and you don’t notice that there is no meat. This is coming from someone who normally has meat of some description in all of my main meals!


I found this recipe some time ago on a packet of Continental chicken noodle soup mix and initially thought that it would be unsatisfying because it didn’t have any meat in it.


Eventually I did give it a try and it was such a hit that my family have enjoyed it twice in the last few weeks.


I have made just a couple of alterations to the original recipe. I have reduced the amount of curry to one teaspoon because my family like milder curries. Also I have doubled the amount of peas to one cup as ½ a cup didn’t seem enough for the size of this recipe.

This creamy vegetable curry was fairly quick to make. The only preparation required was cutting up the vegetables and this could be done in advance to save time. It took me around 20 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook.


Normally I would provide a link to the original recipe but I can’t find it on the Continental website so you will just have to trust me on this one 😉
