Vegetable Curry

Vegetable Curry is an Indian dish that is mainly composed of potatoes, chickpeas or lentils, and most especially spices. It is healthy, easy, delicious and so flavourful that even a non-vegetable eater in your family would love to have it again.

Believe me, when I say, a person who doesn’t love to eat vegetables would love to eat this dish again because my husband did. This holy week, my family is in a strict “NO MEAT WEEK”. So starting today, we will be just eating vegetables. We’ll be having fish on Black Saturday though, but for 5 whole days, nobody in my family is allowed to eat meat. We’re abstaining from meat for penance. They all agreed to this policy, a good reminder and awareness of Holy Week, and also a good way to detox for health purposes.
