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.
