A simple version of a popular Indian dish, made vegan and healthy too!

This vegan butter chicken curry is incredibly tasty and delicious. There are tons of veggies in this curry but you could definitely add in some plant based protein such as tofu, vegan chicken pieces, light soya chunks as well as chickpeas.

I love to serve this curry on top of a big bowl of brown rice, with a generous sprinkle of green onion or spring onion and a big squeeze of fresh lemon juice. You could definitely serve this curry with some roti or go non-traditional and serve it with some mashed potatoes, that's yummy too!

It took me a few attempts to get to this final recipe, I am super proud of it and I honestly hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
