Spicy Vegan Tikka Masala Recipe

This "Tikka Masala" is a real crowd pleaser, with lots of infused heat and a luscious, thick sauce. Vegetarian, vegan, and delicious!

Ingredients

2 onions, chopped
1 T ground fenugreek
1.2 T cumin seed

2 T ground coriander seed
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 thumb print sized piece of ginger, finely chopped
1 1/2 green chili pepper, chopped (desire of heat)
1 T of garam masala
1 can of sieved tomato
15-20 T of soya cream (desire of consistency)
1 can of chickpeas
1.4 cup water
Salt, to taste
Cilantro for garnish

Directions

In a large frying pan, add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and heat over medium. Add chopped onions to the frying pan and cook until soft and translucent.
Move onions to the side of the pan, add fenugreek, cumin, and coriander to the opposing side, keeping them untouched until aroma appears.
Once onions, fenugreek and cumin are mixed together, throw in chili pepper, garlic, and ginger. Stir together until garlic aroma appears. Mix in garam masala to form a paste. Add tomatoes and mix.
Add cream and mix well. Bring to boil.
Add water and chickpeas [or, whatever vegetable you want] and cover. Simmer for five minutes (this will allow your curry to thicken a bit, although it should turn out to be on the saucy side).
Add salt to taste.
Serve with rice and garnish with coriander. Enjoy!

Vegan Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Vegan Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
