One of the important reasons I made this Vegan Spinach Curry Recipe is our daily busy lives. We all are very busy with our schedules and being Vegan, at times it’s difficult for us to get healthy food anywhere or at any food joint. So, we thought why not make a curry recipes which can be refrigerated for around 3-4 days which can be used to whenever need be. For example- vegetable curry, curried rice, or just have it plain with steamed rice or roti (flat bread). While you are busy and going to work or college. Just take this curry out of your refrigerator and make your dish and move on with your daily chores / routine in no time.
Spinach curry is gently spiced with the Indian flavours of cumin, coriander and turmeric. It really tastes good even without adding anything. I really like the flavours of spinach curry and basmati rice and I prefer my soya crunchies to munch on with by the side . You should try this combo! It is just awesome! You can even have this as sides to roti or just plain rice.
Spinach is a green, leafy vegetable that is cheap and affordable for everyone. It is a rich source of minerals and vitamins.
