Delicious African Vegetarian Curry

Updated on November 25, 2013

I don't cook much, but I'm willing to rattle the pots and pans for this one. This recipe was given to me by an African lady. It's so good the meat-eaters were lapping it up. Mine is nowhere near as good as hers, but it's still yummy.

This makes a rich, tomatoey curry.

This recipe serves four.

Quorn is a meat substitute made from mushroom protein, It's very versatile. You may have to source Quorn from your local supermarket, as the Quorn chunks don't seem to be available from Amazon. You can substitute Quorn fillets cut into chunks.

Cook Time

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35-45 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1 packet of Quorn chicken-flavoured chunks (fresh or frozen)
  • Two onions
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • The following measurements are approximate:
  • Ground turmeric, cumin, coriander and ginger
  • Chilli (fresh, dried or powdered) to taste
  • Vegetable stock powder
  • Coconut cream


  1. If the Quorn chunks are frozen, defrost them and drain them so the curry is not too watery.
  2. Slice the onions and fry in a saucepan until softened, but stop before they take on any colour.
  3. Very important: keep a lid on the saucepan while frying the onions, this keeps in the steam.
  4. Add the spices and fry gently for 2-3 minutes, keeping covered. Keep an eye on the pan to make sure nothing burns.
  5. Add the tomatoes.
  6. Add a little stock powder. You may want to add more later.
  7. Add the Quorn chunks, cover and simmer gently for 20-30 minutes. Check after 15 minutes to see if you need to add a little water.
  8. Taste the curry and add a little more stock powder if necessary. Remember, the stock powder is very salty.
  9. Finish with the coconut cream.
  10. The more coconut cream you add, the more creamy and rich this dish will be, but the more calories and saturated fat it will have. So it's your choice! Quorn is very low in fat, so that balances it out.
  11. Serve with plenty of rice, and side vegetables such as sweet potatoes, yam or fried plaintain, as well as green vegetables like cabbage or spinach. Carrots also go well.
  12. Make sure you serve a bottle of chilli sauce on the side for those who want it.
