Rogan Josh with beef

Rogan Josh is an absolute classic of Indian cuisine, which can be found in almost every Indian restaurant in the world - even if the quality varies greatly. Lamb is often used for the classic Rogan Josh. But lamb is not for everyone, and besides, it is at least in my area in autumn and winter [...]

Pea curry with fresh fenugreek

Fenugreek is an extremely common spice in Indian cuisine. However, the dried seeds are used here. Fenugreek is also available fresh and green. In this country, the stems, which are sold in bundles like salad herbs, are most likely to be found in Turkish supermarkets. I find the taste very interesting, which is why this curry is one of my favorite dishes. [...]

This vegan chickpea curry with asparagus has been one of my favorite dishes lately. I admit, I am currently having an “Indian phase”.

Indian lentils with cauliflower and harissa

I honestly can't get enough Indian food. If it's also vegetarian or even vegan, then that's a welcome change for me. And if it goes very quickly and costs little - all the better. This recipe for Indian red lentils with cauliflower and harissa combines all [...]


Indian cauliflower korma

“Korma” is one of these typical Indian types of preparation. Just like Tandoori or Vindaloo, you will find various “commas” on the menu at every Indian restaurant that is fairly self-respecting. Usually, however, animal protein is involved, most commonly chicken or lamb. This shows that Korma can also be prepared vegetarian with cauliflower, which is very good [...]
