Fall Vegetable Curry

Cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and chickpeas simmer together in a spicy curry sauce to create a memorable fall meal. So fall is finally here, time for hearty soups, pumpkin pies, football and  family get togethers. I was hoping to make a pumpkin recipe for the first day of fall, but I went to three different grocery stores looking for purred pumpkin and there was none to be found! Instead I decided on this hearty vegetable curry. Indian food is my all time favorite ethic food. Looking back on my previous posts, I cannot believe that this is my first Indian recipe. This recipe is quick and easy to make for a busy weeknight meal. Thirty minutes is all you need to make a spicy, delicious and satisfying vegetable curry.

    Recently I tried a curry soup and I liked so much. I think your Fall Vegetable Curry is tasty, too. Before I was not a curry fan, but I changed my mind. I have to try your recipes.

    Hope you can get your hands on some pumpkin puree, but in the meantime, I’m happy to see you post this curry recipe. I’m always looking for hearty things to make this time of year and this fits the bill perfectly.

    Love curry and the idea of only veggies. Great for the diet, I find myself eating heavier foods in the fall/winter.

    They put halloween candy on store displays in August, but you have to hunt for the pumpkin puree before November. What are they thinking? I’m on the hunt, too. Good luck!
