I love Indian food, and I really love the vegetable curries. As a vegetarian, Indian food are really a perfect way for me to get all the nutrients that I need, and I love the way the Indian cuisine combines its spices. It is almost as if these spices reaches a completely different level, when they are combined in the Indian way. I know that the curries and the masala is different depending on the region you come from. Would any of you share your favorite vegetable curry recipe with me? I have tried, and tried, but I haven't found one that I really love. I love it, when it is a bit spicy. Thank you in advance.
