Many Parsis will tell you that vegetables belong in the garden, not on a plate, but we grew up eating plenty of salad and vegetables with every meal. What I wanted to do was create a curry with flavour that would complement a range of vegetables that didn't require meat of any kind.
This Parsi Vegetable Curry is a tasty curry which you can pack full of your favourite vegetables. Usually when we make it we use a combination of courgette, cauliflower, peas, sweetcorn and potato, but you can use whatever you prefer.
