Vegan Tikka Masala

Hey fellow health nuts!
I am a huge curry and indian food lover - I could eat it by the bucket load but I am regularly disappointed when getting take away or eating out at how oily and greasy the dishes taste.
I made this vegan tikka masala a couple of weeks ago and when I posted it on instagram I got a lot of requests to share the recipe so here we go :) It is so easy to make and everything is made from scratch.

What you need for the paste:

-3 garlic cloves crushed
-1 inch piece of fresh ginger
-2 small red chillies, deseeded and chopped
-2tsp cumin
-2tsp coriander
-1tsp paprika
-1tsp tumeric
-2tsp water or oil

Whizz up all the ingredients in a blender or crush together in a pestle and mortar until a paste is formed.

What you need for the curry:

- 2 onions
- Coconut oil
- 2 tbsp tikka masala paste
- 2 red peppers
-1/2 cup coconut yogurt
- Broccoli
- Cauliflower
- Spinach
- 2 tins of chopped tomatoes.


Chop up the onions and fry them in coconut oil until soft.
Add in the chopped peppers, broccoli and cauliflower, then stir in the tikka masala paste.
Keep stirring until all the vegetables are covered with the paste.
Add in the chopped tomatoes and let the mixture simmer for 10 minutes.
Stir in the coconut yogurt and spinach and leave for a further 5 minutes.
Season and add any extra spices to taste and then serve and enjoy :)
