A Spicy Vegan Curry for Your Lunch Box!

I like to make a spicy fenugreek and vegetable curry as a to-go meal that works well in a lunch box. One of the reasons this dish packs well is that the flavors are wonderful even at room temperature.

When cooking with fresh fenugreek leaves, you need to be careful because they tend to be a little bitter when combined with water. Once you wash the leaves, pat them dry and do not add any water to the curry. This way, you will not notice any bitterness from the fenugreek in the final dish.

Now, let me share the recipe with you.
