Can curry be Vegan?

Of course, vegans can eat anything we wish without putting in dairy and any other animal products.
It is still tasty and it is great for you if you are an adventurous eater.

You can combine one ingredient with others to create a new recipe.
It is the same thing with vegan curry.

This yellowish and rich in flavor sauce is identical to chicken curry.
But as vegan, we will still taste delicious meals without even putting the artificial vegan chicken in them.

In fact, the Asian people are ahead to create any vegan dishes including this curry.
The Asian style curry, including Indian, Indonesian, and Thailand curry is the first inspiration that I got to make this recipe, I know it is possible to cook vegan curry without putting chicken or other animal product in it.
