Bali is perhaps one of the most vegan friendly places out there! Having spent a few months on the paradise island, I had no shortage of delicious vegan food & the Balinese curry stole the show!
Balinese curry is very similar to a lot of the curries found around South Asia in the likes of Thailand, that are distinctly recognisable for it’s strong lemongrass flavour. As much as I do love a Thai curry, the reason Balinese curry tops it for me, is the strong peanut flavour.
You can serve this curry over rice or alongside a flatbread, however I just love noodles and chunky veg with it! Making the sauce takes a bit of prep, but the beauty of this dish, is you can make a big batch of the sauce and refrigerate or freeze for next time!
You’ll need a blender for the sauce and a frying pan or wok for the rest. Put your rice or noodles on boil before hand to save some time.
