Easy Vegan Dinner Recipes: Microwave Malai Kofta

Trying to avoid getting another takeaway curry and looking for some vegan dinner recipes? You’ve come to the right place!

Growing up, my absolute favourite Indian meal was malai kofta. Sadly, though, I became vegan and it contains cream! I also used to make it at home for my family but, unfortunately, it takes forever and cleanup was a bit of a nightmare as well.

Basically, this curry is super easy, healthy, and perfect for a night where you’re feeling a bit lazy about cooking but don’t want to spend more money eating out!
