Vegan Falafel Curry

This easy falafel curry recipe is super easy to make and really tasty to eat, I’m sure it will soon be one of your favourite vegan/vegetarian recipes! It combines 2 of my favourite cuisines and it’s simply a wonderful fusion for an easy midweek dinner. 

I like to serve this vegan falafel curry alongside freshly cooked rice and top it with fresh coriander and sesame seeds for a little crunch. It’s perfect to use up some extra falafel leftovers and can also be made in combination with store-bought falafels.

How to make this Vegan Falafel Curry Recipe

Making your curry sauce

To start with, take a medium or large saucepan and add a splash of your rapeseed oil and put the pan on medium heat.  

Once the oil is nice and hot, add your tomato puree, coconut milk, salt, ginger and garam masala and stir all your ingredients together, then leave to cook for about 8-10 minutes. Next, transfer your sauce to a blender and blitz until smooth. 

Now that your curry sauce is nice and smooth, pour it back into the pan you were using before and add your falafels. Stir your curry gently for about 5 minutes and it should be done – I told you it was easy! 😉

Serving your Vegan Falafel Curry

All that’s left to do is serve your curry. I like to have mine over rice with a sprinkle of fresh coriander, but you can have yours however you like! 

Enjoy 😊

How to serve this vegan curry

As usual, I like to say one thing first: There’s no right or wrong way to serve anything. You go with your tastebuds! But if you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some delicious tried and tested ways to serve this delicious vegan curry that I particularly like: 

  • alongside coconut rice or plain cooked rice
  • topped with fresh coriander
  • alongside a dollop of coconut yogurt
  • with a sprinkle of seeds (e.g. sesame) on top for a little extra crunch
  • with a fresh naan on the side
  • in a flatbread alongside hummus or chickpeas and fresh coriander
  • with bakes potatoes, so delicious and worth trying!

Easy swaps for this recipe

There are a couple of things you can easily swap out in this falafel curry recipe, depending on what you have available at home or easy access to.


The curry base of this recipe is naturally gluten-free, so in order to make the entire recipe coeliac friendly, opt-in for a gluten-free falafel alternative, or simply check out this naturally gluten free falafel recipe from the blog. 


You can easily use ready-made store-bought falafels, e.g. Cauldron, in this recipe to save yourself having to make falafels from scratch. This recipe is also great for when you have too many falafels leftover from the day before and the perfect way to use up those leftovers!


I personally love the ginger and garam masala combination for this super simple curry, but if you have a curry powder at home that needs using up, or that you particularly love the flavour of, then go for it! Either add it to the other spices or replace the ginger and garam masala with about 2 tbsp of curry powder. 

Tomato Puree

I like to use tomato puree, aka tomato concentrate in this recipe – however, if you have run out, you can also use either passata (add 1/2 cup) or tinned chopped tomatoes (add 3/4 cup). In both cases there will be more liquid in the curry sauce, so cook the sauce a little longer on low heat in order for the sauce to thicken. 


Nothing better in a curry than the zing of fresh ginger! It’s a worthy addition to this recipe if you ask me – however if you have none to hand, simply add more ginger powder (add 1 tbsp) for the perfect zing, or replace it with a tablespoon of your favourite curry powder with a kick!
