World’s Best Vegan Red Curry Chili
Hello fit foodies! Do you also believe that the discoveries of the best recipes are through fusion? This means, to make one amazing dish, there is an incorporation of tastes and styles of different cuisines, which is even better when you include your favorites as well!
Chili and curry are two of mine! How about you? This recipe I’m sharing with you is not just any typical curry, but the world’s best vegan red curry chili! It is perfect even for those on their special diets!
Curry is a variety of dishes that comes from the Indian subcontinent. It uses multiple combinations of spices and herbs. It commonly includes ground turmeric, ginger, coriander, and fresh or dried chilies.
Some use curry powder in their curry chili recipes. It is a pre-compounded mixture of the commonly used seasonings in a curry dish.
This curried chili is very easy to make and adjust according to your special diet needs. You can add whatever spices to make this more delicious. You can also include coconut milk like I did to make this coconut curry, for a more satisfying meal.
If you want this to have a higher content of protein, you can include pieces of chicken or even ground beef, but if you want it to be purely vegan, you can add veggies like diced potatoes or even slices of fresh ripe mangoes. Then, you can serve it with flatbread or tortillas to make it more filling.

- 2/3 cup diced red onion
- 4 tablespoons red curry paste
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the 4 burger patties and cook on both sides for 3 minutes each, careful not to burn them. Chop them up in the skillet using a spatula and cook for an additional 1 – 2 minutes. Set the chopped patties in a bowl and place the skillet back on the heat.
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, garlic and red onion. Cook until the red onion turns brown and translucent and be careful NOT to burn the garlic.
Add red curry, chili powder and smoked paprika. Cook for about 2 minutes until it is very fragrant.
Add the chickpeas and stir it up for 2 minutes.
