My easy Quorn curry is the perfect mid-week meal. Quorn pieces are cooked in a creamy, mild vegan korma sauce, making it just right for all the family. Delicious with rice, naan breads or both.
A Quorn curry is always a real family favourite. It’s quick to make and served with a mild vegan korma sauce, meaning that it’s a great mid-week meat free meal. Serve with rice, naan and raita.
Curry is great for babies and kids
My kids have always enjoyed curry. We’ve had so many battles with picky eating over the years but curry has always been accepted.
I think that this is partly because we always gave curry to our babies when they were weaning.
And I think it’s also because we both love curry so much that we eat it at least once or twice a week.
The kids do have their favourites though. Red lentil dal is one of them. Served with breads to dip in it’s long been one of our go-to meals.
Potato curry is another. Our eldest still isn’t keen on vegetables but he does love potatoes. I often include them with other vegetables in a mixed veg curry.
Now we have another family favourite – this Quorn curry.
What is Quorn?
Quorn is a meat substitute. It comes in several varieties, including mince, sausages and chicken-style pieces.
It is made from mycoprotein, a type of fungus.
Not all Quorn products are vegan – although the whole range is suitable for vegetarians. If you are vegan you will need to look out for the Quorn vegan range.

How difficult is Quorn curry to make?
I’ve used a shop-bought korma paste in this recipe to make it really simple. Although I do enjoy making my own curry pastes and spice mixes a ready-made curry paste can be a life-saver for a quick midweek meal.
This recipe requires no technical skills. There’s a little chopping and frying involved of course but it’s a very easy recipe to make.
What should you serve with this vegan “chicken” korma?
We almost always serve our curries with some kind of bread. This makes the kids happy. Our youngest, S who is 5, always prefers to eat his curry wrapped up. Yep, even dal!
Rice is also good. We all prefer basmati rice, although I often make brown rice for a more nutritious meal. For the rice in these photos I added 1/2 tsp turmeric to the rice while it was cooking to make yellow rice.
Raita is also lovely on the side or you could make a vegetable pickle or some other curries for the side.
