You get wonderful spices and a creamy yogurt that works beautifully with the tomato and onion-based sauce.

If you loved tikka masala before going vegan, or are looking for more plant-based options, you can’t go wrong with this curry! 

Make sure the vegan yogurt you purchase is thick, otherwise the consistency of your curry will be off. It doesn’t impact the taste, but if you want a thick sauce, you will need a thick yogurt!

You will also want to pay attention to the quantities of spices. Make sure you measure them out correctly to avoid adding too much or too little flavor! 

2. Vegan Tandoori Tofu Tikka Masala

Next, we have this delicious vegan tandoori tofu tikka masala. This recipe uses deep-fried tofu pillows which adds a wonderful texture to the curry.

It also changes the texture of tofu and removes the chewy texture tofu sometimes has. 

Make sure you grind the spices too, as this helps to release the flavor. We found a coffee grinder works just as well as a pestle and mortar.

Plus, it’s a lot quicker too! The tandoori tofu is full of flavor and works beautifully in the masala sauce. It adds an extra layer of flavor that you won’t want to be without!
