What’s A Bok Choy Curry?

I know Bok Choy – also known as Pak Choy – is not a typical Indian vegetable.

But when it’s in season, it makes a great source of calcium, protein, and fiber.

My favorite Indian curry recipe is usually a classic chicken tikka masala recipe, but today I asked my Indian friend to share her easiest vegetarian curry recipe, one that doesn’t need Indian curry paste.

So the recipe she shared was an Indian spinach dish. I chose to adapt the recipe and make it with Bok Choy – it’s in season – it cost me only $2 for two bunches of Bok Choy in an Asian supermarket.

How To Make This Bok Choy Curry Recipe

What I love the most about curry sauces is the creamy, smooth, and spicy taste – not necessarily the tick sauce – this one is not.

This Bok Choy Curry definitely ticks all the boxes with an extra acid flavor of lemon that perfectly balances the chili.


  • Bok Choy – Bok Choy is a delicious leafy vegetable. Prepare it by washing the leaves and removing the stem before roughly chopping it on.
  • Unsweetened Coconut Milk or full-fat coconut cream to add creaminess to the curry.
  • Vegetable Stock
  • Coconut Oil or olive oil.
  • Onion peeled and finely diced.
  • Garlic Cloves peeled and finely chopped.
  • Curry Powder
  • Ground Turmeric
  • Ground Fenugreek
  • Fresh Grated Ginger

  • Add the roughly chopped Bok Choy and toss with tongs until it wilts, then cover it with a lid and reduce to medium/low heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes.  
  • Uncover and cook for 3 – 4 minutes on high/medium heat to evaporate the vegetable juice slightly. 
  • Stir in coconut milk and vegetable stock and continue cooking for 10 more minutes until the thick liquid reduces.
  • Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice, chili flakes, and fresh coriander. 
  • Serve 2 people, serve each portion with some Cauliflower Rice or 200g (7oz) of konjac noodles (this adds about 1g net carb to the meal)

  1. 5 stars
    This is my new favorite dish!!! I made it exactly as written but added salt and served over jasmine rice. Thankfully my boyfriend and nephew had already eaten so I had it all to myself – and I ate the whole darn thing!!! For the chili flakes I used Gochugaru (Korean red chili flakes) and it added the perfect amount of kick. Thanks for sharing such a tasty recipe – I have it bookmarked and am spreading the word! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!!

    Super easy and delicious! Didn’t have fenugreek so used mustard powder. Still wonderful. Will definitely make again!

    • The recipe use vegetable stock which is already salted. So then it is up to you to add more salt based on your taste. Enjoy, XOXO Carine
