To Make Sauce:

  • Use a medium sized pot.
  • Place olive oil, onion, garlic, ginger and spices in the saucepan on a low heat.
  • Gently saute until onions have softened. Ensure ingredients do not stick to end of pan. Add more oil if necessary.
  • Add stock cube.
  • Add tomatoes and cook for a further 15 minutes.
  • Finally add the coconut milk and continue to cook on a low heat but don’t allow to boil.
  • Remove from heat and blend if preferred. Taste and add more spices or season if necessary.
  • Return curry base to a clean saucepan and add in peppers along with sweet potatoes.
  • Add chick peas, lentils and cauliflower florets.
  • Finally, chopped coriander.
  • Try not to allow the vegetables to overcook.

Any preferred vegetable may be added to the recipe or chicken if you wish.

You may add 3 diced chicken fillets to your curry sauce if you wish. This will need to go in before the vegetables. Ensure the chicken is fully cooked before you serve.

To Serve:

Serve on a bed of brown rice or any other rice will be fine.

Add a cup of quinoa to your rice for extra goodness and protein.

This curry may be portioned and then frozen.
