Mixed vegetable curry

Mixed vegetable curry

Save those veg from the bottom of the fridge and give them a new lease of life in this inventive curry which is as light as it is healthy. We’ve used madras curry paste (for added kick) – you can choose your favourite. Give it an authentic touch with basmati rice, too.

Recipe

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. Prepare the other vegetables when the potatoes are cooking.

  2. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes (until softened), stirring occasionally. Add the coconut and curry paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and cook until the mixture resembles a thick paste.

  3. Add all the vegetables except the spinach, salt and 150ml water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, then add the spinach. Cook for a further 5 minutes or until all the vegetables are just tender. Season and add the coriander sprigs just before serving.
