Store cupboard curry

I always keep certain things in my store cupboard as I’m sure you do too- so when I’ve not had a chance to get to the supermarket I can delve in and create something unique from whatever I’ve got in! This day I opted for a curry which turned out great (to my tastes anyway- hubby wasn’t impressed by the lack of meat in it!!)

You can use this base and add whatever veg you have left in the house. I had sweet potato and courgette so that’s what I used!

Ingredients-

Potato

Sweet potato

Courgette

Onion

Chickpeas

Butter beans

Sweetcorn

Tinned tomatoes

Coconut milk

Cashew nuts

Coriander
Spices:

Garam Masala

Cumin

Ground coriander

Tumeric

Mustard seeds

Mild chilli powder

Cube the veg

Parboil it for 5mins

Dice the onions and cook on a medium heat in a tablespoon of vegetable oil

Add your spices to your taste. I used around a teaspoon of each one. Cook in the oil and mix with the onions for at least a minute to release the flavour.

Add the chickpeas (half the tin) and butter beans (half the tin) and fry for a minute

Drain your veg and add to the pan

Add the tinned tomatoes and tin of coconut milk. If I did this combination again I’d probably only use half a tin of coconut oil and top with a touch of water so it didn’t go too sweet.

Finally throw in the sweetcorn (half a tin), some salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer then leave it simmering for around 15-20mins to reduce down.

Finally I remembered I had some frozen coriander so I chopped that and added it in along with a handful of cashew nuts and cooked for another couple of minutes.


Serve with rice and enjoy!
