This is a great basic curry recipe. Using bought curry powder may be culinary heresy but, if you are new to making curries, it is a fast-track way to cooking them yourself. Use any combination of vegetables you like.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the curry

Quantity Ingredient
1 large red onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 courgette, sliced
1/2 small aubergine, finely chopped
1 tablespoon curry powder of your choice
1 tablespoon tomato puree
200g canned chopped tomatoes
2 handfuls baby spinach

For the quinoa

Quantity Ingredient
100g quinoa
large bunch coriander, roughly chopped
1/2 lime, juiced

Method

  1. Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil, with a good pinch of salt, until the onion begins to soften.
  2. Add the courgette and aubergine and continue to sauté for another five minutes, until the vegetables begin to soften.
  3. Add the curry powder, tomato purée and canned tomatoes and simmer gently for around 20 minutes. If you find the curry starting to look a little dry, add small splashes of water to top up the sauce. Remember, only in small amounts, and keep tasting to check the seasoning.
  4. At the last minute, add the baby spinach and keep stirring until it wilts.
  5. Meanwhile, simmer the quinoa in water for around 20 minutes, until the quinoa has enlarged, softened and what looks like little tails form at the sides. Drain. Mix with the coriander, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.

Note

  • Best for constipation.
