Tuck into this mouthwatering potato curry recipe with its warming and spicy sauce perfect for eating up on a cold and rainy day. Tasty, simple to rustle up and ideal when you're cooking for a group. 

-

Parboil the potatoes for five minutes, then drain.

Blend together the garlic, ginger, onion and chillies then heat some oil in a deep saucepan and cook the mixture with the cumin, turmeric and a pinch of salt and pepper for about three minutes on a gentle heat. Add the curry powder and cook for one minute more.

Put the potatoes, tomato, water and lentils in the saucepan and bring to the boil. Season.

Cook for about fifteen minutes on a gentle boil until the water is well absorbed. Crush some of the potatoes to thicken the remaining liquid.

Add the spinach and chickpeas stir well and top with chopped coriander.

Meanwhile, prepare the cauliflower. Either grate it or blitz it in a food processor until it becomes a coarse crumb.

Transfer to a bowl and cover with cling film. Microwave for three minutes and serve with the curry.

Potato Yaki Udon Recipe

"I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, it’s such a winner! It’s so quick to throw together and so satisfying. I love using potatoes instead of noodles, it’s a really fun twist on the dish and a nice new way to use a simple ingredient. The flavours in this are so great too – the mix of sesame, ginger, chilli and coriander with spring onions, peppers, kale and mushrooms is just so delicious. Can’t wait to hear what you all think!"
