Curry Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1 salad onion, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 thumb ginger, finely grated
  • 400 grams tin tomato passata
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • Sea salt to taste
Curry Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons Azada Olive Oil & Chilli
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon madras curry powder
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 carrot, trimmed, peeled and sliced
  • ½ cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 cup peas
  • 3 handfuls of baby spinach leaves
  • 400 grams tin chickpeas, drained
  • ¼ cup flaked almonds and coconut shavings, lightly toasted
  • A generous handful of fresh coriander leaves

Put the ginger, tomatoes and paste, garlic, and salt in a small food processor and blitz to create a smooth paste. Heat Azada’s Olive Oil & Chilli in a large heavy-based casserole dish and cook the mustard seeds until they begin to pop. Add the onions and cook for 10 minutes until translucent. Next, add the tomato paste and puree and cook over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Add the spices and coconut milk and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to a slow simmer and add the sweet potato, carrot and cauliflower. Cover and cook for 20 minutes over medium heat. Remove the lid, add the peas, spinach and chickpeas, and cook for a further 10 minutes. Add a sprinkling of toasted almonds, coconut shavings and a handful of freshly torn coriander.

You can also substitute the cauliflower for butternut squash if you fancy a touch of autumn.
