Curry sauce – from Sainsburys basics range 9p

2-3 medium potatoes 50p

400g tin of chick peas 53p

If you like your curry with a little more spice, just add some chilli, cumin or other spices to the sauce.

  1. First place the
    rice in a pan and cover with boiling water. Simmer for about 15
    minutes until water is absorbed and rice is soft.

  2. Meanwhile chop the
    potatoes into small cubes and place in a pan of boiling water. Cook
    until soft – about 8-10 minutes.
