Chick pea and potato curry is a favourite with everyone. It is filling and tasty, a warming comfort food. It is easy to make and costs around £2 for a meal for four, and takes less than 30 minutes to put together.
Here is what you need:-
200g Rice – I use easy cook basmati rice 35p
Curry sauce – from Sainsburys basics range 9p
2-3 medium potatoes 50p
400g tin of chick peas 53p
chopped onion – 18p
frozen peas 30p
If you like your curry with a little more spice, just add some chilli, cumin or other spices to the sauce.
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.
Meanwhile chop the
potatoes into small cubes and place in a pan of boiling water. Cook
until soft – about 8-10 minutes.
Add the drained
chick peas to the pan along with the frozen peas and simmer for a
further five minutes.
