Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the curry paste and fry for 1 min. Add the sugar and lemon juice, cook for 1 min, then tip in the courgettes and cauliflower and cook for 2 mins. Now stir in the passata, plus 100ml/3½fl oz water and the chickpeas, season to taste. Bring to the boil, cover with a lid and simmer for 15 mins. Make up to this stage and freeze or keep chilled for 2 days in the fridge. Warm through, once defrosted if frozen, and continue with the recipe.
  2. Just before serving, throw in the spinach, give it a stir and remove from the heat once the leaves have just wilted. Serve with boiled basmati rice.

I love it, though I do use Madras paste instead of vindaloo.

First dish I've done and not given 5 stars. For me the taste wasn't there, rather dull. Won't be doing again. :0(

tried cutting and pasting the ingredients and recipe instructions into word? I do this and print it out in b/w.

Hi Guys,

It would be great to have a simple momochrome recipe print rather that a print of the entire screen as this might save people time and money. I don't know about others but all I need is cler instructions rather than pictures!

Keep up the good work

Cheers

Kieran

This was really easy lovely stuff, I absolutely love the hot tanginess of the sauce. I changed it slightly by adding mushrooms and red peppers, and I used broccoli instead of cauliflower. I also added a tin of chopped tomatoes instead of the passata, and also made my own vindaloo sauce. To lower the GI rating I used a tbsp of Agarve syrup instead of the brown sugar. Really recommend this and would definately make again!

this is a fantastic way to use up any vegetables that you happen to have.

Very easy to make. I used frozen spinach which worked fine.

fed a big crowd on bonfire night, went down a storm! add plenty of lemon to give it the perfect sourness

On browsing your website this recipe in particular caught my eye, maybe it was due to not knowing what passata was, however i decided to attempt the recipe regardless. I thought I would add my own special touch to the curry by including some onions, fried to a light shade of golden brown and added with the cauliflower. The preperation in my opinion did not challenge me as an aspiring chef however, I must confess I did shed a tear whilst finely chopping the onions. I did feel that having a glass of Chardonnay most deffinatly aided the dish, and was complemented nicely with just a few poppadums and some mango chutney, homemade of course. All in all i believe that the dish was a success and I am confident that I would cook it again, the prepartion was definatly a doddle, or a 'piece of naan' if u like (did you get that...ye..nice one).
Take care

One of my more successful dishes. Very easy and quick and I'm sure alternative vegetable could be used.

I'm not that great a cook but I found this nice and easy. Turned out to be absolutely delicious - my flatmates were impressed. As a student as well it's quite good to freeze then microwave when I need a quick meal later in the week. I served it up with some rice too.
