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 was looking for a veggie curry as an alternative to the usual chicken of fish ones I do. I used madras paste as I didn't have vindaloo but, like one of the other users, I found it a bit bland. I added some coriander which helped a little but won't try this one again.

I have just cooked this because I need a veggie option for a party. Love it! Easy, tasty, not too much time-consuming chopping involved. Going to freeze, so I haven't added spinach yet. Used 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
