An Indian feast wouldn’t be complete without this tasty and healthy main or side.

Vegan, gluten and dairy free this healthy side or main dish is packed with spinach and a whole host of aromatic spices, it’s easy to prep and a doddle to make.

250g bag spinach

½ a large chopped brown onion

1 red chilli, finely chopped

2 tsp cumin

2 tsp black mustard seeds

1 onion, finely sliced

3 fat garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp ginger paste

2 tbsp tomato purée

1 large chopped tomato

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp hot chilli powder

1 tsp turmeric

Here’s how…….

Peel and chop potatoes into oxo cube sized pieces. Then par boil in salted water.

Drain and allow stem to evaporate.

Heat veg oil in a saucepan fry onion then add garlic and ginger, spices, chilli, mustard seeds and tomato purée. Cook for a couple of minutes, then add chopped tomato.

Add potatoes and ½ cupful of boiling water. Cook for a further 5 minutes. Your potatoes should be cooked through.

I didn’t realise it was vegan, just goes to show how easy it is to vary your diet and still get lots of flavour in it 😋
