  • 1/3 oz Ginger, minced
  • 1 3/4 lbs Potatoes, peeled and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 2 (14oz) tins Chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp Garam masala
  • 2 tbsp Masala paste
  • 1 (14oz) tin Chopped tomatoes

  • 17 3/5 fl oz Vegetable stock
  • Sea salt

Ingredient Notes

  • Spinach can be added a few minutes before the curry has finished simmering, which will add extra vitamins and irons.
  • This recipe is also great to reheat as it gives the sauce extra time to marinade and soak into the potatoes


  1. In a large sautépan over a medium heat sauté the onions for 5 minutes, until softened.  Add the garlic and ginger and then sauté for a further minute. Add garam masala and once you can start to smell the spices add your potatoes and chickpeas and mix together. 
  2. Next stir though your masala paste and then add your veg stock and tomatoes. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 45 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked. You may need to add a little water as you go if the curry becomes too thick.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and serve fresh from the pan with basmati rice or indian breads.
