Deliveroo and Just Eat have made hay throughout lockdown with a surge in takeaway orders driven on the back of our love of takeaway favourites. But while we feel great while we’re eating them – they do significant damage to our bank balances.
The solution? Cook from home. Take it easy – nothing outrageous. We’ll start with the simple, tangy potato curry, Masaledar Aloo.
Preparation 35 minutes
- 250g potatoes, peeled and cut into 1cm dices
- 75g diced onions
- 150g chopped tomatoes
- 70g tikka masala paste
- 50g oil
- 8g chopped fresh coriander
- 20g yoghurt
Bring a pan of slightly salted water to the boil, add the potatoes and cook for 5 minutes or until they will take a fork. Drain and set aside.
Heat the oil and gently fry the onions for 5 minutes, until just golden.
Add the tikka masala paste and chopped tomatoes. Cook for 10 minutes on a medium heat. Then add the yoghurt and potatoes.
Adjust seasoning to taste and garnish with fresh chopped coriander before serving.
