saag aloo recipe! Very nice…

Saag Aloo

Makes 12 servings

1 kg potatoes, – 29p, chop into ½ inch dice
1 large 575g tin spinach- 77p, drained, keep the liquid
500g chopped onions- 40p
Dessertspoon Cumin,
3 cloves garlic, 6p, chopped, crushed or grated
½ teaspoon chilli,
fresh coriander, 5p, I used a tenth of a 50p bunch
100ml veg oil – 9p

Start with a large pan, you’re going to make 12 portions of curry! Fry cumin and garlic and chilli in oil for a minute, then add the onions til coated and translucent, a few mins. Stir the cubes of potato in until coated, then add the spinach. Reduce heat, and simmer until the potato has cooked through, testing with a knife every 5 mins ish. When the curry gets too dry, add some of the reserved spinach liquid.

14p per serving, with 60g of rice and a HM naan bread, that’s your whole evening meal for 20p! Each portion contains 2 portions of your ‘5 a day’.

Happy chomping,

Love Weezl x
