Oooh ooh littlerach, I've been looking for a potato/aubergine curry recipe. Would it be too much to ask you to post it?

littlerach Sun 19-Aug-07 18:07:52

It's not a real recipe!! Something I invented.
Erm, I use the Pataks Balti paste (cheat!).

Chop an aubergine, a courgette and a pepper and roast for about 30 mins. I sometime sinclude tomatoes.

Parboil about 2 medium potatoes then drain.

Put a couple of dessert spoons of the paste in a hot pan and let it sizzle for a minute or so.

Add a tin of tomatoes and about 150mls water.

Add the veg and potatoes.

Simmer for about 20 mins or until potatoes are cooked.


Apologies if this sin't very accurate, I don't tend to pay attetiom to quantities.

I think I have also made this as a Tikke Masala and added yoghurt at the end.

I'm sure you'd get better quantities if you googled it

We got our first riverford meat box this week. Although we got the small one, thats meant to last for two weeks for 2 people, we think it will easily do 3 of us 3 weeks. It arrived friday.

So..
Friday we had tacos with half the mince (froze the rest)
Saturday - pork stroganoff type thing with the sour cream left over from friday and half the pork cubes.
Sunday - a ginormous roast chicken. veg, roast pots and apple and raspberry crumble.
Monday - chicken noodle soup, bread and left over crumble.
Tuesday, left over chicken, mash and veg
Wednesday - pasta with tomatoey sauce. (need a meat break!)
Thursday - salmon (was half price) and ???
Friday - chicken curry (sunday leftovers from freezer) or stirfry

and so on.
