About the Recipe


  • 2 tbsp oil

  • 2 onions, chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced

  • Thumb-sized piece of fresh root ginger, finely chopped

  • 3 tbsp medium curry paste, or Balti curry paste

  • 1 tbsp tomato purée

  • 3 large potato’s

  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes

  • 1 chicken stock pot or 2 chicken stock cubes (or veg stock)

  • 200 g baby spinach leaves (2 big handfuls), finely chopped

Wholemeal Chapatis

  • 140g wholemeal flour

  • 140g plain flour, plus extra for dusting

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing

  • 180ml hot water or as needed


1 cucumber, deseeded and grated

1 red onion, finely chopped

A handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped

1 large tub of natural yoghurt


Heat the oil in a large saucepan and gently sweat the onions, garlic and ginger – be

careful not to let the onions burn!

After 5-7 minutes – when the onions are soft – add the curry paste and the potato

and stir for a couple of minutes.

Add the tin of tomatoes, the stock, the tomato puree and ½ empty tomato tin full of

water, bring to a simmer and cook with the lid on for 10 minutes.

Wholemeal Chapatis

In a large bowl, stir together the flours and salt. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the

olive oil and enough water to make a soft dough that is elastic but not sticky.

Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5-10 mins until it is smooth. Divide

into 10 pieces, or less if you want bigger breads. Roll each piece into a ball. Let rest

for a few mins.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat until hot, and grease lightly. On a lightly

floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out the balls of dough until very thin

like a tortilla.

When the pan starts smoking, put a chapati on it. Cook until the underside has

brown spots, about 30 seconds, then flip and cook on the other side. Put on a plate

and keep warm while you cook the rest of the chapatis.


Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl
