Tap For Ingredients


  1. Deseed the chillies and peel the onions, then finely chop both.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the mustard seeds and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they start to pop.
  3. Add the chillies, curry leaves, onions, coriander, cumin seeds, garam masala, turmeric, and chilli powder to the pan, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the onions are soft.
  4. Meanwhile, roughly chop the tomatoes, and peel and cube the sweet potatoes, regular potatoes and aubergine.
  5. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, potatoes and aubergine, then pour in the coconut milk and cook until the potato is tender, stirring occasionally.
  6. Slice the okra and trim the beans, then add to the pan with the peas for a further few minutes, until tender, but still with a bit of bite.
  7. Taste and season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper, then serve with some fluffy rice.


Curry leaves freeze really well. Pop them in a plastic bag then use them straight from the freezer.
