Vegetable Curry For A Crowd

Super easy, budget-friendly and extremely tasty! 

 

I am always looking for new recipes to try on my family, especially ones that will help me get more veggies into everyone’s diet! 

During the Christmas break at a family get together this dish was one of many dishes available, it has to be one of the nicest creamiest curries that I have ever tried. 

Needless to say, I had to give it a go! This recipe makes up 8 portions which make’s it perfect for batch cooking, chucking it in the freezer for a later date when you simply don’t have enough time cook.

I found it easy to cook and it took me roughly 15 minutes to prepare everything,  and around 45 minutes to cook. 

Ingredients

  • 1 Large potato ( diced) 
  • 1 Small butternut squash ( peeled, deseeded, and diced) 
  • 1 Aubergine (diced)
  • 6tbsp Tikka masala paste
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil 
  • 2 onions( sliced) 
  •  680-700g Jar tomato passata
  • 400g Coconut milk
  • 2 Red peppers (sliced)
  • 2 Courgettes ( diced) 
  • To serve – A few sprigs of coriander, rice or naan. 

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180c fan/gas in a large roasting dish add the diced potato aubergine and butternut squash toss with  2tbsp oil and 2 tbsp of tikka curry paste to season the vegetables, you need to roast these for 30 minutes.

 

2. In the meantime, make up the curry sauce. In a large pan fry the onions in 1 tbsp of oil until they are softened and golden, you can add a splash of water should they start to dry out. Add the remaining 4 tbsp of curry paste and cook for 3 minutes, add the tomato passata, coconut milk along with 100ml of water. Simmer for a few minutes.

 

3. Next, when the vegetables have roasted, tip them into the curry sauce along with the sliced peppers and diced courgettes. you will need to simmer for a further 10-15 until all the vegetables are tender.  scatter with the fresh coriander and serve. 

This recipe went down a treat in our house this week and I’m happy I have a few meals in the freezer! #winning
