Ingredients (serves 4)

800g mixed vegetables (carrots, cauliflower, potato, courgette), chopped

200g frozen peas 200ml yogurt

300-500ml hot vegetable stock

1 onion, finely chopped

3 cardamom pods, bashed

½ tsp ground turmeric

2 tsp coriander (cilantro)

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 tsp ground cumin

1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

Thumb-sized piece ginger, finely chopped

1 tbsp vegetable oil

2 chopped tomatoes (optional)

2 tbsp ground almonds (optional)

 

 

To serve: toasted flake almonds, chopped coriander, basmati rice or naan bread

 

Method

Heat the oil in a large pan. Put the onion and the dry spices into the pan and cook over a low heat for 5-6 mins until the onion is light golden.

Add the chilli, garlic and ginger to the pan and cook for 1 min.

Put the mixed chopped vegetables and cook for a further 5 mins. (If you are using chicken, chop it into small chunks and put it into the pan).

Add the stock and simmer for 10 mins (use 300ml if cooking the veggie version, 500ml if adding the chicken).

Add the peas and the chopped tomatoes (if using) and cook for a further 3 mins until the vegetables are tender (and the chicken is cooked through).

Remove from the heat and stir in the yogurt and ground almonds (if desired).

Serve, sprinkled with the toasted almonds and coriander, with basmati rice or naan bread on the side.
