Easy chicken jalfrezi

I love making curry at home, it's a great way to get in lots of portions of veggies and I never tire of it if there are leftovers! The only thing that I find with a lot of the curry recipes out there is that there are a lot of steps, making pastes, and more often than not a lot of oil. I still think that you can make a really delicious curry at home which doesn't need to involve a lot of faffing, and really cuts out that oil to keep it light and healthy. Chicken jalfrezi is one of those ...

Healthy (ish) butter chicken

Butter chicken is one of the nation's favourites, and for good reason! I know that you CAN make something that LOOKS like butter chicken and has a very lean sauce using fat-free yoghurt or something similar, but for me, butter chicken is one of those dishes that I can't compromise on. I think butter chicken needs butter, and cream and you can still make a healthier than normal version, that tastes amazing without having to compromise on those essential base flavours. There are lots of ...

Easy chana masala (chickpea curry)

Chana masala is a classic Indian side dish- it's spicy, hearty and warming and this version is also super easy to make and bulked out with extra lentils to make it more than just a side dish. I served this up as part of a big curry feast that I cooked for a group of 16 friends- there's very little work involved in pulling this together, and it's one that you can cook in advance and just reheat when you need it (in fact I think this gives time for the flavours to develop and makes it taste ...

Black bean, butternut squash & coconut curry

Curry is a fantastic meal to make if you are feeding a big group- you can prepare it in advance (in fact it often tastes even nicer if it's had a bit of time to 'brew' and is reheated), it's easy to scale up to feed the right number of people, and it freezes really well if you have lots of leftovers. It's also a great way to get in portions of healthy vegetables and pulses without even trying! I came up with this curry for a girls night in with a big group of friends- I needed to feed 16 ...

Slow-cooker sweet potato, lentil and coconut curry

This is a fantastic easy curry to make which requires little effort and cooks away beautifully on its own in the slow cooker. It's very easy to scale up if you need to make a big batch for a group of friends or family, and you can add in any extra veg you fancy- butternut squash, cauliflower, extra peppers all work well! Coconut milk really adds something extra special to a vegetarian curry, and although in Slimming World it is quite high in syns, even using light coconut milk, by the time ...

Sweet potato and coconut curry

Approaching a long-awaited winter break in the Lake District with a group of friends that I hadn't seen for 2 years, I had offered to cook on the Saturday night, and knew that I needed something that was both vegetarian (my friend Feebs was trialling a vegetarian month), and didn't involve a huge amount of concentration (as there was likely to be a lot of nattering!). I have made a sweet potato and lentil curry before, but this time I wanted to have a slightly more indulgent version with the ...

Slow-cooker tandoori beef masala

Why slow-cooked? The slow-cooker is fantastic for a curry- it gives plenty of time for the flavours of the spices to develop, and for meat like beef and lamb, it ensures that you have tender, fall apart meat with not a chewy bit in sight! I also love the slow-cooker because it's hands off cooking- this meal just takes about 7-8 minutes to do, including chopping and frying, then once it's in the slow-cooker you can just leave it and get on with your day! This slow-cooker tandoori ...

Vegan mushroom, chickpea and green lentil curry

This curry was inspired by one that my sister-in-law cooked when I was staying with her up in London- why had I never thought of combining chickpeas and lentils into one dish? I always find chickpea curries a bit too much without anything to break up the chickpeas, but mixed with lentils they just add a fantastic consistency and bulk. My brother and sister-in-law have been so lovely about having my husband and I to stay over the past few years- when we left London for Devon we envisaged ...

Healthy Beef Madras

I was always a fussy eater as a kid- I wouldn't touch any fruit and would only tolerate certain vegetables. when I was about 12, my Mum made a discovery, which was that I would eat pretty much any vegetables if they were in curry! Although adulthood (and travelling the world) made me much less fussy, and I love a lot of the foods I wouldn't eat as a child, I still love a good curry! One of my dreams is to go to India for a cookery course and culinary tour. I've never been to India, but ...

Iceland Slimming World curry buffet for Curry Week!

I love a curry buffet, I always find it so hard to commit to one type of curry (because I want them all!), so I love being able to pile up my plate with lots of different varieties. Doing a homemade curry buffet, however, is a labour of love because each individual dish is like making a meal in itself, and unfortunately it's just not something that I have time for in my life! Equally, I don't have a decent Indian takeaway near me, and both the cost, and the high fat content would put me off ...
