Prep Time: 30 mins
I’m always searching for something new and exciting to mix up my lunch and dinner food regime, which is when I discovered this little gem. I love the traditional Indian side dish of Sag aloo so I thought why not try and make it into a scrummy healthy main, which I did, and it’s totally delicious. I actually surprised myself, and most importantly my flatmates with how good this is. Apart from the fact that your house may smell slightly like a curry factory afterwards, there is nothing bad about this dish. If you’ve got a hungry boy in your house you may wish to substitute chicken for the potato. So I fried the potatoes and chicken separately and then once I’d made the sauce I split it in two and added half to the chicken and half to the potatoes. Voila, happy boys and girls. You can also have fun going to town on the condiments and extras: naan bread or brown rice go really well, and sprinkle over fresh coriander, a dollop of low fat natural yoghurt and then the chutneysssss. Also I don’t think this cost more then about a tenner and there were plenty of leftovers to take into work for lunch the next day. So you can also be THAT person – the smarty pants who brought in a premade, super healthy, low fat, vegan lunch.
I won’t bore you with too many nutritional facts but needless to say vegetables = good, and this is all vegetables, plus the super wonder spice turmeric is in there so its definitely a health winner.
