Can be cooked in a slow cooker if on site with leccy..Just leave off the tinfoil ..

This recipe is for a hob top cooker I combine my curry spices in one bag .. if away for 4 month that may be 6 curries ..don’t want to have too good a time

The mix is ..

1tsp Ground coriander

2tsp ground cumin

1tsp Garam masala

1tsp turmeric

1tsp ground chilli powder ( or to your taste )

1tsp garlic powder

2tsp Paprika

4tsp Methi leaf

This mix is for one curry ..for more X by the number of meals you think you will have ..but remember if you have a big bag of spices how many tsps to add to the pot

.. This mix is 13 tsps ..I write on the bag how many to add ..e.g : If I’ve bagged up enough for 6 meals I write 13 on the bag of spices ..remember there will be 78 tsps in the bag and very easy to forget .. Always remembering how many tsp make one curry if all the spices are in ONE bag Recipe


1 onion Sliced into small bits

2tbs sunflower oil

Fry onions till golden in oil

Add your spice mix to a small amount of water ..make a paste

Turn your gas ring to medium

Add the spice paste to the onions and oil and fry for 5 mins stirring ..if it drys out to much add a tiny bit of water

After 5 mins add a little more water and a chicken stock cube ..I use Knorr ..

Add 1 tbs tomato ketchup and 1 tbs tomato purée

Add a drop more water and keep it moist ..

Add cooked meats (chicken ) or veg I throw in a tin of chick peas and let it simmer for 30 mins with lid of tinfoil to keep moisture in ..

DONT let it stick

Season to taste Serve with rice ..I use boiling the bag ..saves on washing up

Add a dollop of plain yogurt to top it off ..yummy
