Warming Indian Stew

As the nights are drawing in earlier and earlier I find myself wanting easy, comforting but still delicious dinners. It's also always nice when they don't cost a fortune!

This is how my Warming Indian Stew was born...

The team at PaymentSense did some research and found that 'payday diets' are very much a thing, with people changing their eating habits as they come up towards their next payday.

Whether you're waiting on your next pay check, feeling the Christmas present buying hitting you hard or just want a really delicious, very cheap but also super healthy meal this is the thing for you.

Warming Indian Stew Recipe

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees centigrade and cut three carrots, three stalks of celery, one red onion peeled and cut in to quarters and two large sweet potatoes into chunks and mix together in a bowl with three tbsp of olive oil. Scatter in 1 tsp garam masala, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp ground turmeric and 1/2 tsp chilli flakes and coat the vegetables with the aromatic spice mix.

Transfer the veg to a roasting tray and roast for around 40 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked through and just starting to colour on the edges. Pop 200g frozen peas in to the tray for 5 minutes before you take the tray out.

Scoop out the onion and a third of the spice vegetable mix and whiz it up in a blender with 200ml water. Put the blended mixture into a small saucepan and stir in the rest of the roasted vegetables. Serve with basmati rice or naan and a blob of natural yogurt. Sprinkle over come chopped coriander and enjoy!

This meal costs less than £1 a portion and would be delicious with some roasted chicken thighs for some added protein.
