As a student, I love reading blogs with student advice and tips, and recipes are always greatly appreciated! I had a go at making my own curry back at home and since making it I’ve found it incredibly easy and cheap and only uses one pan, which is always great in a house of 4 girls who hate washing up!

I used 1 can of chopped tomatoes, 1 can of chickpeas, 1 can of coconut milk, 1 red onion, a pack of butternut squash and sweet potato (you can add or substitute for any kind of meat or vegetables you prefer). I also added a touch of garlic, black pepper, curry powder and cinnamon.

First I fried the onion in a bit of oil, added the herbs and spices before adding the drained (and washed) chickpeas and fried for a few minutes. 

Then I added the chopped tomatoes and cooked for a few minutes again.

Then I added the coconut milk and then added the sweet potato and butternut squash (ready washed and chopped) until I could easily stick a fork into the potato/squash.

Then just cook a bit of rice or potato and serve!

Yum, this isn’t really a hot curry, If you prefer the spicy kind you could probably add more curry powder or chillis or something.

Anyone else ever cooked curry from scratch?

    Good tip, thanks! I'm always apprehensive of adding too much chilli/curry powder but I should start to experiment more with it!

Carry on the conversation, I'd love to know your thoughts
