1kg new potatoes

Vegetable oil for frying

Red onion finely sliced

250g bag of fresh spinach, roughly chopped, if preferred or leave as is for speed

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1.5 tbsp medium, curry powder

1tsp black onion seeds (plus a little extra to sprinkle over the top)

400g tin chopped tomatoes

500ml vegetable stock


1. Cut the potatoes in half (thirds for bigger potatoes) and place in a saucepan of cold, salted water.

2. Bring the water to the boil and when bubbling, simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.

3. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large deep frying pan. Add the red onion and fry for 5 minutes on a medium heat until soft.

4. Add the spinach and stir for 2 minutes until wilted.

5. Stir in the garlic, curry powder and black onion seeds and fry for 1 minute.

6. Drain the liquid from the tinned tomatoes in a colander. Discard the juice and add the tomatoes to the pan.

7. Stir in the drained potatoes, stock and season with salt and pepper.

8. Simmer on a medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring regularly until the stock has reduced and thickened. Don't worry if the potatoes break up a little, it will help them to absorb some of the flavour of the sauce.

9. Serve on a bed of rice and sprinkle with a few black onion seeds
