A cheats version of Jamies favorite curry sauce

Michelle

A cheats version of Jamies favorite curry sauce: I adore this Jamie Oliver curry & make it all of the time but have over the years made a few adjustments to speed up the process. By using lazy ginger (ready chopped ginger), canned tomatoes instead of fresh & a hand blender you really can have a curry made in less then half an hour.20140513-184627.jpg Serves: 4 hungry people

Ingredients 5 tablespoons olive oil 2 teaspoons mustard seeds 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds 3 fresh green chilies, de-seeded & blitzed in the food processor 1 handful curry leaf 2 tablespoons lazy ginger 1 large onion, peeled & blitzed in the food processor 1 teaspoon chilli powder 1 teaspoon turmeric 1 can chopped tomatoes 1 (400 ml) can coconut milk salt & pepper to taste 1 large handful Baby Spinach 1 large handful fresh coriander, chopped

Method Gently heat the oil in a pan & when hot add the mustard seeds Wait for them to pop, then add the fenugreek seeds, fresh green chilies, curry leaves & ginger. Stir & fry for a few minutes 20140513-184638.jpg Chop the food onions in the food processor & add to the pan 20140513-184657.jpg Continue to cook for 5 minutes, until the onion is light brown & soft 20140513-184705.jpg Add the chilli powder, turmeric & tomatoes 20140513-184712.jpg Cook for a couple of minutes & add the coconut milk 20140513-184720.jpg Simmer for about 5 minutes until it has the consistency of double cream, then season carefully with salt.

You can add chicken (fried in coriander seeds), sautéed vegetables or fish (king prawns are a favourite if mine), it's very versatile. I always finish this curry with a few handfuls of baby spinach and chopped coriander. I tend to freeze half of the sauce & defrost the night before, perfect for a Saturday night when the children are in bed with a few cold beers, Bon appetite! Michelle X

Mary Poppins Curried sweet potato soup

Mary Poppins Curried Sweet Potato Soup: Perfect for mummies on the move, it's filling, tastes amazing and really easy to make.

Michelle and I took Florence and Oliver to our friend Ellie's house for lunch. Ellie got her nickname "Mary Poppins" years ago-she is and does everything perfect in every way!

We smelt the soup before it was popped down in front of us, I swear there is something addictive in it, the taste was even better. After a couple of mouthfuls I was already asking for the recipe, so here it is guys, it will not disappoint!

Ingredients 4 large sweet potato (cubed) 1 large onion (chopped) 3 cloves of garlic (crushed) 1 yellow or red pepper (chopped) 1 table spoon madras curry powder (I used madras curry paste) 1 can coconut milk 4 cups vegetable stock Little vegetable oil 2 tea spoons of sugar 1 cup frozen peas

Method Heat oil and cook onions for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add crushed garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Add chopped peppers and curry powder. Cook for 1 minute or so. Add potatoes and 2 cups of stock. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Add coconut milk, sugar and stir. Bring to boil, add remaining stock and reduce temperature to simmer until the potato is cooked.

I like mine a little chunky so I take out about a quarter of the mixture before whizzing it and the add the chunky bits back in. I used a sieve to do this with a bowl at the ready, then put it back in after it was blended.

Add the cup of frozen peas to the soup and leave for 10 minutes before serving

Voila! Delish soup that looks good tastes good and requires no actual effort!
