Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)


Now, let's get started!

Slice the waxy potatoes in half then add them to a heatproof bowl, cover the bowl with cling film and pierce a few holes in the top

Put the bowl in the microwave for 4-6 min or until the potatoes are fork-tender

Tip: Cooking for 4? Microwave the potatoes for 6-8 min!


Boil a kettle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the cumin seeds, curry powder, turmeric and ginger and garlic paste to the pan with a pinch of salt and cook for 1-2 min until fragrant


Meanwhile, dissolve the coconut cream, tomato paste and 1/2 [1] Knorr vegetable stock cube in 150ml [300ml] boiled water – this is your coconut stock

Add the coconut stock to the pan and cook for 2-3 min until thickened slightly


Meanwhile, add the baby leaf spinach to a colander and pour boiled water over it until it's wilted

Rinse the wilted spinach under cold water until it's cool enough to handle

Squeeze the water out of the cooled spinach (use clean hands for ease) then chop it roughly


Add the pittas to the toaster for 1-2 min or until warmed through

Slice the red chilli[es] finely


Once the potatoes are fork-tender, add them to the pan with the peas and chopped spinach and cook for 2 min further until everything is coated in the sauce

Stir through the mango chutney – this is your saag aloo
