We love any kind of curry on top of our potatoes, but here’s the recipe for our family veg curry… It makes a wonderfully warming bowlful.

Hug in a bowl


  • 4 Baked Jacket Potatoes
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes (400g)
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • 250g frozen mixed veg (or any other veg you fancy)
  • coriander, to garnish
  • yoghurt for dolloping


Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onion until softened and slightly golden.

Add the garlic and curry powder, stirring it all around for a couple of minutes until fragrant.

Throw the veg in to the pan, along with the tin of tomatoes and veg stock, bring it all up to a simmer and let it bubble gently for 20-30 mins until the veg are cooked through.

Season, add some chilli if you’d like an extra kick, then heap it all on top of your potato with a sprinkling of fresh coriander and a spoonful of cooling yoghurt.
