Serves 2-3 people, freezes well
This is a very flavoursome recipe with simple ingredients (if you have a reasonably well stocked spice cupboard). You could omit the root ginger although it does add a lovely fragrant, fresh flavour to the dish. (If you buy a big piece of ginger, you can use it to make ginger tea and it is also delicious cut into matchstick slices and sprinkled onto salads). Root ginger can be easily peeled with the sharp, inside edge of a teaspoon. It works better than using a knife and there is less wastage.
If you don’t have garam masala (available from Waitrose), you could add 1 tsp curry powder instead. Try and use stock if you can although water will do if necessary. This recipe can be served with rice or piled onto chapatis and eaten in your hands, street food style. See gluten-free chapati recipe here.
