How to make this roasted broccoli and potato curry?
First, you will need to parboil the potatoes in boiling water so they can be roasted at the same time as the broccoli.
To give this dish some lovely flavours, the vegetables are then tossed in vegetable oil and garam masala before being roasted in the oven.
While the broccoli and potatoes are cooking, you can start preparing the tomato base for the sauce. The tomatoes are simmered with coconut milk, peanut butter, and chickpeas in a flavoursome base of sauteed onions, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, chilli flakes, and turmeric.
Once the vegetables are cooked, simply stir them carefully in the tomato sauce until combined and serve this curry straightaway with naan bread, fresh coriander, lime, peanuts, and some extra chilli flakes. Enjoy!
