Serves 4

2 Beetroot, peels and cubed

1 tin of chickpeas

1 fennel bulb, sliced

2 potatoes, peeled and quartered (I always peel potatoes when currying them as it guarantees they soak up the flavour)

1 onion, chopped

6 large tomatoes, chopped (alternatively, 1 tin of chopped tomatoes)

3 tbsps of vinegar

Salt

Ingredients

Nana’s Spice Mix

1/2 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp  cumin powder

1/2 tsp ground ginger powder

1/2 tsp tumeric

1/2 tsp paprika

1 tsp coriander powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

3 cups of water

Method

Mix spices in a saucepan with a little water to make a paste.

Fry spices until the water reduces being careful not to burn the spices.

Add a little more water and reduce again. Repeat this once more. (Frying your spices properly makes all the difference in flavour)

Add the onion and fennel and fry gently for around 5 minutes.

Add the beetroot, potatoes, chickpeas, tomatoes, water, vinegar and salt to taste and bring to the boil.

Turn heat down, add lid to the pan and simmer for 30 minutes.

Serve with basmati rice
