INTRODUCTION TO SPICES PART 6

This a curry I do on a Monday for a meat free Monday.  Always worth doing some vegetable dishes and nice simple ways to do them.

I use roots are available all year round.  Great to get one of those packs .  Soup packs great for those who find like me chopping a task.

I also add in Beetroot.  Which is cooked and used in curries and spices are sweet.  Alternative to sugar.  I find this is good healthy choice.

The choice is yours what ever you wish to add.  Roots Potato and Spinach always in a curry.  Add in Beetroot plus Carrots and Swede.  Butternut Squash good as well Sweet Potatoes.

Add in Chickpeas or rice to serve or Kidney Beans.
