I hadn’t done a vegetarian option for my Feed 4 for £6 series for a little while so I thought it was about time I did. I am a big fan of recipes which involve putting ingredients into a pan, putting a lid on and leaving it to its own devices and this is one of those. If you can’t find paneer for this recipe you can use halloumi but it’s saltier. All you need otherwise is onions, carrots, peas, curry powder and rice. Sorted.
|You will need (for 4):|
|Rapeseed oil for frying||£0.02|
|1 medium onion, diced||£0.10|
|2 medium carrots, diced||£0.18|
|200g frozen peas||£0.25|
|250g basmati rice||£0.45|
|2 cloves garlic, finely chopped||£0.05|
|2 heaped tsp curry powder||£0.05|
|700ml hot vegetable stock||£0.10|
|Salt and pepper||£0.02|
|225g paneer, cubed||£1.54|
Rice is always welcome on my table in whatever form it comes. In this it’s got a lovely curried flavour along with the sweet carrot, peas and onion and the peppery slightly salted cheese. My favourite bits are the golden edges of the paneer. I have to say that this has to be one of the most filling things I have ever made, I almost couldn’t eat it all (but I had just had some cake!). This costs less than £3 for four, is very satisfying and is easy to make. Ideal weeknight grub.
