Sweet Potato and Spinach Curry

When planning my meals ahead for the week, I always like to make a big pot of something that I can have for lunch or dinner a few times a week to starve away the hunger and keep me on track! 

I've always been partial to a Saag Aloo and although this is nothing like it - I knew that the potatoes and spinach would be a winning combo.  Team this with my favourite curry base - and you have a curry to die for!

The best part about this meal is that its so easy to make using cupboard store ingredients!
Easy, Healthy, filling and tasty - what more could you want?

You Will Need:

300g Sweet Potato Diced
400g Tinned Spinach Leaf in Water Drained
1 Onion Diced
2 Cloves of Garlic Minced
400g Tin Chopped Tomatoes/Passata
Chicken/Veg Stock Cube

1 Tsp Turmeric
1 Tsp Ground Coriander

As Much Chilli Powder as you like if you like
75ml Water
2Tbsp 0% Fat Greek Yoghurt (I use Total Greek Yoghurt)
Frylight/Calorie Controlled Oil Spray
Salt & Pepper for seasoning

250g Cooked Basmati Rice


In a heavy bottom pan sprayed with oil, soften the onions and garlic

Add the potato and spices and fry off for another few minutes to let the spices toast and to take on the flavour

Crumble in the stock cube - add the water and simmer for 2 minutes

Add the tomatoes and spinach - cover and set to simmer on a low to medium heat for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and cooked through

Take the curry off the heat and stir in the yoghurt

Delicious served straight away, but can be kept in the fridge or frozen for a later time!

  1. Hi, what would the portion of spinach be if using fresh?

    1. Hi Ellie, you would use a bag of fresh spinach :)
