Enjoy a fakeaway night, with this delicious and Syn Free Beef and Potato Curry, leaving you plenty of syns to enjoy a couple of poppadums.
Gotta love a good ole simple curry and this one doesn’t disappoint in flavour.
I love curries of any kind and eat one at least once a week, each time vary them up by using different meats, adding different vegetables and using a different blend of spices.
I had taken some beef out of the freezer to defrost, not entirely sure what I was going to make with it, and well curry just seemed like a perfect choice.
The amount of beef wasn’t really enough for the whole family, so I added in a few baby yellow potatoes, to bulk it out and oh my what a delicious combination, the potatoes really absorb all that flavour and are a perfect addition when you don’t have enough meat to serve the whole family.
My very close friend who’s family are North Indian, tell’s me that adding potatoes to a curry is a very British thing to do and not something that Indian’s really do. Although she often adds some potatoes to her curries and really enjoys them too.
You could actually make a really good vegetarian curry with just potatoes and other vegetables, cauliflower would be amazing!!
The spinach was a last minute addition, as I had some that needed using up, and it’s a perfect way to add some speed to a dish like this Beef and Potato Curry.
I also made a little mint yoghurt for adding to the top, just mixing a bit of fresh mint into some plain fat free yoghurt, with a little lemon juice and, sukrin: 1 to sweeten and salt. The sukrin is a natural sweetener which has no aftertaste and my preferred choice when using sweeteners.
The Patak’s Poppadums I use are ones you can add to the microwave. I just spray with a little spray oil, place on a bit of kitchen paper and cook in the microwave as directed. The packaging tells you to brush with oil, but spray oil works perfectly. They are a great addition to any curry.
