Vegetable Madras // A Healthy Curry

Veg Madras

Ahh! Yes! Curry!

I never was a big curry eater. Then I went to university in Bradford. Bradford is the city of curries and it was there I found my love for lamb rogan josh, and other things spicy.

I was sent two Holy Cow curry sauces in the latest Degustabox and I had a request from a reader to do something with the sauce.

If you read my fitness blog, you’ll know that I’ve been eating healthily lately, trying to tone up and trim down, so I decided to make a vegetable madras with roast sweet potatoes and courgette.

  • Holy Cow madras sauce
  • 1 orange pepper
  • half a yellow pepper
  • 1 large courgette
  • 1 sweet potato
  • half a red onion
  • 6 mushrooms
  • 2 salad tomatoes
  • half a tin of sweetcorn
  • greenbeens

  • Pre-heat the oven at 200C
  • Chop the sweet potatoes and half the courgette. You can also peel them if you wish.
  • Place on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Play the potatoes and courgette in the oven for 25 minutes
  • Chop up the rest of the veg and fry. I added the courgette, pepper and onion first, then the mushrooms, tomatoes and green beans. This is also the point I realised how much veg I have, and decided not to add the sweetcorn!
  • After frying for 5-10 minutes, put the veg in a pan and pour the cooking sauce over.
  • Stir and leave cooking in the pan for 10 minutes.
  • Take the potatoes and courgette out of the oven, turn off the hob and serve!

This healthier version of madras serves 2 – 3 and allows you to indulge a little while still being healthy.

The sauce was lovely and I could feel the spice in it. I had to go and blow my nose at one point because it gave me a bit of a kick!

What’s your favourite type of curry?
