  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tsp nigella (black onion) seeds
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red chilli, finely diced (or green)
  • 250 g potatoes, diced
  • 500 g cauliflower, cut into bitesized pieces
  • 2 vegetable stock pots (or equivalent to make 1 litre of stock)
  • 250 g Savoy cabbage
  • 500 ml plain soya yoghurt, unsweetened
  • Salt and pepper


  • To a large saucepan add the onion, nigella seeds, garlic, chilli, tumeric, curry powder and 150ml of water and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir in the potatoes, cauliflower, stock pots and 750ml boiling water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are just tender.
  • Stir the shredded cabbage and simmer for a further three minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes before finishing by stirring in the yoghurt, salt and pepper. Allowing the curry to cool slightly will prevent the yoghurt from splitting.
