Vegetable Jalfrezi curry

Just £5.75

Packed with vegetables and bursting with flavour – no one will miss the meat! Feel free to vary the veg another week according to what you have in your fridge. You could use carrots instead of butternut squash – and even potatoes instead of cauliflower. Switch it up another time and use an aubergine instead of the peas.
