If you’re trying to save money and relying on pantry items give this tasty, all in one curry a go.  It costs less than $2.50 per serve!



  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1-2 large potato/kumara or wedge of pumpkin, chopped into 2cm cubes
  • 2 cans chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cans chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1.5 cups peas or corn or any frozen veg
  • 2 cups water or reduced salt stock
  • 2 tbsp curry powder or curry paste

How to make:

  1. Fry onion, carrot and curry powder/paste.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients apart from the peas/corn and cook for 20-30mins until vegetables are tender.
  3. Add peas/corn and cook for another 5 mins.


You could serve with rice or just enjoy on its own. You can adapt this as you like – use any canned legumes and any veg, fresh, canned or frozen.  Dont like curry?  Just leave the spices out!
