Marrow, chickpea and potato curry

Someone gave me a marrow and the faces of the children said it all! I must thank Yumski for supplying this recipe as everyone enjoyed the result. It came out a little dry so I added a little coconut milk for extra richness.


1 tsp cumin seeds
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
A 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp oregano
1 medium marrow, diced
10 small potatoes, diced
1 x 400g tin chickpeas
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tbsp curry powder
A little coconut milk


Heat some oil in a large pan. Add the cumin seeds and fry until brown. Add the onion and gently fry until soft. Add the ginger and garlic, stir well, then add the turmeric, chilli powder and oregano. Add the marrow, stir well, turn the heat down and cover. Stir occasionally. Meanwhile add the potatoes to a pan of boiling water and boil until soft. When the marrow is cooked through add the potatoes and chickpeas. Finally add the garam masala and the curry powder and cook for a further five minutes, stirring occasionally.  It was at this point I added coconut milk.

Serve with rice and/or naan bread etc.
