  1. This is a gorgeous sweet-and-sour spin on the classic potato and cauliflower curry, aloo gobi. This balti version is good and saucy, so serve with a stack of chapatis.

    delicious. tip: This is one of those dishes that reheats really well the following day. A night in the fridge will add to the flavour but is likely to dry it out a bit, so add a little vegetable stock and microwave until piping hot.
