1 large onion, finely chopped, or 140g frozen diced onion
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1–2 tbsp garlic and ginger paste
2 tbsp medium curry powder

400g tin kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes

To serve
basmati rice
fresh coriander (optional)
Recipe tips
Method
Put the onion in a large non-stick pan, add the oil and a generous pinch of salt, and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes, or until the onion starts to soften.

Add the garlic and ginger paste and stir in well, then stir in the curry powder. Pour in the pineapple, along with all of the juice. Add the kidney beans, then the tomatoes, and stir well. Season generously with black pepper and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the curry from sticking and burning. You may need to add a splash of water to stop it from drying out.

Serve hot, with basmati rice and coriander, if using.

Chorizo & pea risotto

Graham

Ingredients
1 tbsp oil
200g chorizo , peeled and chopped
300g arborio risotto rice
2 tbsp vinegar (white wine vinegar if you have it)
1.2l chicken stock (fresh is best), heated until simmering
200g frozen peas
60g parmesan , finely grated, plus extra to serve

Method
Heat the oil in a large frying pan, tip in the chorizo and fry until it is crisp and all the oil has been released. Remove a quarter of the chorizo with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Tip the rice into the pan, stir to coat it in the oil and toast for a min or so, then pour in the vinegar. Once the vinegar has evaporated, add a ladleful of the stock, stir then, once absorbed, add a bit more. Continue doing this for about 20 mins until most of the stock has been absorbed and the rice has swollen but still has a slight bite.

Tip in the peas, parmesan and the remaining stock. Give everything a good stir. Once the cheese has melted, season with black pepper, then divide between bowls, topping each portion with the remaining crisp chorizo and extra grated parmesan.
