  • onions 2, chopped
  • oil
  • cumin seeds 1 tsp
  • brown mustard seeds 1 tsp
  • cayenne pepper a pinch
  • turmeric ½ tsp
  • tomatoes 2, chopped
  • marrow 1 small, cubed
  • lemon 1, juiced
  • coriander a bunch, chopped
  • natural yoghurt to serve

  • Step 1

    Fry the onion in some oil until it softens – this will take about 5 minutes. Add the spices and turn up the heat, stir and fry for a minute and then add the tomatoes, stir and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the marrow and a splash of water, then put a lid on the pan and cook for 5 minutes, or until the marrow is tender but not mushy. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice, then stir in the coriander. Serve with some yoghurt and steamed rice.
