Welcome to my cooking blog. My name is Michelle Jenkins. Let me start by admitting that these are NOT gourmet meals, they are NOT fine dining, but they are mine. I have cooked all of these recipes and taken my own photos. They are fairly simple recipes, most of them are quick to prepare and cook and all of them are delicious. I only post my successes! If something doesn't work out, I don't post it. I hope you enjoy this blog.

Challenge 3: Vegetable Curry

OK this is challenge recipe 3 and is a vegetable curry with mainly a tomato base. The additional yoghurt at the end is a different twist, but worth it.


  • 250g potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 200g cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 150g yellow squash, cut into quarters

  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 250ml vegetable stock
  • 150g green beans cut into short lengths
  • 30g sultanas


  1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, add the potato and pumpkin and cook for 6 minutes, then remove
  2. Add the cauliflower and squash, cook for 4 minutes, then remove
  3. In a large saucepan, heat the oil and cook the onion over a medium heat for 8 minutes or until starting to brown

Comments: I couldn't buy squash this week so I used zucchinis instead. I didn't have enough potatoes, so included some sweet potato. And I also didn't have beans so used red capsicum. It wouldn't serve 6. In fact it served 4 with rice! I'm finding the serving sizes are never correct. I wonder if we just eat too much! lol. I will definitely make it again. It was delicious  XD
