Welcome to Cakes kitchen.

People are struggling with the costs of college fees and the general cost of living, and I know the feeling-after living on 30 bucks a week for groceries in the past one learns how to create top notch curry that is not only cheap but tasty and your wallet will thank you for it.

Here is the recipe ( Serves three-add more ingredients to cater for a larger group)

2 large potatoes
1 onion
2 carrots
3 sausages
A cup of frozen mixed vegetables
A tub of sour cream
Powdered beef stock
Two teaspoons of Curry powder
A teaspoon of Cumin
Pepper and Herbs to taste

It's pretty simple. Chop up the vegetables and the sausages and bring them to a slow boil, then add a teaspoon of stock. Let the concoction stew until the vegetables are soft, then drain the water. Add the sour cream, stir, then add the curry powder, pepper, herbs and cumin and then stir again. Once the concoction thickens, serve and enjoy.

The herbs are the most expensive ingredients but they will last for months. As for the rest of the ingredients you'd be unlucky to spend ten dollars for a meal for three, And the herbs left over can used to create a bolognese that is also cheap and easy to make.

Living on cheap noodles can be a thing of the past, hopefully this helps. I will post more recipes as they come to mind.

What is your experience on the curry powder? Do you suggest being selective about where you get it or is any supermarket have decent curry?

I have been thinking for ages about a thread about austerity cooking, I am something of a master if I don't mind saying so!

Would it be ok to add my naan bread recipe here as an accompanyment? Very efficient and cost effective!

Generic red curry powder does the trick.

I make a curry in a hurry- but don't worry, it's not slurry.

I have quite a few friends whose families are from India and they all put potatoes in their curry.

As a matter of fact, sometimes they are the best part.

Hold your horseradish, I'm cumin round the the mountain.

But mark my words-this recipe can't be beat. A thousand Islands couldn't replicate this taste.

When I was a student (long time ago) we devised the "never ending stew", whereby we just topped it up and re-boiled. It lasted two weeks before we all nearly died from food poisoning.

Nowadays I can afford decent fresh food and have cut out processed. It's cheaper, and better. Making your own beer is also far cheaper.
