  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 5 medium potatoes, peeled
  • 1 squash, cut into chunks
  • chopped tomatoes tin
  • 200ml water

Method:

  1. Place all the spices, onion, oil and bouillon powder (everything apart from the water, tomatoes, squash and potatoes) into a blender
  2. Blend into a smooth paste
  3. Fry the paste in a pan for 5 minutes
  4. Place the fried paste into a slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients
