Method

Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan and cook the onions for 10 minutes or until soft. Add the chilli (if using), garlic, ginger, tikka paste and red pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Add the raw potato chunks and red pepper and stir well before adding the tomato purée, tinned tomatoes and water. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, or until the potato is cooked through.

Add the chicken and cook for another 15 minutes (top with a little water if the meat doesn’t fit beneath the surface of the liquid). Add the cream and season well.

Serve with chopped coriander, flaked almonds and lime wedges.

TIPs

  • Add a couple of handfuls of spinach add the end of cooking if you’d like to get more veg into this dish.
  • Season with 1tsp of salt. Both the potatoes and cream disguise salt so you need more than you think to bring the flavours out.

Potato Peel Soup Recipe by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

"There’s nothing humble about this soup’s rich, creamy flavour – it tastes, remarkably, like mushrooms. And if it seems just a little too pared-back, it’s very easy to jazz it up with some nice finishing touches. Make sure the potatoes are well scrubbed before you peel them so the peels are very clean.
