This naturally (in my opinion) includes matters pertaining to all student’s stomachs and that is why, as a little gift to you our valued Indian reader/student, I have decided to share a much cheaper take on a traditional Indian dish (with an added South African Indian twist of course) with all my valued readers. Enjoy!

Easy Cheap Curry And Rice
Ingredients:
1 Onion (diced)
1 Diced potato
2 Peeled and diced tomatoes                                                                                               1 Can mixed vegetables (drained)                                                                                       2 Teaspoons turmeric powder
1 Teaspoon coriander
1 Teaspoon cumin
2 Bay leaves
Curry powder (as per spiciness/heat preference)
2 Cups uncooked rice
Method: Boil the rice in some salt water until cooked. Steam or boil the diced potato until it is soft enough to eat, but still firm. Fry the diced tomatoes and onion in a large pot, using some olive or sunflower oil and then add the spices, curry powder, vegetables and potato to the pot. Finally add a half a cup of water to the mix and bring to the boil. Cook the mixture through for approximately 15 minutes and then, finish off by serving the mixture on a bed of the cooked rice. Viola! There you have it; the easiest and most cheap Indian curry recipe you’ll find anywhere online!
