Cheats Precook Recipe




  • 200ml Base gravy
  • 400ml Water
  • 300gm Meat or vegetables


This is ridiculously simple. It might not give the same depth of flavour as the other precooking recipes but it’s perfect if you’re in a rush. Simply dilute the base gravy with the water in a large pan and bring it up to the boil. Add the diced meat or vegetables and simmer until cooked to your liking. Drain it all off, use in a curry straight away or refrigerate.

As a guide, here are some average cooking times.

  • Chicken – 8-10 minutes
  • Vegetables – 10-15 minutes
  • Lamb – 2- 3 hours (keep checking the liquid level)
