Spicy bubble and squeak

Hari says

There is nothing like spicing up your leftovers for a new inspired delicious breakfast, snack or dinner. I hate to waste food and its a bit of a standing joke with my friends that I won't throw anything away but what can nI say its the way mum bought me up. because of this I have become demon in the art of reusing leftovers - from a lamb tagine with leftover roast lamb to a post Christmas turkey briyani there is always something snazzy you can throw together so here you have a very easy bubble and squeeze Indian style. I usually do this with leftover veg from Sunday dinner but honestly you can use whatever you have leftover.

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 800g mixed veg leftovers
  • leftover meat (optional)
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 chilli
  • 4 free range eggs


  1. Chop veg into chunks and halve the tomatoes.
  2. Heat oil in a wide based pan and add mustard seeds.
  3. As they pop add the sliced onion until just soft and turning golden then add sliced garlic.
  4. Add the turmeric, the vegetables, meat and chopped chilli to the pan and fry on a high heat.
  5. Squash the veg down and cook for a few minutes until it is hot and just starts to crisp up a little.
  6. sprinkle with garam masala and top with a fried egg for each person.
