    havent seen it in Asda but will have a look, is it in a tin. I make mine with a tin of pease pudding diluted with water and seasoning and add some curry powder all free on green, makes loads from one little tin.

    I use this a lot and love it. It is free and makes a great base for a veggie curry or just with rice or wedges for a quick meal.

    275g/10oz canned sweetcorn kernals drained
    2 mild green chilli's deseeded & finely chopped
    200g/7oz bottled roasted red peppers in brine rinsed drained & finely chopped
    6 spring onions finely sliced

    preheat the oven to 170/gas 3 spray a 20cm/8in baking tin with fry light.
    Mix together the polenta & baking powder & season well.
    In a jug combine the beaten egg & yogurt & pour into the polenta mixture, add the sweetcorn, chillies, red pepper & spring onions & stir lightly to combine.

    is dhal very spicy or mild never tried it before

    It's fairly mild - could always add lemon juice if too hot for you.

    Re no Asda, there's probably a recipe somewhere that you could adapt to SW, cook up a batch then freeze in portions? (I couldn't find anything similar in Tesco - Morrisons have a cold shelf one but it's synned)

    Nanny Jax getting back on track

    Morrisons stock tinned chickpea dhal, it's made by Sundar and it is delicious.
