The perfect mid-week curry - even my fussy kids seem to love this one! I often leave out the chicken, substituting mangetout and spinach instead for a tasty veggie option. The curry's a bit cool for me - but if it gets my five year old to eat four different vegetables AND red lentils, it stays on my favourites list!

This is a gorgeous curry and is so versatile... As I like a bit of spice I double/triple the curry paste content. I've made it with quorn and also like to add a handful of mushrooms.

Serve with natural yoghurt and plenty of freshly chopped coriander! Yum!

delicious! reckon it will be a great base for variations. I made half a batch and i think i had too much sweet potato so it was huge but still really tasty!

Simple, nutritious but very tasty. A mild curry that the whole family (aged from 3) will eat, ready in half an hour - what more can you ask for!.

Loved this but had to put in a lot more than than the 2 tsps of curry paste it states in the recipe.

Have been looking for a curry recipe for ages now and tried this last night and was very impressed. I,m not a hot curry fan so this was just right, the textures worked really well together and even my 3yr old daughter ate it. Will definately be cooking it again!

I used madras curry paste and broccoli instead of peas and it was fantastic! Great comfort food.

Georgous. If you like Dansak you will love this, it is very similar.

Lovely recipe. I've made it a number of times now, my favourite variation has added chickpeas and fresh spinach stirred through just before serving.

Delicious. I have also swapped coconut milk with tomatoes and left out the chicken for a lean veggie option. Also good to add natural yoghurt and chopped coriander on the top when you serve!
