Really tasty meal - I also added chick peas and I would add more veg next time.

Lovely recipe. I used chicken thigh fillets rather than breast and simmered it for a little longer; I find thigh has much better flavour and texture in curries. I think I'll swap the peas for a different veg next time.

My 4 and 2 year olds love this. I add chick peas instead of peas though cos they love them! So quick and easy to make.

I've tried it with some variations: curry powder instead of curry paste (hard for me to find), carrots instead of sweet potatoes and left out lentils and served with basmati rice topped with toasted flaked almonds. It was really tasty.

I've served this meal a couple of times for family and friends and everyone is amazed at how great it is - especially the idea of sweet potato in a curry. It's a brilliant meal and one I thoroughly enjoyed cooking and eating!

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.
