Quite tasty. 14 month old baby enjoyed it. Still a bit watery even without adding the water. Will make again because it is so quick and easy.

I used what I had in the fridge / cupboard, so used Patak Korma paste, a fresh red chilli, fresh thumbnail size of chopped ginger and a 400g tin of chopped tomatoes. I added a tin of chickpeas and some frozen French beans. I let the mixture bubble away then reduced the heat and left it simmering till the tomatoes reduced. Served with rice and a garlic bread. Quick and simple to make, very tasty to eat.

Didn't add the water and still found it a bit watery. Also had to add a lot more garam masala than suggested to give it any flavour. On top of that it needed a fair bit of salt, and in the end I still found it a bit too tomatoey tasting to be a convincing curry! Quite disappointing really, but still edible - I just won't be making it again!

Was nice flavours but I agree, no need to add the water as the tomatoes make enough moisture!!

A fantastic tasting meal, quick, tasty and low calorie.

Would agree with other comments that water is not needed.

This recipe is absolutely fantastic..it's easy to follow and quick and is now our Saturday night regular instead of a takeaway curry, much less fat, cheaper and tastier. We reduced the amount of chillies slightly as don't like them too hot...delicious.

It tastes amazing with chickpeas instead of chicken also. This is one of my favourite dishes, and I love cooking it for friends, who are always impressed. Delicious and so simple!

A vey nice easy way to make a curry, but i would'nt add the water because the canned tomatoes add enough moisture.
