It was so simple to make, and very cheap to get the ingredients. The meal turned out delicious, and was even a massive hit with my extremely fussy partner, who hates most vegetables. Like others, I used tikka paste and it turned out an absolute treat. A highly recommended recipe.

Made this last week, very tasty, especially as I am dieting it made a nice spicy change. I am going to make again today with more mushrooms as I thought they were delicious in this sauce, also going to use cauliflower instead of aubergine for a change and it is my favourite vegetable. Made it for 2, recipe easily halved.

Very tasty! Mine didn't look much like the photo though. I might add some chicken and different veggies the next time.

Nice, even without the coconut milk to save calories

this was delicious! i added 2 garlic cloves, crushed (since we're crazy for garlic) and it really added the flavour. it was nice, creamy. instead of milk i added cream for cooking at the very end and it turned out great. definitely making this again!

I thought it was okay... Not amazing. I wouldn't cook this to impress guests, but it was nice just for myself and my flatmate.

Having read previous comments, I par-boiled the potatoes and found the rest of the cooking times consistent.
I also added a sweet potato, green beans, spinach, and used M&S Balti curry paste. Quite filling and tasty.

Total disaster if you use Garam Masala curry paste. Would benefit if the recipe suggested a curry paste with a particular base.

Cooked thi lat night and it was so so easy and very tasty. I never read the comments beforehand and used a rogan josh curry paste was was lovely, next time i'll try it with tikka masala. Agree with everyone about the cooking time, I cooked mine on a low heat for 1 hr.

Does anyone know which curry paste I can buy WITHOUT sugar? I am sick of every curry jar in the shops loaded with sugar..I hate it!

Absolutely delicious. Didn't change anything. Doubled the quantity as was cooking for 11. Made this & a beef curry, but this was the favourite, even with the meat eaters. Made it again for hubby & added prawns at last minute. So easy & better than any take-away!

Tried this out on a non-veggie friend of mine.

Overall a very nice meal, serve with rice and a naan.

I would say that 400ml of coconut milk is too much, unless you like a really really runny curry. I'll use 200ml the next time I do this recipe.

Needed adjustments. Aubergine + left-over potatoes + tons of mushrooms + tin of tomatoes + tin of coconut milk + madras curry paste + salt & pepper + chilli flakes + chopped coriander + naan bread. Lovely.

Do we really need a recipe for this, though? It's what I would usually make when hunting round my fridge for things to use up. I agree with Belinda, this has strayed a long way from the original!
