Nice recipe, I parboiled the potatoes first as suggested by previous posters and this ensured that they were cooked perfectly. I put in too much madras paste so it was quite hot but it was really nice. I also added some frozen french beans and some frozen peas which gave it a really nice sweetness.

I would definitely recommend this dish to a friend!
We used Balti Paste and substituted the standard potato for Sweet Potato.
A great dish!

My partner, our 1 year old and I all loved it.

Love this recipe. I left out the curry paste and fried up a mix of my favourite curry spices in groundnut oil for a few seconds before adding the veg. I used ground cumin, ground coriander, ground fenugreek and whole mustard seeds. Also added a couple of fresh chillis. Was delicious!

Lovely, the second time I made it I added chicken (to keep my husband happy) and threw a courgette in as I didn't have an aubergine. I make my own paste, following Jamie Olivers Tikka paste recipe.
This is my favourite at the moment!

Im not the best of cooks but had perfected a beautiful curry to cook for a dear friend who always looked after me and hubby so well when visiting our holiday home. I got caught out though as she had cut out meat and all things fat. I quickly came onto the site looking for a veggie/healthy option and found this recipe. I hadn't got any paste so whisked something up with what I had in the cupboard (turmeric, coriander etc). It was a little too hot so I put some lemon in to try and calm it down a bit. Served it with naan and a variety of dips, wedges etc and salad on the side. There were 6 of us so there was a combination of food on the table!! She absolutely loved it and took the recipe. She said her's wasn't as good as mine. I have made it a few times since and it's not failed me. thank you good food. You are helping to turn me into a pretty reasonable cook :-))

thought it was a bit too runny, will use less coconut milk next time, otherwise tasty..

I make this quite often, always a winner. You don't notice lack of meat at all.

not as tasy as i thought for a curry - a bit bland but very quick and easy to make though.

Quick, easy and delicious.

A good curry, I made my own curry paste to have with it as I like to cook from scratch. The curry was tasty and the potatoes were a really nice texture along with the mushrooms.

Oh and recommend balti paste too.

Cooked this yesterday - very easy to do and absolutely gorgeous!! I used Marks & Spencer Balti paste which was perfect - gave it a good kick but not too hot and spicy. I only had full fat coconut milk but a few extra calories was well worth it. May try it with chicken next time.

It's nice to find a veggie recipe that isn't all cheese.
Super tasty and filling.
