I love this! I cooked the potato for a bit longer than stated, and instead of aubergine I used courgette that I had grilled very slightly before adding. It came out delicious and was a huge hit at work. I made some for my mum too and she loves it!!

This is one of those recipes that has a quality that I call "basic yumminess". It will always be delicious unless you REALLY deviate. I almost ate the entire batch in one sitting, it's so good.
I left out the eggplant and put in some left over turkey, used chicken broth, and decided to try tikka masala for the first time. (Four rounded Tbs.) It's a very mild curry, so my batch of "one-pot" turned out mild, although the curry flavor was great. I added two tsp of red curry paste. That seemed to deepen the curry flavor, while it gave off the medium spice-heat I was looking for. Also, because of previous comments I nuked my spud to about half done.
The simplicity and speed of this dish (and of course the basic yumminess) make it one of my favorite curries.

Will try making my own paste next time, generally I enjoyed it but the potatoes went a bit weird, not entirely sure why, probably something I did wrong!

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!

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!

Yummy! Cooked it with sweet potatoes! Finger licking good :)

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.
