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.

Yummy. Just finished cooking up a batch of this, I'm gonna try freezing it. Definitely needs something green adding to it for a bit of colour. Spinach/green beans/salad on the side maybe. I chucked in some lentils for a bit more body and texture, which worked well. I'll add some chicken/lamb/bacon if the hubbie is in a meatie mood.

This is a smashing recipe. Incredibly easy to follow. I also used tikka masala paste which was fine. I will use this again and add different veg or even some chicken for a slight twist.

Delicious! Next time I will add more mushrooms. They really soak up the curry sauce and were the best bits.

That sounds easy ... will be trying it soon. I made a gravy curry with mushroom using garam masala and cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom that tasted wonderful. I found the recipe @

What a fantastic recipe! Granted when cooking with vegatables such as potatoes, Cauliflower and carrots, I always "par-steam" beforehand.

i will definitely be using this one being a big curry fan but omit aubergines which we are not fond of and use butternut squash instead.

I forgot to add I used baby potatoes in the recipe and cut them in half, they were cooked in time with the rest of it, yum!

I followed the recipe almost to the letter but only found thai curry paste in the fridge, and it was AWESOME! Plus it was a quick and easy meal to make after work. With it being cold outside it was very welcome!

Went down a treat at a thanksgiving party but the aubergine and potatoes took longer to cook, the overall cooking time was quite long

I made this last night - it was delicious! I used hot madras curry paste and didn't find it too hot at all. I might try adding tofu for protein next time. The aubergine really made it I think. So easy and great to keep as leftovers or freeze for later meals :)
