Great recipe but my husband does not like coconut so I substitute a couple of dollops of good greek yoghurt - delish! Oh and I agree with adding a dollop of mango chutney for added flavour.

cheap to buy and very easy to cook, my daughter and me cooked it together, she added chicken to her portion I left mine veggie. It was very filing and the taste was very ymmuy. Much better then supermarket made ready ones. gonna try a desert next.

I have a friend who's vegan, so I needed some new recipes when she's over for dinner. This curry was really easy and tasty - and filling! I don't like aubergine but I just added more mushrooms and some jerusalem artichokes for more bite instead. This can easily be a base for adding other ingredients like chicken or other vegetables. I bet pumpkin will be good in this.

Wouldn't be my favorite curry. Mine didn't have that dark color like the pix. Perhaps I missed something. I added Sharwood's hot curry powder but wasn't hot enough - should have put in more as I like my curry hot. The potato was a bit overcooked because I cut it up too small.

We put Tikka paste as recommended and cooked the potatoes for 5 minutes longer.
I put 7 TBSP's of paste in to make it spicier but it was probably a little too much.
I would like to know what this tastes like with vegetable stock or chicken stock instead of coconut milk as low fat coconut milk is still VERY high in saturated fat.
However it was very very tasty and I would definitely cook it again soon.
I'm about to try the lamb biriyani.
If your unsure about this recipe - Stop wasting your time and do it, you'll be glad like me you did.

Quick, easy and very very tasty!

Not overly keen. Used Madras curry paste because I thought the coconut milk would make it fairly mild anyway.

Wilted spinach in at the end because really like it. Found that the aubergine and spinach gave it a slimy texture and the flavour wasn't particulary exciting...have recipes for much nicer vegetarian curries.

Will stick to my tried and tested curries and won't bother with this one again.

Did this with a tikka masala sauce as had no curry paste. Also added some spinach as others suggest. Delicious and very filling with the aubergine and potato. Ate with cumin seed flatbreads recipe (also on this website) - good job as the (new) potatoes didn't really cook. Will do again but parboil potatoes.

I made thislast night - it was superb. My tweak was to use coconut water instead of coconut milk to make it almost fat free and used cornflower to thicken. It was scrummy even my son who hates veggies loved it. Just had the left overs for lunch.

I used curry powder as I didn't have any paste. I put quite a lot in but it wasn't spicy at all. Is it supposed to be like a korma or is that just cos I didn't use the paste?

This looks fantastic. I will make it tonight and 'beef it up' with some extra tofu. SO looking forward to it!!!

We all loved this. I did what other cooks did and added spinach and cauliflower. My young children were eating this and they enjoyed it I used a mild pataks korma paste. Very easy to make but I too thought the potatoes needed a bit of par-boiling to begin with. Delicious, quick and easy!

I par boiled the potatoes for 10 mins first both times I made it and used peas and green beans instead of aubergine. The second time I made it I used full fat coconut milk and chicken stock. Second time was nicer... yummy dish!

This is a quick and easy fave of mine and i make it quite often. I use dried wild mushrooms if i can get hold of them and like so many others have said i do boil the potatoes for a while first.
Right at the very end i also add a tin of chopped spinach

This is a lovely recipe and I have made it each time in my slow cooker, omitting the aubergine, and each time it has come out great. The mushrooms and potato really take in the flavour in the slow cooker. Is a definite favourite in my house!

Delicious receipe (but I always added an extra 2 spoonfulls of curry powder to give it a little more oomph)

Love this tasty dish. I used broccolli instead of aubergine the second time I made it and we all preferred it this way. A very tasty easy one pot curry dish that all the family loved. Thank you!

so nice! i used courgettes as well and semi-skimmed milk instead of coconut milk, it was delicious!

Incredibly easy to make, and incredibly tasty to eat! I made as per the recipe above (though had to use creamed coconut as my local shop didn't have any coconut milk!) and it was brilliant either with rice or with naan bread. Froze half of it and had it several days later, and still just as nice!
