Made this today for our weekly 'mystery meal' along with the vegetable and cashew biriyani. Total success! I'm a veggie, my husband isn't, but he loves a curry of any kind! So easy to make, essential with a 10 month old daughter crawling around trying to distract me, and especially tasty! Highly recommended!

Absolutely delicious!!! My carnivore hubbie loved it and didn't miss the meat at all. Very filling and a tasty guilt free meal. Well done good food!!!

I made this last night for my boyfriend and it was a hit.
I par boiled the potatoes as suggested and used 3 1/2 tablespoons of Patak's Balti Paste and it worked perfectly.
The recipe couldn't be any simpler and it's very quick to make. It's a great after work dinner, when you don't have long to prepare something.

Made this for family who were visiting and one member vegetarian. Everyone cleared there plates and some had seconds. Tasty recipe, think I'll add the 4tbsps of paste next time to give it abit more kick.

Made this for dinner tonight and thought it was really tasty. Made it with full fat coconut milk and added 4 tbsp of tikka masala paste, but would probably add more next time. I also added extra potato and some spinach which I had in the freezer. The main thing I would say is that I found it needed quite a bit of salt (and I really don't take much salt in my food).

I will definitely make this again but add more curry paste and salt in the cooking process for flavour.

Cooked this for the first time along with the cauliflower curry and both were a hit but this one (mushroom) was the favourite, extremely tasty and more-ish. Next time I might some framage fraise to thicken it a little. Gorgeous taste tho.

This looks good and I'll definitely be giving it a go. I love coconut milk but for those who don't like it perhaps Greek yoghurt would do instead?

Made it with full on coconut milk and microwaved the chopped potatoes for a couple of minutes before adding to the rest. This was easy to make, absolutely delicious and now a favourite.

This is delicious, no problem with the cooking time for the potatoes, used pataks balti paste and added king prawns yummy. Definitely a keeper. Thanks Good Food!

I made this for my vegetarian friend at a party we had. She love it so much that she took it home the next day to finish. Held it for 30 miles in a pot.

This was delicious, one to remember. Used Thai Green curry paste but added chilli, garam masala, tumeric and groun coriander.

Super-simple curry to make. I substituted the aubergine for some overgrown courgettes from the garden and it even managed to make them palatable!
A greay curry for beginners and tasted even better re-heated the next day.

Wife and kids away and had some odd bits in the fridge threatening to to go furry, so searched the ingredients and this matched. Claimed top serve four, but served me three times on consecutive days.
easy, quick and quite quite delicious.

can i make this without coconut milk?

I can't believe how good this was!! I used cauli instead of aubergine and a tikka paste. It was so easy!!

Well I'm a bit of an idiot, I cut the potato too small and forgot to trim the aubergine! But it still turned out pretty well. I used Thai green curry paste but I wish I'd used something with a little more kick!
Next time I may chuck in a little spinach to add a little more colour and a source of iron!

Yummy. Such an easy meal to make. I added a tin of chick peas to mine to increase the protein. Will be definitely be making again.

Loved this! Really tatsy and even my meat eating husband liked it. 2 veggy kids aged 14 and 12 also enjoyed it, although they weren't keen on the aubergine. Great to have a meal we can all enjoy together!
