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!

Need help - my hubby hates coconut - could I use evaporated milk instead of coconut milk?

Very nice and simple. I added some spinach as suggested.

This was absolutely yummy, added a bit more spice as i like a hot curry, and a little less coconut milk, defiantly went down well.

this had a deliceous flavour but I made a mistake by using a full fat coconut milk which was very thick and gave the curry an oily texture. Will definately make again with a lighter coconut milk.

I've made this several times now for a big crowd, doing three or four times the quantities, and it has always worked brilliantly and gone down a treat. Usually add some baby spinach leaves towards the end.

Really lovely meal. I wouldn't mess with the main ingredients cos the potato, mushroom and aubergine go so well together.

What I did do was add a little extra chilli and some garlic, and used korma curry paste. I ended up with a sweet, mildly spicy, lovely dish.

The other thing to note is, it was better made using a few new potatoes cut into chunks instead of one big potato. But waxy new potatoes take a fair bit longer to cook - I reckon I simmered it for another 10 minutes. But the result was worth it.

If you do that, add 50-75ml more stock or boiling water.

Inexpensive & simple to make, delicious to eat. I make this with either coconut cream or coconut milk and I often add just about any other vegetable or meat that needs using up as well.

did anyone else find it very 'wet'? seem to have alot of thin sauce. tasty though

so nice! i cooked the potato for a lot longer than it said it needed but this didnt matter at all as the end dish was absolutely lovely!

A few curry leaves and bay leaves work well with this dish, and a pinch of asafatida before frying off the veg.

I used tandoori spice powder and some garlic with a dash of groud corriander ok I know a bit hit or miss, but it was use up bits from the cupboard. it was fabulous.

Quick, easy and tasty - perfect mid-week meal! I added some peppers and tofu to make it a bit more substantial, but it's great as it is too :)

Nice! Used thai curry paste which I'm not sure was the best match.

This is now my number one curry in a hurry and has resulted in me making sure I have a good supply of Low Fat coconut milk in the kitchen.

It's too much for two which is great because after being frozen for a week it's even more delicious.

I subscribed to the magazine on the back of this recipe.

Ive made this 3 times now since finding the recipe a fortnight ago! I love it, first two times i didnt have any curry paste so used some lloyd grossman tikka masala curry sauce, then used garam masala curry paste tonight which was a bit spicier but coconut milk stops it being "hot". added a green pepper tonight which wasn't that brilliant.
