Easy and delicious, I used a balti paste and added chickpeas to bulk it up.

Really easy to make. Very tasty although mine seemed to turn out a little dry, perhaps I needed to add a little extra curry paste? Anyway, would def cook again as very quick so great for mid-week dinner.

Quick, easy and tasty! Its nice that you can alter the strength dependent on what curry paste you buy! I went for the Madras which gave it a real kick! Even nice cold for lunch the next day!
