Delicious I did not have any organ Josh paste so used curry powder,cumin powder. A good low GI meal minus the rice and nann.

I made this for 7 people so I doubled all the ingredients and it was a complete success! Very easy to make and tastes really good. I added a half a table spoon more of the Rogan Josh paste but other than that all went to plan.
I served mine with boiled rice, flat bread (another recipe on here) and a mint greek yoghurt!
