Would definately make again.

Made this dish twice in one week! Having never made a curry before it was so easy. I added in creme fraiche at the end to give it a better consistency. Made me want to try more curry recipes because it was like a 'take away'. Yum

A great home made curry - I added some red and green pepper and mushrooms that needed using - very tasty and the sweet poato means no need for rice- served with warmed pitta bread! Will make this again!

Really tasty and so easy to make. Great as a student meal too. We made it between four of us and it cost less than £1.50 each. Will definitely be making it again.

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.
