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!

Lush! Added peppers and used red thai paste and coconut milk instead of water. Making again tonight :)

Quite a nice curry but I found there wasn't enough sauce - perhaps I didn't use enough liquid

Loved it! Used half a tin of tomatoes instead and Pataks Balti paste - really delicious, the sweet potatoes really soaked up all the flavour

Anyone got any recommendations for good brands of curry paste out there?

Second time I have made this. First time followed the recipe completely and it was lovely, tasted really fresh. Tonight I only had frozen spinach, a brown onion and canned tomatoes, but even though it was quite a different meal it was still great!

So tasty! As I am a student, and cooking for one person, I just divided the ingredients up for one person, and ate it without the rice. It was just as tasty, and i was full when I finished, I felt it didn't need rice.

Great dinner, a hit with everyone. I couldn't find rogan josh paste so used jalfrezi and doubled the recipe to feed 6. I also used the whole jar of paste (we love our curry sauce) adding an additional 100ml water with each 2 tblsp extra paste and an extra 2 tomatoes. Thanks for another family favourite!!!

Lovely meal. My other half doesnt like spinach so I replaced the spinach with green beans and it went down a treat. The beans added some crunch to the meal which it would have gone without otherwise.

I put the sweet potato in first for a few minutes to roast a bit in the pan, then followed the recipe. Really good
