I really wanted to like this as the picture looked so good, I liked the egg whites with the curry but didn't like to yolk with the sauce at all. Did however really like the sauce which I also blended smoother, which is very quick & easy and will go well with chicken or fish.

Really enjoyed this. Cant wait to make it again! i did not have any curry paste so blended curry spices i had in the cuboard. Worked really well. i would recommend adding some fresh corriander at the end. Yum!

Yum. Straight into my 'favourite meals' file. Serve with naan bread to mop up the sauce.

I want to like this, I really do. But there's something a little bit odd about having the eggs in there.

Delicious! The yogurt and eggs really make this feel like a treat.

Very tasty and easy to prepare. I replaced the yogurt by coconut cream and added tofu; my boyfriend loved it.

Very nice curry. You don't have to use a Greek yogurt, a normal plain one is fine.

I blended the sauce before adding the eggs as I prefer a smooth sauce to a lumpy one and it turned out well, it was very tasty.
