This was dead easy to make, i added mushrooms and garlic. We both loved it and has gone into my hard copy recipe folder to cook again.

Go easy on the curry paste though if you use the Barts one recommended.

This was delicious and so easy to make. I cut the peppers into smaller bite size pieces and added babycorn and tinned water chesnuts. Will make again for sure!

An easy family favourite. I make this milder for my toddlers and add lots more veggies - try courgettes, green beans or peas. A great way of getting more vegetables into kids.
