Thoroughly enjoyed this curry - nice and mild (flavoursome too!) for those who don't like their curries too hot. Quick and easy to prepare. Would suggest parboiling the potatoes first as otherwise they would be a bit hard if they were just cooked as suggested here.

Loved this! I also put in more than 2 potatoes and had to cook it for a little longer than the recipes says but it tasted amazing and much healthier than a take-away! :)

Did not like this recipe at all. Don't know how they managed to get a lovely rich brown looking curry sauce in the photo above. With all that passatta, what I got was basically a very red very heavy tomato sauce, nothing like a curry in any way. Disappointing.

Really great mid week curry. I changed some of the ingredients to madras curry paste (3 teaspoons), I added peas instead of the green beans and I only used 2 teaspoons of the natural yoghurt (as didn't want to drown out the spice! It had a lovely tomato/spicy kick to it. My only fault with the recipe is, that you have to par boil the potatoes first about 15-20 mins so that they are soft but not over cooked as I found (after 30 mins of cooking that the potatoes were still hard, so I had to take them out, and boil them on high heat for 15 mins and then put back in the curry for another 10 mins). Otherwise a great curry and will definately make again.

Call me naive but I don't cook a lot haha.
How long do you need to parboil the potatoes for?

Thankyou :)

We really liked this curry, it's healthy, but tasty at the same time. I liked the addition of the yoghurt, gives it a 'creamy' texture:)

We really liked this dish. I substituted the potatoes for squash, which made it very tasty. It is very mild, but still has lots of flavour, and my 10 month old daughter loved it!

This was delicious. I made it almost as the recipe: I parboiled about 400g new potatoes and added as per the recipe (I thought 2 was a bit stingy!). I also added 3tbsp of curry paste. Meal was very substantial and with the extra potatoes served 5-6. Full of flavour but not spicy which was perfect for me. Served with rice and naan bread. Yum!

Would add more curry next time around. Excessively mild.

I used philidelphia instead of yoghurt and it worked very well. Not a bad curry at all.

This was ok but definitely not my favourite curry recipe on here- a bit too tomatoey and mild for my liking!

Loved this, very healthy but also really quick and easy to make. Would add more curry or a hotter curry next time but had kids to consider.
