  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Fry the onions in the remaining oil in a large pan until softened and golden – add a splash of water if they start to dry out. Stir in the remaining curry paste, cook for 3 mins, then add the passata, coconut milk and 100ml water. Simmer for a few mins.

I have to admit that this has been THE best vegetable curry recipe I've ever made- even the kids loved it !!! My wife who's a vegetarian was very impressed. The real beauty of this recipe is that it's sooo easy to adapt and change too !
XLNT :)

This curry was so lovely. I added some chopped chicken thighs which were quickly fried off before adding with the courgettes and peppers. Clean plates all round - including my fussy step-daughter who normally eats round the veggies. Had enough for dinner for 4 plus 4 lunches. My husband liked it so much he has requested one for lunch tomorrow. We used 6 tablespoons of Madras Curry paste which gave just the right amount of kick. Definitely recommended.

I tried this recipe this weekend and it is amazing! fantastic flavours, lots of chunky vegetables and it goes a long way. Three of us had a large portion each and I have enough left over for two more meals.. well worth making.. highly recommended
love it!!!

I did the recipe exactly as described and thought it was great. Sauce was thick and all the veggies were lovely. It could easily be adapted for other vegetables too. Great to make because we can freeze some portions but make sure you have a really big pan!

I have made this recipe many times and always change the ingredients depending on what I have. The baking bit is what makes it...it is so easy.

very easy to make and very tasty. However I did change the potato to sweet potato and left out the 100ml of water as another comment I had read said sauce wasn't very thick. Over all though great curry!!

This is the best vegetable curry I have made and will now be the staple veggie curry in my repertoire. I replaced the aubergine with a sweet potato as no-one in the family enjoys aubergine.
Lovely rich sauce. You will need a very large pan - I had to split it between two pans.

This is fab! I usually opt for meat curries and this is the first veggie recipe I tried - it was delicious. Did it exactly as the recipe said and the sauce came out lovely and thick. Ideal recipe for batch cooking as well although you'll need a huge pan - I had to use a wok in the end.

I have made this a couple of times and for a family of ardent meat eaters it goes a treat, the different veg gives it lots of texture, tastes great and proper easy to throw together

This is great. Used a mix of rogan josh and tikka masala paste as I didn't have enough of either - they actuall worked well together. Really easy to make. I just served with Naan bread and so served more curry so it only served 4 portions...

this is great, easy to make and doesn't take too long to prep either, you do need a seriously big pan to cook it in - be warned!!!! tastes delicous and any meat lover would be happy eating this. enjoy.

This is a fantastic curry, I made it for my vegetarian brother in law and the rest of the family loved it including my husband who doesn't really like vegetables!! Making it again now just for us and going to freeze the rest.

Was nice, but not as good as many of the other vegtable curries of bbcgoodfood. Probably wouldnt chose to make it again over another one, it had a nice flavour but was very thin and could do with being more flavoursome.

This was lovely! I would use slightly less butternut squash and more potato next time but that's just personal preference. I'll definitely be making this again :)
