Very nice Monday night recipe:) I didn't have a pepper so added an extra onion and a couple of rounds of frozen chopped spinach. Used leftover roast potatoes and a sprinkle of dried coriander. Agree with the comments regarding the volume of liquid but added water to suit our taste. Will make again and maybe with lamb, chicken or prawns.

Sorry to the people who gave comments about this curry. I am new to this app and hit the wrong buttons, again sorry

A really tasty curry. The only negative comment I have is that the liquid amount was inadequate. We like a "saucy" curry so I added extra.

I didn't use up left-overs, but used fresh chicken and potatoes. Very tasty!

What is a gluten-free alternative to curry paste and why does it matter whether or not it's gluten free?

Hi there, 

Some curry pastes contain gluten, however there are some available that don’t. It's only a concern if you are following a gluten-free diet, if not then don't worry. 

Best wishes.
