This was a lovely winter warmer curry. Well received by everyone. I wouldn't change a thing.

Made this for the first time tonight and it was lovely. My husband always pulls a sceptical face when I say we are eating vegetarian food as he is very much a meat eater but he really enjoyed it and went back for seconds. I used balti paste and used a bit more for extra heat. I was worried the tomato/garlic mix was too thin but it worked really well and I actually had to add a little more water to stop it sticking. Next time I would add chickpeas for variety.

Very tasty, needed a bit more curry paste for our tastes. We added some left over cooked chicken too.
