Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan. Cook onion with the dry spices over a low heat for 5-6 mins until the onion is light golden. Add the chilli, garlic and ginger and cook for 1 min, then throw in the mixed vegetables and cook for a further 5 mins.

  2. Divide the mixture appropriately between two pans if serving vegetarians and meat eaters. Chop the chicken into small chunks and stir into one pan. Add the stock, dividing between the pans appropriately, and simmer for 10 mins (if only cooking the veggie version in one pan, use 300ml stock; if dividing between two pans, add 250ml to each). Divide the peas, if necessary, and add, cooking for 3 mins more until the veg are tender and the chicken is cooked through.

  3. Remove from the heat and stir through the yogurt and ground almonds, if using. Serve sprinkled with the toasted almonds and coriander, with basmati rice or naan bread on the side.

As with many of the other commenters, I doubled the amounts of all the spices. I also used extra onion and garlic and added a squeeze of tomato puree after the garlic, ginger and chilli. I maybe used a bit more veg than listed, 2 sweet potatoes, 2 large carrots, a few cauliflower florets and a courgette, about 900g. I also parboiled the potato, carrot and cauliflower for about 10 mins. It was a really nice thick curry with plenty of flavour. Thick Greek yogurt worked great and I added the ground almond after the yogurt and made sure it was really well mixed, no grittiness. Will definitely make again.

This recipe's a tricky one. Not in terms of preparation and skill, but tricky in terms of finding the balance between thick & watery. But when I finally got it right, I loved the result. The first time I followed this recipe, it was a disaster. Sure, the sauce was... adequate, but the consistency was (like many other comments have stated) basically water with a few spices thrown in. The veg took longer to cook than instructed, and the yogurt curdled in contact with the pan, creating a white grainy texture that coated everything. The finished product looked nothing like the picture, and I was disappointed, but also determined to try again. Now the second time I decided to give this recipe a go, I planned to change a few things: 1)more spices 2)start to boil veg at the same time as creating the onion/spice mix 3)warm yogurt to room temp before mixing/let pan cool slightly. So I began to boil my potatoes/carrots/brocoli whilst cooking onions and spices in separate pan, and continued to follow the recipe. I increased quantity of spices to suit my taste, then added already part-boiled veg as instructed. Once the stock was added, I mixed a spoonful of double cream with the yogurt and heated it in the microwave in several ten second intervals until slightly more than room temp. When veg mix was done and cooled slightly for several minutes, I stirred in the yogurt mix and the sauce thickened to a pale green, and the veg was well cooked in the correct time. It was creamy, flavored and luscious, and made my first attempt look like veggie soup. And also, on my first attempt I only used around 600g of mixed veg, whereas on my second I made sure I used 800g exactly. So if you end up displeased with this meal, the fault is not in the recipe. Don't write it off your cooking list, just try it again with a few alterations, it'll be worth it.

After reading the comments of others I cooked the potatoes and carrots first, then added a squash followed by courgettes and runner beans . I did add the ground almonds which I will leave out next time as gave quite a grainy texture, almost as if something had curdled. Used Greek yogurt and lots of coriander. Next time I will try coconut milk. Even though I had a few reservations about this recipe by husband thought it delicious!

I have made the vegetarian this recipe a couple of times now and I really like it. It's simple quick and easy to do. I use cauliflower, thinly sliced carrots, courgette and peppers. I use a pinch of chilli powder instead of a fresh chilli, enough for a kick but not too much to put my small people off, and I always use plenty of fresh ginger which gives a nice zing. I use the seeds from several cardamom pods and use slightly more spices that recommended above. Personally I like lots of gravy with a curry so I pop in a little extra stock. It keeps and reheats well and to my surprise survived the freezer too! A tasty family meal and certainly not bland!

This was delicious, a great way to use the veg from my veg box. My 2 year old liked it too. I didn't have a green chilli, so I used a bit of lazy chilli from a jar, about 1/2 tsp, as I didn't want it too spicy for the little one, seemed to work well!

Made this yesterday and it was fabulous !!! Before adding yogurt be sure that there is not too much water, otherwise it would be bit runny. Was not sure whether it would have been good idea to reheat. Reheated next day and it was still good.
