  3. Stir in most of the coriander, season and heat for a minute or so.Top with yogurt and the rest of the coriander. Serve with naan bread.

Very much enjoyed this meal! Had to make it with sweet paprika instead of chili powder due to spice intolerance in a friend, but it worked very well. Cumin would be nice too. I replaced coriander with parsley because I'm not a big fan of coriander. It worked beautifully. Will make again!!

So delicious and cheap. I serve it with balsamic vinegar to splash on top - only adds to the amazing taste!

I made this for dinner tonight and kept apologising because it was so flavourless. I checked the recipe several times to make sure I didn't miss anything. I don't think I'll bother with this recipe again, there are much better curry recipe's out there.

Made this tonight. Used 2 good tablespoons of yellow Thai curry paste (as my daughter has a garlic intolerance) and garlic free curry powder ....1 tsp. also switched out the parsnips for celery and broccoli. I really liked it. I used an organic vegetable broth as stock plus a little powdered veggie stock. It was tasty. I served it with the flatbread as suggested. Read my comments on that. It was a nice combination.

totally gorgeous - I used Patak's Madras curry paste and it worked really well. Warming, tasty and filling - a good one for a cold night.

Much tastier than I expected. Will definitely add this to my repertoire. Very simple and to give it a little more heat I chopped some little red chillies on the top. Served with chappatis and it was yummy! Good to take to work the next day.... If there is any left.

Made this meal for dinner based on the reviews and I have to say I am very very disappointed. The dish is boring, salty and has no depth to it. We love curries and I was hoping for a nice cheap veggie version but should have thought that using only curry powder it won't come out with much flavour. Don't think my hubby will be impressed, as was not my little one. Better cook alternative meal quickly. Won't be making again.
