This is the best curry I have ever made. It is really tasty and makes a lot, enough to feed 6.

Not usually a big fan of curry but really enjoyed this! Made several times now often alternating the curry paste for a different taste

Hmmm! This recipe is delicious as it is and doesn't need any tweaking at all.

This recipe was absolutely beautiful and so filling. Have been trying to stick to a lower fat diet recently but was struggling with small food portion sizes. This recipe sorted that out. It is very healthy as well with such a variety of vegetables. Will definitely make this again and it will become a regular, top 5, healthy recipe for me.

This was deeeeelicious! I just made a slight adjustment to the recipe above - adding one chopped courgette and a teaspoon of dried chilli flakes (as well as the 2 tbspn of Thai Red Curry Paste). This was perfect for us and a definite winner for myself, my husband and our 15 year old. Hubby even said he liked it so much he'd eat it again the following night! The Mango Chutney goes really well with it. I didn't serve with Rice - instead I grated a raw Cauliflower into a dish that I then covered and microwaved for 6 mins before adding a touch of salt and black pepper. It LOOKED like rice but didn't have the calories. Yum!
