Love this recipe. Make it every week. I agree with most comments that you need to simmer longer than the recipe states. I simmer for approx 20-25 minutes, until the sweet potato is soft. I also only add the stock cube without the liquid. A great curry which tastes great when using other vegetable too!

Quick, easy and delicious!

Really enjoyed this, I used a rogan josh paste. Didn't use aubergine as I don't like it so used courgette, green beans & sweet corn. Cooked for a lot longer than it states. Will definitely make again for Meat Free Monday

Actually created an account to leave feedback on this recipe which is just awful. Brown and watery with no flavour at all, this doesn't even deserve a star, vegetables turned to mush trying to simmer away the extra water. Looked like baby food. Had to throw away, completely inedible and completely disappointed.

Really tasty, I cooked it for longer that the recipe said which made it richer and just so yummly. I will cook this again, 5 stars!

Really enjoyed this as a midweek recipe. Cooked 2 portions and used 3 tbsp rogan josh curry paste, added 1/4 tin chopped tomatoes (as had them left over), used 100ml full fat coconut milk mixed with 100ml water and added spinach and garlic.

Good basic vegetable curry, mild enough for the kids to eat too. Not keen on potato in curry so used cauliflower instead. Great as a main or a side to meat curries. I've done this on a one burner camping stove and added diced chicken thigh bought from the farm Shop next to the camp site. Perfect belly filler

Used full fat coconut milk as there was no light at supermarket and found the sauce to be a little sweet, however not runny. After the 4 tbsp curry paste i added ascoth bonnet as it was not spicy enough i guess my curry paste was not as hot as expected. nice curry though and i think i would add different types of veg depending on what i have in, however always keep the mushrooms, i do love mushrooms in a curry.

I found that the potatoes needed at least 10 mins extra simmering, even when cut up very small. Flavour was lovely, but sauce was a bit thin and slightly gritty. Will be a great curry with some tweaking.

Can you freeze this?

Thanks for your question. You could freeze this although we think it's better when you don't as coconut tends to split when frozen. Our freezable recipes have a blue star above the nutritional information. We hope that helps in future.

Can you use curry powder instead of curry paste?

Thanks for your question, we tested using curry paste and so unfortunately can't guarantee the results if you swap ingredients. If you'd like to give it a go with curry powder, you'll need to experiment with quantities, starting perhaps with a couple of teaspoons. If you do use powder, cook it for 1 -2 mins to release the flavours. Let us know how you get on!

Is there something I can use as a substitute for the coconut milk? Or maybe just leave it out? My husband is allergic to coconuts.

Tasted just like a real authentic potato curry, I added some spinach, madras paste and 1 small red chilli (seeded) to add more spice and left it in the slow cooker on medium for 4 hours, just had it for tea now and was superb! didn't need rice or anything as I felt it was just lovely on its own.

I have made this curry several times now. When my husband first tried it he was not keen and thought it was very bland for a curry, the next time I made it i added one red chilli at the same time as I put in the potato and onion and this made the world of difference.

That is, Squash and sweet potato instead of the potato and aubergine.

Try using butternut squash and sweet potato, cooked in the oven for 20mins and then placed in with the mushrooms. Changed the dish completely and was lovely with brown rice.
