I loved this recipe. So quick and tasty! I omitted the extra water (the coconut milk was enough!) and also added a red pepper and 2tbsp red lentils. The timings were perfect. Will definitely make again soon!

I absolutely loved this one! Like many others I omitted the water as well, and I actually added a little extra korma paste for some extra taste. Served on a naan as suggested and it was amazing. Will deffinately make this again.

Swapped the pineapple for mango chunks and was delicious, even just without any rice or naan bread.

It wasn't the most tasty curry I have had but it was ok and very easy to make

Very easy to make, I would not recommend putting in water as its already the nice consistency. Made this for my mum she loved it! Only downside is it was very sweet but if you like that then this is a perfect dish for you!

I added a red pepper and didn't use any water. It was still a bit thin (thin enough to warrant spoons instead of forks), I imagine it will be just right tomorrow. Sweet potatoes did take much longer than stated, too. Despite all that, it was a really easy supper to throw together, and quite tasty too. The pineapple lends a really nice flavour to the usual korma. I would have given it 4 stars if it hadn't been for the inaccuracies in the recipe.

Easy to make, but it was too sweet. It also took much longer for the sweet potato to cook than suggested (I based the size on the recipe picture).
