Cook for 5-6 mins until the chicken is browned and cooked through. Stir in the curry paste, cook for 1 min, add the tomatoes, then cook for another min.
  2. Pour in 100ml boiling water and mix well. Simmer for 5 mins, add the spinach, then cook for 2 mins until wilted. Fold in the potatoes and heat through. Serve with rice and naan breads.

Tasted great once made however the potatoes took 45 minutes to cook in the curry before they were soft enough to eat! I had to remove the chicken part way through to avoid it becoming overdone.

used Korma paste and it was delicious. Think it would be even nicer with the paste suggested though :). Also used half butternut squash and half sweet potato to use up what I had in the fridge! A hit with the family, will definitely make again soon!!

Lovely flavours but depends on the paste used, we could have used more paste than 2tbsp as was a bit watery but the flavours were spot on. Would try again with more paste and chopped tomatoes

Really easy and delicious recipe. I replaced the chicken with quorn to make it vegetarian but I think it would also be just as tasty and filling without any meat or meat substitute!

Made the Thai version of this and added some green peppers in with the onions and some coriander at the end. Delicious!

Very tasty recipe , looks very attractive.
Did not use the oil as i was trying to keep it healthy. Used some 1 cal spray to fry off the onions and chicken, then added the curry paste ( which does have quite a bit of oil in it).
Would definately make it again , even for supper with friends.
I did add more than 2 tbspn of paste and it was still a little lacking in 'heat'. I do not like a hot curry but this was still a little mild even for my taste.

This was a good supper, like some of the other posts, I also used a small tin of tomatoes and only had massaman paste so used that. Was a clean and tasty curry.
