Simple but very tasty! I used 1.5 tbsp of Madras curry paste, as we like our curries a little spicier, and half-fat creme fraiche instead of yoghurt. Delicious and devoured by 7 other dinner guests. Only giving 4 stars because I swapped a couple of ingredients.

Next week try a special sort of italian dough with a tomato and basil based sauce on it. You can buy those at Tesco a the same time you buy the Pataks paste. They can come topped off with mozzarella or if you are really pushing the boundaries try the one with ham and pinapple. If you think a couple of boiled eggs tipped into a factory paste with a tin of tomatoes is funky, that will blow your mind.

This curry is so easy to do and it is absolutely lovely. I added some spinach this time for a change.

Lovely simple dish. I used Madras curry paste so made it quite spicy but then poured some extra Greek yoghurt on top of served curry as well as a 'sprinkle' of corriander and it was delicious!

Incredibly easy to make and speedy too. I used 2 tbs of mild curry powder and those that wanted more spice added killer pickles to their plates!

This sounds pretty weird but honestly it is really yummy. Really easy for a quick supper and a great alternative to take away.

Yummyyy! I substituted some ingredients with my home made  curry paste, yogurt and fresh peas. Also cooked it in my non-toxic natural clay pot that I got from (online) and the flavors were fantastic. While cooking in clay pot just need to use half the amount of oil and it also holds all the nutrients in the food.  Most times i cook without any oil and it turns out just as good.

Being a Indian, I am use to having egg curries and they are my all time favorites. Whenever time is short, egg curries always comes handy. Try frying the boiled eggs before putting them in the curry sauce. Fry them in little bit of oil with a pinch or turmeric powder and salt..

Me and my boyfriend love this recipe as it is really simple and very tasty. Don't usually bother with the peas (or mango chutney) as I'm not a big fan but can substitute other fresh green vegetables.

Really tasty, low on calories and especially nice with the mango chutney. I halved the number of eggs and used korma paste instead of tikka, but the whole meal was really nice for something so low on calories.
