Make this for kids for school. They live it. I load it with chopped veg and it lasts a few days in a big bowl. Very tasty.

Just made for the second time, and we love it! This time I had all the ingredients, and added more like tablespoons of tikka masala paste, and it was wonderful, as we like a bit more kick in our curries, but not too hot to ruin the flavours. Highly recommend, this will be my BBQ side dish for 2014!!

Made this for a BBQ - I thought it tasted 'ok' when I tried it but it was the only side dish that was left at the end of the BBQ, so will not be making it again.

Hi Rachel, It's a pasta salad that can be enjoyed on its own or with an selection of other salads. A tomato salad would work well. Thanks.
