This was a really easy dish, only complaint i felt like the sauce was slightly bland - next time I will flavour the oil with cumin seeds and spices before adding anything else.

Could you change the Korma paste for Red Curry Paste. I have this in the kitchen already?

Such a tasty dish, I always serve with a little rice as there is always a lot of runny sauce to soak up. This recipe is sooo quick and simple as well, I make it quite offten. And I always feel like Ive been quite healthy after due to so much spinach I think!!!
