I have made this recipe several times now and I think the cooking time depends on what sort of potatoes you use. Last year I used Cornish Kings and Charlottes and they worked fine. Today I'm using Desiree and they are taking a lot longer to cook. This is a wonderful recipe. I've even used it with sweet potatoes and it was a great success.

A really easy yet delicious curry. I left out the aubergine, but only because my husband doesn't like them. I found the potato chunks took a lot longer to cook and would par-boil them for a few minutes next time.

Made it with curry powder instead of paste, as I didnt have any, also added cinnamon and a little brown sugar. Delicious!

Excellent. I used large mushrooms sliced and balti curry paste. I only added about 3/4 of a tin of coconut milk then stopped as I felt it would have been too runny with the whole tin.

This was fab. Very quick to make, so tasty, actually tastes like a curry! And there's plenty of it, so you can freeze it for future dinners.

Just realised I didnt rate the recipe, I thought it so good I give it 5 stars.

Absolutely lovely! I am not an accomplished cook and still this easy recipe turned out totally delicious, for once a recipe saying "serves 4" was actually correct as I usually find serves 4 really means serves 2 (we like our food lol) anyway I highly recommend you give this a go, I used the full fat coconut milk not the low fat and it was a creamy smooth tasty curry, just yum! :-)

I used butternut squash and mushrooms with madras paste as we like it hot.It was very good.

this was absolutely delicious and pleased even the most dedicated carnivore. i used chestnut mushrooms (because they're nicer...) and madras curry paste. par boiled the potato first, as suggested in the comments. there were no leftovers and i shall be making this one again!
