An excelent recipe, but as with almost all curry recipes I felt it needed a tbsp of dark sugar.

Suprisingly tasty and filling for a veggie dish.

I omit the aubergine and use cauliflower instead - either one small or half a large cauli is usually enough - as I much prefer cauliflower. I also marrinade some dieced beef in 3:1 yoghurt/curry paste marinade for about 4 hours and then pre-cook the marrinaded meat for about 45 mins and add this to the mix when I add the curry paste, coconut milk and stock. I agree with need to cook the potatoes longer too. But what a cracking recipe though!

Very easy and tasty - would agree with the comment about cooking the potatoes slightly longer though.

Quick, easy and delicious. I added a bag of spinach and used Pataks Korma paste with a small can of light coconut milk.

Absolutely Fantastic! Used a madras paste (as my husband like a nice hot curry) and added in some sweet potato as well as ordinary potato - and it was delicious. Will definately make it again.

This recipe is really good. I'm not a huge fan of mushrooms but this was really nice and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Having read the reviews, I also used tikka masala paste. Will definitely cook again.

Absolutely loved it. Chucked some chicken in, and would have had some left over for the next day if it hadn't tasted so nice... kept going back for more.

I really enjoyed this and it was so easy to make.
