Have made this as a winter curry, but as it's summer and I have too many squash, I have swapped the veg: 6 carrots, 1 summer squash, 2 sticks of celery. A nice freezer staple.

This was a lovely winter warmer curry. Well received by everyone. I wouldn't change a thing.

Made this for the first time tonight and it was lovely. My husband always pulls a sceptical face when I say we are eating vegetarian food as he is very much a meat eater but he really enjoyed it and went back for seconds. I used balti paste and used a bit more for extra heat. I was worried the tomato/garlic mix was too thin but it worked really well and I actually had to add a little more water to stop it sticking. Next time I would add chickpeas for variety.

Very tasty, needed a bit more curry paste for our tastes. We added some left over cooked chicken too.

When you say 'small pack' toasted flaked almond, or 'small pack' coriander, for example, how am I supposed to know how much this is? Do you have a base of recommended makes, brands, packs or something? Am I missing something?
