Really enjoyed this. Flavours were good, added two small home grown chilli's and found the heat just nice & warming. Had to substitue sherry vinegar for the red wine vinegar as I didn't have any available. I approximately halved the recipie and didn't think that the portions were too badly sized.

I enjoyed the meal, but the bite factor as a curry was missing. I think I will add more curry than just 1tsp next time, or did i do something wrong in the cooking? Also if that had to be shared between 4 you would be well hungry!
