  • Handful of sliced green beans

  1. Pour oil into heavy based pan, add onions and garlic and cooked gently until transparent.

  2. Add curry powder and cook gently for two minutes to develop flavour.

I used 1 tsp Mild Curry powder and 3 tbsp Masala curry powder. I also substituted the Sugar for 40g Mango chutney. Everyone ate it so all good.
