  1. My 7 and 4yo both loved this and want me to make it again. I used ginger powder as we didn’t have any fresh, and I omitted the salt and red curry paste. Also only used 1 tspn of garam masala cos we ran out >.<

    This recipe is flexible in that I had it on high for about 1.75 hours (went out and did the shopping), then had it on low for 2 hours. I could have done without the cornflour at all but added it in cos it was the first time i'd made it, and we also added a bit of water as it was quite thick. Probably cos of the cornflour!! We also added a whole red capsicum in the last 20 mins.

    Overall, very easy and kid friendly meal. Will definitely make it again 😀

    I just made this and it is waaaay too salty! I’m not a salt fan so this is almost inedible to me which is a shame as the rest of it is delicious. I used blade steak and had it on one hour high then 3-4 on low.

  3. Rachelle you could try using more curry paste and garam masala, I only put that amount in to keep it kid friendly 🙂

  4. Thanks to the other reviews here, I used salt reduced beef stock and used more red curry paste as we like ‘hot’
    And it was perfect to our tastes.
    I served it with a dollop of greek yoghurt and a chili naan bread.
    A really lovely dish, and will be happy to make this again

  5. We really love this one, great for toddlers with enough leftovers for lunches, I omit curry paste so the toddler can eat,

    Yumm!! I used only 1/2 tsp curry paste and once I’d added the yogurt I also mixed through a couple of chopped, steamed carrots and some raw broccoli and cauliflower. It was fantastic and four adults and 2 toddlers. Plus heaps of leftovers! Definite winner!

  7. Absolutely loved this recipe (as did my family)!!!
    I was a bit tentative taking on a SC recipe that required so much prep but it wasn’t as tedious as I anticipated- 10mins max.
    I used cubed chuck steak and left out the curry paste.

  8. WIN WIN WIN!!!! All 3 of my small boys absolutely demolished this for dinner. The littlest one even went back for seconds. I doubled the curry paste and halved the salt. The flavour was great and not too strong for kids.

  9. Yum yummm YUM!
    I added everything raw at the start (except the yoghurt and cornflour which was added at the end)
    We left out the salt & oil
    It was so good!
    Even the self proclaimed curry hater cleaned his plate completely 😉
    Served ours as is with garlic naan bread
    Thanks Nikki for a delish dinner!

  10. Hi, could you please tell me which paprika we should use and the red curry paste, is that an Indian one or Thai. Sorry for the stupid questions but I haven’t made this before ?

  11. Yummy! Just finished tonight’s dinner and it was delicious. Really flavoursome but not too spicy for my fussy boys (I used yellow curry paste). Everyone gobbled it up and I’m adding it to my ever growing list
