    I made this but used the “super savers” cookbook version. Lovely! Very very mild though, I would definitely add some curry powder or chilli of some description next time (I am not at all good with spicy food but felt this needed just a little ‘something’). All in all, it was really good and I will definitely make it again.

    I added chopped carrots at the start and then about 30 minutes before the end I added chopped broccoli and cauliflower and a generous amount of baby spinach leaves and served over rice.

  2. Really enjoyed this, and kids loved it too. Used diced peeled potato as didn’t have enough chicken, and would do that again. Browned chicken/onion first. Added 2 tsp curry powder. Next time will roast some veggies to stir through for adults (kids like veggies raw on the side).
