This recipe can be adjusted to taste, but the flavour is really enhanced if you fry your spices first.

  1. I’ll sometimes add a tablespoon of peanut butter at the end of cooking to give it a Satay flavour. Both ways are popular with the family.

    My first attempt at making a curry and I was not disappointed! I added extra potatoes as I love my spuds ?. I’m the only one who eats curry so I have leftovers for meals next few nights. Thinking next time I might add a bit of cornflour towards the end at thicken it up a bit so it’s not as runny.
