  1. This was really nice. Very easy to cook and very tasty. Family loved this dish. I did add turmeric (real not powder) for health reasons.

  2. I made this last night and left the chilli out because of the kids. I think leaving them out made it really bland but after adding 1 teaspoon keens curry powder and some sugar for sweetness it was delicious and I’ll make it again this way

  3. Made this last night amazing flavours. I used chopped chicken fillets for ease everything else as recipe. Will definitely make again

  4. I have cooked this delicious recipe twice now and it is a huge hit. The flavours are perfect. I will just keep doing it, I love using fresh garlic, ginger ect rather than powder. The grand children are asking for this recipe now and it is so easy to prepare. Thank you Paulene.

  5. Hello!
    Just wondering with these herbs & spices

    garlic, paprika, ginger, coriander, parsley

    Are they fresh, granules, dried or powder?
    Wasn’t sure, so just used what was on hand and if had more than one type took a guess. Not sure I guessed right tho, so clarification would be helpful ??

    Thanks a lot!!
