    A curry for non curry people. Lacked taste needed addition of 1tsp of curry powder. - 04 Feb 2014

    this was delicious without the cream. I used 3 skinned and deseeded tomatoes rather than 8 (this was all I had in my fridge) plus half a carton of passata (250mls). When I added the full amount of cream I found this really dulled the flavours. Think it would be tastier with at least half the cream recommended in the recipe, and also a lot healther. - 23 Nov 2010
