This was my first curry and it turned out pretty good. My fiance loves curries and thought this could do with a little extra spice, so next time I'll double the amount of masala paste. Overall simple and tasty! - 25 May 2011


Nice easy recipe. Definitely put more paste or curry powder in as it wasn't spicy at all. - 20 Sep 2014


very tasty and filling also very nice with garlic bread or narm bread. - 25 Oct 2011
