beautiful curry, easy to cook, will definitely have this again - 27 Oct 2013


Absolutely love this recipe & this coming from someone who is not a big fan of curries - 25 Mar 2014


this is a lovely dish and reminds me of the kind of curry you get from a Chinese restaurant. We all loved it and even my non curry loving friend who happened to drop by while I was making it enjoyed it. I kept to the recipe but added some frozen peas which went well. I will make this again. - 16 Mar 2013
