Lovely curry, for a family of spicy food lovers, this was a nice change. Although, we like our curries with much more sauce so I added equal amounts of coconut milk and cream to get a nice creamy sauce. First curry I've made that turned out spot on with first attempt. - 19 Jul 2016


I made it exactly as per the recipe, only using ground ciinamon instead of sticks as that was in my cupboard. Very tasty and a new famiy favourite. - 21 Mar 2016


try using cream instead of yogurt for a richer taste. - 28 Jul 2014
