It was very nice, they only thing i did different was cooked the potato for 15 minutes on their own ,then added to curry and cooked till ready ,potatoes were soft but still shaped .Will def make again - 30 Jul 2015


it needed more water than stated in this recipe and the potato was too mushy by the time it was finished at the end of the cooking time stated. Would make a few adjustments if I were to use this recipe again. - 13 Mar 2014
