    My version of a low fat delicious warming curry. This chicken curry is for two but can be easily doubled to feed the whole family.

    Surprisingly good for so few ingredients. I altered it a little using only the chillies without the seeds, 1 tbsp hot curry powder and creme fraiche instead of yoghurt (as it was what I had in). I also added garlic paste and half a chicken stock cube for a bit more depth of flavour. The amount above served our family of 4 easily and everyone cleared their plates which is a great result for my fussy lot! Thanks for a great recipe.  -  06 Apr 2014


    I used the chilli seeds, but only 1 tbsp. Tandoori curry powder. I added mushrooms, and half a stock cube. The passata already had garlic in it. Lovely full flavoured curry - really enjoyed.  -  08 Apr 2014


    Really tasty. I added a handful of chesnut mushrooms, half an aubergine and a green pepper. I found it served 4. I left out the chilli's but used dried chilli flakes and tinned tomatoes instead. Will definitely be making it again. Much cheaper than a jar of paste!  -  06 Aug 2015
