Recipe Notes

  • If the curry is a little too thin tip a stirred mixture of 2 tbsp of corn flour and 4 tbsp cold water into the pot and leave to simmer 5 minutes or so.
  • Add chopped dried apricots or sultanas and some flaked almonds if you like them.
  • Add hotter curry powder if you prefer it.
  • You can use reduced fat yoghurt but it will not be as creamy and maybe thinner.
  • Once cooled and covered it can be frozen for yet another quick mid-week meal.
  • This recipe can also be cooked on the hob over a gentle heat for 1-2 hours. Stir from time to time.
  • This recipe too can be cooked in the oven in a 150 C/300 F/Gas Mark 2 for 2 hours in a casserole pot with a lid.
