Accessories you need



If I have left over roasted sweet potato I will add this to the curry.
Also a nice curry with sausages but my family likes the sausages cooked in the frying pan so after I have added the coconut cream I cook the curry for 7 mins instead of 15 mins and put cooked sausages in the thermo server and pour the curry sauce over the top.

    I made this today nad found it quite tasty but needed more oomph, I would make it again but would keep the chilli seeds and not zest the lemon before putting it in. If I was introducing curry to kids, this is the one I would use. Many thanks for posting,

    I just made this recipe with some leftover steamed chicken and the result was delicious. I added the chicken with the coconut cream and used speed 1...adjusted the cooking time to 7 minutes and added the baby spinach for the last minute. Thanks for a great recipe 😊

    Really delicious, so many flavours. Just wondering if you use the zest of a whole lemon or just a strip of zest? Also, when do you add the stock? I nearly forgot to add it as it's not mentioned in the method. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. YumLove
