I made this and it was delicious. I found the mix a little dry at the cooking for 5 minutes stage so I added a bit more tinned tomatoes and it worked out perfectly, Yum. This will be one of my go-to dishes on a Friday night instead of a take away. Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to try the others on your list too.

Pleased you enjoyed it! I'm in Holland and I find the tomatoes a little more watery here. Not great overall but work well in a curry!

I have tried it and it worked really well - thanks for sharing. You put a quick apple crumble recipe on the blog in the past but it was a long time ago and I cannot find it. Would be great if you could post it again or just paste the link with the old post. Thank you :) x

Hi Kasia!
I actually made this curry tonight! So quick and easy!
I didn't actually put up the '1 minute apple crumble' recipe, I put up a 'teaser' of as its one of the recipes in the book we're about to publish. It's another really easy and healthy recipe though and I'll see if I can put in on here for you!

Wow!, this was a high-quality post. In theory i might prefer to write like this too – taking time and real effort to create a decent article… but what am I able to say… I keep putting it off and never appear to achieve something..
