Curry is one of my favourite things to cook. You can use up all the bits in the pantry which are looking a little sad and make the most fabulous meal! I adore how it makes my kitchen smell and it tastes even better the next day, after all the flavours have mingled together over night : Making it perfect for lunches.
This curry is so easy to make, you can have it alone or with brown rice and extra vegetables, or a lovely warm nan to mop up all the juices. You’re going to love this one.
