    Tip

    I like to add some colour to my curries so just before curry is ready I add things like chopped carrot, peas, broccolli etc... To thicken the sauce add either chopped and pre-cooked potatoes (sweet potatoes or nomal potatoes) or cauliflower.

    A favourite with the family. Sometimes I have added Yoghurt or sour cream to the sauce - 25 Jan 2013
