    Dina Cohen's Note:

    This is a very simple curry. You can add any vegetable that you like. I found this recipe on the post punk kitchen and changed it a bit. You can add only half a lemon juice if you don't like a strong tart flavor. Throw in your favorite vegetable (eggplant, sweet potato, pepper, etc.)

      Good curry. I used tempeh instead of tofu cause I like that more. The tempeh I first fried in a little oil until golden brown and crispy. Furthermore i substituted the vegetable stock for a can of chopped tomatoes and added a little water to meat the 500ml stated. For vegetables I used mushrooms and round green beans. The curry is easy to make and I like the fact that I can use a variety of vegetables. The lemon use is essential to this curry, gives it just that little extra. Thanks for posting.
