Excellent curry. I put chicken in too. Very nice, very easy and I had all ingredients except curry leaves.
Extremely good, enjoyed this for supper last night and cleverly made enough so that I could have it for lunch today! Easily prepared ... I used the tinned tomato option, its spicy but pleasantly so, my son enjoyed it and he is not a great curry lover. I prepared this while the rice cooked, everything came together perfectly, I had an excellent supper on the table within a half hour, what a pleasure. Thanks, Jan, for an excellent recipe!
