This was really good. The curry flavor was perfect and it was so creamy. Great comfort food! It did take a bit of effort but I will definitely make it again. The only thing I changed was using plain yogurt instead of mayo because I'm allergic to soy. My husband and little ones loved it too! I might add a bit of cayenne pepper next time, but that's it. Thanks for posting!

I was checking to see if this recipe was already here, as I was going to add it! It is the exact recipe my Mum gave me years ago. She used to make it a lot, it was my favourite dish as a child, and still is today! :)
