Recipe by Triedandtested

An adaptation from that works - this is the base sauce for many of the curries I will be posting over the next few weeks. This sauce will freeze so multiply it up and freeze down for quick curries.

I made this to use in recipe 167479 (Recipe Standard Saag Aloo) and it was great. I now have a batch in the freezer so I'd love to know what else I can use it for - please post some more recipes using this!
