I wasnt sure to begin with but once the flavours had blended overnight in the fridge I really loved this curry

This made a tasty curry! I used curry paste for the spices as I didn't have them. Having banana in a curry isn't something I'm used to but it tasted really good. Thanks!

Omitted the chillis and ginger (didn't have any), used Thai Red Curry Paste, a tin of crushed tomatoes instead of two fresh ones, and added a tin of coconut cream, 'coz I'm inclined to make things more creamy!! Would have been fine without, but was trying to make it go a bit further for leftovers. Just superb, my non-veg, anti-chickpea hubby says it's a keeper, and so easy to whip up. Served it with plain couscous,which soaked up the juices wonderfully.
