    It might look like a lot of ingredients, but if you measure them first this curry is an easy one pan job. A Jamie Oliver recipe.

      The most time consuming part of this recipe is the prep work but it is well worth it. The end result is a highly seasoned dish that is very attractive to serve. I used canned diced cut tomatoes that were drained and red pepper flakes as I didn't have fresh chili on hand. I topped off the curry with saffron rice and sliced green onions.
