REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Currently our favorite curry!!
The recipe is very easy to follow, and so far we've tried chicken, prawns, beef and lamb, all with delicious results. I miss out the green chilli, and don't cook the meat mix until dry (as stated)so that there is a sauce left.
It doesn't look or taste anything like a patia from our local curry house, but it is still an excellent recipe.
