Everyday Cooks Tips:

  • *Curry paste: Check the jar to see how much to use for 4 servings
  • **Crème fraîche/cream: It isn’t authentic, but useful if the curry is too spicy
  • Quantities: It isn’t much more effort to double the quantities and make enough curry to freeze a meal for another day
  • Serving tip: Use frozen rice to speed up serving time: Defrost while the curry cooks, then pour boiling water over until the rice is piping hot
