This is another dish that Nanda sends home for me from the office and it is divine. It is a super quick and easy meal to prepare so is ideal for any busy week day dinner. If you prefer your sauce a little thicker, you can stir through a little cornstarch just before serving. Enjoy this dish with rice or more traditionally with baguette.

I wish I had a Nanda!
And I wish I could share her with you. 😉
sounds like a really quick and tasty curry! thanks for sharing it with us!
I bet this would be a nice one to serve your girls too 🙂
Curry is just the best thing ever isn’t it! I always stick to one base recipe (see my latest post) which bizarrely is almost the same as this. Do you ever use fruit in any of the curries you make. I would imagine your location lends itself to exotic fruit?
Hi Natalie, nice of you to stop by again – I toss up between this and my Green Thai Curry Chicken recipe the most. They are both very different to each other and both delicious. This recipe is MUCH healthier though 😉 Hmm, I don’t think I have ever used fruit in any of my curries, however make accompaniments/condiments like Kutcha and Atchar (although this is a vegetable version) with the local fruit. Your recipe sounds fabulous too – I love the addition of spinach.
