    This was fantastic. I added some veggies. Next time I will lower the amount of chicken broth and up the coconut milk for a thicker consistency. Super easy and I’m looking forward to the leftovers!

    Was really yummy! I didn’t have curry powder so just used cumin and turmeric as a substitute turned out amazing!

    lovely curry! Was slightly watery for my tastes, so I did boil it off for longer than advised, but it came out fantastic and very tasty! To add a bit of green, I put in brocolli at the same stage the onions were added.

    It worked! I put a little too much coconut milk, but I thickened it at the end. Proud!
