Hi Lucy,
I haven't commented on your blog before but I've been reading it for a couple of years. I made this curry for dinner tonight and both my children loved it- even my 4 year old who is a very reluctant eater. Thanks so much for sharing- its going into the regular recipe list.


i have just stumbled upon your wonderful blog today...in fact i have fallen in love with it entirely! Think of me making your curry tonight for dinner in New Zealand! Thanks for the recipe and so much crafty inspiration that I won't know where to begin!


Lucy, lovely Lucy! Your blog is really wonderful and uplifting! I'm afraid I only stumbled upon it when I started a Crochet Along on Ravelry, with Debbie Stoller Stitch Nation - we are crocheting the blanket you designed (the baby blanket) with Bamboo Ewe - I saw the curry recipe - just had to make it tonight - fabulous!! And then I sat down to crochet the blanket you designed - quite an evening of Lucy filled goodness! Keep up the lovely blogs!!


Boil in water until everything is done:

Chicken (as much as you like)
Chopped carrots
Cubed potatoes

Drain and set aside.

Bring to a boil:

2 cans unsweetened coconut milk
2 big cans cream of chicken soup
Curry powder (yellow) to taste (about 3 tablespoons)
2 heaping tablespoons (soup spoons) peanut butter

Return meat and veggies to sauce and heat through.

Serve over sticky rice with dry-roasted peanuts and chopped, hard-boiled egg.

I could eat it every day.


YUM! Adding this to my meal plan for next week. Thankyou so much for sharing xxx


Had this for tea tonight with prawns and spinach - it was delicious. Thank you for the recipe x

We had this last night with left over roast chicken and it was truly scrumptious! We're planning roast veg and sausages tomorrow. Thanks for the foody inspiration


well, another follower from a very long time and couldn't hold back after reading this utterly spicy and delicious post about something so simple and so general................I mean we all make curries and every time appreciate the exploding spices making havoc on taste buds. But very few like Lucy capture it in pics and words and make a fairy tale out of it. beaummicious (beautiful,yummy and delicious). Very nice post. Thanks again for the post.


Hi Lucy
I couldn't find an email address on your site, so sending this via comments :) I have a new blog, and wanted to use one of your pictures on it, obviously with full credits and a link to your site. The picture I'd like to use features on your year end review, of the flower wall hanging. Would that be ok? (I'm relatively new to blogging and not sure of the etiquette on using someone elses photo's!!). I've put a link to my blog, though its not 'live' yet, still tweaking......
Many thanks

Hello from Melbourne. Absolutely delicious. Thanks for that, you saved me a trip to the shops as I had all the ingredients in stock!


This curry looks great Lucy, thanks for sharing it. Is quite warm here in Aus but will try and cook it on a cooler day very soon. Love your blog and your patterns, you are one inspirational lady!


Hi Lucy, I can't seem to find an email address on Attic24.. how do I contact you regarding the wishlist for the Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012? :)x

In Australia Garam Masala is readily available in any spice section or asian market - and boy, do we have plenty!.
Coriander (my FAVOURITE herb) is also known as Thai Basil. Bugger to try and grow here in the south!
Another beautiful family-cosy blog, Lucy, as they all are.


What perfect timing! I was sitting here wondering what to do for dinner tonight and then I spotted your post. So a quick supermarket stop later and dinner is sorted. Homemade naan is just rising on the bench. I can't wait for tonight - delicious!! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous recipe hon. L xx


mmm looks good. Might have to give it a try. Love the way families have their own names for meals. Lily pasta is a favourite in our house simply because we first had it when Lily came for tea. If I told them it was pasta with taleggio they'd turn their noses up so Lily pasta it is!


We tried this tonight too and it was very tasty. I have tried making curry paste before but this is definitely the quickest and easiest one. Thank you for sharing it,I will be making it again!


Thanks for sharing this :) We had it for tea tonight and I can report back that it was yummy! Will definitely be making it again :)

Well, we have just had this for dinner. It was as easy as pie and very delicious. I don't think I will ever need the help of Lloyd Grossman again! I did overdo the chilli and I will not put so much in the next time. Thank you, this will be regularly used in this house.


Ooooo looks deliciousy delicious and i just love your spooon, where did u get it from???? major wantieeeee to go on my list!!

Also curious about the "chili powder". Here in the US, chili powder is usually a blend of paprika, cumin, salt, and some cayenne. Is yours just ground chilies? I know that's usually what Indian recipes refer to as chili powder.

Thank you!!!


I've just made your curry Lucy. I put chickpeas in and I've never had chickpea curry before. It was absolutely delicious, thank you for sharing. I think it will be delicious with chicken. I used one teaspoon of hot chilli powder which made it a very spicy dish! The unopened jar of garam masala at the back of the cupboard is "best before" March 2012 so that was fortunate. Looking forward to making it again, with some meat, as my husband complains when he has vegetarian food too much!


I love the honest comment you tossed into your Mother-in-Law's version of the recipe.
Result: A spicier curry and a runny nose! So true.


Thanks for posting this recipe. I've been looking for an (easy) mild curry to tempt the kids with and this looks perfect!

Dear Lycy,
In Brazil, coriander is called 'coentro' and we use it a lot in fish recipes.
