That looks wonderful. I have never made curry before but have been asked to hundreds of times. I think I shall make this for my lovely man as a surprise Valentines meal. Thanks for the inspiration, Lucy!xx

Laura Miller

Thanks Lucy. Will definitely try this as DH loves curry (what British man doesn't)but the kids have never been keen. x


Just wanted to say Hi! I am a bit of a lurker, have been reading your blog for a while -love it! Thanks for the fantastically clear tutorials, my beginning crochet skills are coming along a treat because of them. Curry sounds yum, will give it a go very soon.


Lucy, I've only recently found your blog (Christmas week) and it never fails to entertain and inspire me. Can't wait to try the curry and will be buying bananas today!


Yesss the curry recipe! :D I've never seen the garam masala spice here in Belgium in supermarkets, but there's an Indian supermarket just a few blocks away. I am going to try this recipe this week, nom nom I love curries! :-) xxxx


I read your blog and watch all those beautiful things that you've made and I'm impressed. Everything is so colorful and happy... I wish you all the best!!
If you would like come ans visit my blog www.szydelkoagusi.blogspot.com


I've been hoping this recipe would appear and there it is! Thank you Lucy - what a versatile girl you are and what a discerning chap Little B is becoming!


Yes I shall try this one... did your sweet and sour sausages the other night and that was delish. Thanks Lucy, keep it up. xxxx


Cant believe it Lucy, I've been waiting for you to put this on since you first posted about it, Only to discover today that it the recipe I use already. A real family winner all round and so quick and simple.


looks great, will try making my own paste, I usually cheat! I tend to add a banana to my curries too - love the sweetness.


Here in Spain is called cilantro too. I can already smell this coocking at my kitchen...thanks!

one word : Wow!
I must try it! Very appetizing pics!

Wow, if you enjoy eating Indian inspired food, you might like Mexican too and it it soo much easier to make. I just mention it because I see you are able to get cilantro in the UK. Most Mexican food only requires onion, garlic, chile, tomato and cilantro.


Hi Lucy, it certainly looks and sounds yummy, I shall store this one way for a try in the cooler weather, it's currently 35 celcius here in Melbourne, Australia! xx

I've been 'lurking' on your blog for ages & I think this is my first comment. Hi!

I was inspired to actually *cook* tonight because of your post. We just happened to have leftover roasted chicken in the fridge, so I made the curry. We seem to have run out of garam masala, so I substituted some random curry powder from the cupboards, plus extra cumin.

It's SO GOOD. My 17-month-old loves it too. He actually ate a fair bit of the paste off a spoon when I offered it to him to taste. Definitely a curry baby. :)

Pretty much any Indian food & cooking ingredient is easy to get here on the west coast of Canada--we've got the biggest population of Sikhs outside India, last I checked. :)

Thanks for posting this!


Looks yummy, happy to hear that little ones like it, perhaps a teenage boy would too! I will try it and thanks for sharing :)

You are right coriander is called cilantro in places that speak spanish. I am from Mexico and we eat it a lot. You can also use it in guacamole which is avocado with chopped onion, tomato in little cubes, cilantro, bit of salt and the juice of 1/2 lime. You can it with tortillas or crakers or nachos. If you want you can add some chile.
One tip for the chile for the curry: you can cut it lenghtwise and with a spoon take all the seeds off. Cut it very fine and you can use it in everything (including the guacamole). This way it isn´t very hot or "picante".


Lucy where do you get all your wonderful coffee mugs? I just love them!

Yummy! Thanks for the delicious recipes. I just made your Lentil Peanut Bake for the first time last week (minus the peanuts, as I had forgotten what I was saving them for and ate them all....oops!) but my family of boys & husband LOVED it (well, 5 of the 6 of us did, anyway). Even without the peanuts! I can't wait to try this curry now.

Deco Cat

That sounds delicious, a good recipe to try this weekend I think. Please can you tell me where you got your gorgeous spoon?


I will have to try your curry recipe! I have always wanted to make my own (there are very few curry oriented resturants in the U.S). Thank you for all your year in reviews and lovely posts! It's been awhile since I've sat down to enjoy it. Thanks again!


Thanks for another good recipe. I did the Hugh FW banana bread today, I didn't have a lemon, and I added some chopped apples, and some ginger and cinnamon, because I had it in the cupboard, but apart from that I stuck to the recipe and it was divine!

Anne (I should be sleeping)

It certainly looks divine :)
Here in Australia, we can readily buy all the ingredients you've used.
I'll be giving this one a go!


Oooooh!! I'll definitely be trying this tomorrow! Was just wondering what on earth we were going to eat. It looks scrumptious!


Oh, I love Garam Masala! In the US, you can get it in the international section of a supermarket, or order it online from a spice shop (I get mine from Penzey's). Yummy!
