This makes a nice meal. We had ours with a jacket potato and salad. I also added turmeric and paprika to give it a bit more colour.

I went heavy on the yoghurt, light on the stock and added a large fresh chilli pepper... and I have to say this was delish. It doesn't start as much, tasting like a mild chili con carne early in the cooking process, but by the time it's reduced down and the final glut of yoghurt is folded in it's superb comfort food. Served on basmati.
Pretty good

Nice enough curry esp if you add mango chutney. Hunsband will enjoy leftovers for lunch tomorrow
