I couldn’t find curry leaves in Woolworths so I’ve used Keens Curry and ground Cardamom lets see how it tastes.
You can buy a “curry leaf” tree. I guess you could buy them dried in a asian store!
Curry leaf and Curry powder have very different flavours. How did it go? I found some Curry leaves at an asian grocery store
Yum – I love curry and this recipe looks easy and your presentation is sensational!
Wow love the photo! and it sounds tasty might have to give it a try
Great curry recipe and fantastic presentation.
You could also use a slow cooker instead of a pressure cooker, and curries always taste better the next day.
Keep up the great recipes.
Yes a slow cooker is a great idea! Thanks for the comments!
Hi, I can’t get hold of black or brown cardamon , what can I use as a substitute . Please help I’d really like to make this curry tonight!!!
Perfect dish for winter
How many people does this dish serve ?
Cooked this in the pressure cooker for 20 minutes, didn’t bother pre-doing the potatoes, just added them straight to the mix. Delicious and easy, I will probably add a little more chilli next time though.
