I’ve made this a few times now, and it’s a fantastic recipe to make a milder curry for all the family, you can omit or deseed the green chilli to keep it even calmer, but it’s not too strong with it. The peas are optional too, they add a sweet burst as you eat it (and another one of your five a day!), it’s lovely with, or without them! This is great to keep in the fridge if you’ve some left over, the flavours really infuse more, so it’s even better a second time around!
