You might have got the idea that I like making curries. I really do! This one is different from the others in the fact it doesn’t use a pre-made paste. The flavours are based entirely in a gorgeous, thick tomato sauce. If you leave it to simmer with the lid off the pan, it’ll reduce beautifully. This is a very mild curry – garnish it with sliced red chillies to build up heat if you want it – leave off if you don’t!

Serves – 2
Prep / Cooking time – 5mins / 40mins
