Lubka Henry says
I’m no a huge fan of curry if it’s too hot. I know there are lots of interesting recipes, but if it’s too spicy, it just kills it for me.
I’m not a fan of really spicy but I do like korma and butter chicken and coconut ones best.
Jessica McDonnell says
These recipes look great – thanks for sharing. I’ve bookmarked the sweet potato one!
Oh your welcome. Please let me know how your cooking goes!
I love curry that I need to eat a dish with it once a week. I am picking the Chicken Curry and Zuchini Noodles to try this week.
Ooh please do let me know how it goes. ??
