my favourite curry recipe


if you had asked me 5 years ago to eat curry i would never have thought about it. i used to be such a picky eater (and probably still am) but i've been trying really hard to broaden my horizons when it comes to food. 

i made this curry the other night and i love it! it's so easy to make and i can usually get 4-5 meals out of one batch for myself. i thought i would share the recipe for those who are looking to try new things too! hope you enjoy :) 

recipe originally found here from the messy baker.
