This is one of my favourite meals. I steam all my vegetables first in the microwave, then add to a wok after cooking the onion and balti sauce. I have lost 12lbs since January using this one recipe. Thank you good to know. Also, if you microwave the sqaush first it makes it so much easier to peel and chop.


Lovely tasting curry. Waterier than I would've liked so maybe add less stock (I added 300ml so less than that is needed). It wasnt as spicy that I would've liked so I added some curry powder and also added spinach. Was lovely. :) x
